Adobe Dreamweaver CS5: simplification and help for the new users.

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Friday, November 27, 2015

First time users encountered an improved and simplified assistants, to save confusion. In addition, instructions on how to efficiently use the default layout of a web page for someone without experience have included a constant help. I also found something really useful is that we can navigate the HTML and PHP using the same links page, and can filter files by format to focus on the construction of PHP or CSS layout.

Something that greatly appreciate the DTP is the new mode called Inspect Mode, If we add the possibility of seeing how the HTML code automatically changes depending on the Javascript event we are running live in the rendered web page, Dreamweaver win many points comfort against its competitors. And for those who like to observe the code of other websites to learn (not to borrow code, hopefully), Dreamweaver is now able to surf the Internet and see live changes in the source code of any page. Dreamweaver CSS5 has full support for Subversion, which can seamlessly manage the development of our websites using the version control system SVN

Pros

  • The program starts quickly and has a light and fast performance
  • Improved and streamlined assistants to novice users

Cons

  • Not a single improvement over databases

One of the best and most powerful web development tools using WYSIWYG developmental approach

By Vincent Logan Varenberg

On Friday, November 28, 2014

I have personally been an avid fan and user of Dreamweaver even way back even before it was acquired by Adobe and it was known then as Macromedia Dreamweaver. I like Dreamweaver specifically because of its robustness and versatility. Now in its newest version, Dreamweaver CS5 is a far cry from its Macromedia days.

Dreamweaver CS5 is one of those web development software that lets developers see the way how their site page will look, as well as show the corresponding codes. Even though Dreamweaver is one of those top-level software that experts use, it also happens to be a great starter software for web developers who want to sharpen their web development skills. Users can select templates and customize it, add images and links and make the final touches. Really very easy to learn. More advanced users can also take advantage of Flash elements that can be added to their websites.

Overall, Dreanweaver CS5 is an excellent web development tool that all web developers at any level will truly find very useful.

Pros

  • Great WYSIWYG web development tool
  • Perfect for beginners while challenging at the same time for intermediate to expert developers

Cons

  • Some visual aspects need to be fine-tuned at the code side
