The best web development tool available Adobe Dreamweaver Review by James Meyette

By James Meyette

On Friday, August 1, 2014

Adobe Dreamweaver offers an intuitive “WYSIWYG” or “What you see is what you get” user development interface and a helpful code editor with features including code completeiong, code collapsing, and syntax highlighting(everything you would expect from any IDE) the WYSIWYG design view allows you to not touch a line of code if you so choose, but if you would like you can go in and set things up the way you want as long as you are comfortable using HTML, CSS and JS programming languages. Dreamweaver also has the functionality to use third party extensions so you are not limited to just using the basics and you can also extend it if you are familiar with programming in the language/s required to do so.

Dreamweaver 8 was the last version that was marketed by Macromedia (prior to Adobe Aquiring them). Currently Available on Windows and OS X operating systems it can be used by anyone for any needs associated with making and polishing your website.

Now with the Adobe Creative cloud you don't have to spend a small fortune up front in order to get access to it etiher you can ue Adobe's payment options to license the software and have use of it as long as your subscription is paid.

Pros

  • Quick and easy to make websites with minimal to no coding
  • Easy to use and intuitive user interface
  • Plenty of tutorials and documentation on its use

Cons

  • You have to either pay upfront for a legacy version or pay a monthly subscription fee
  • There could be some more features as some users have mentioned but there is nothing significant missing from it

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 is the perfect tools for those people who have their own business and want to design their own website. Of course, people who just want to have their own website, without having any kind of business can also enjoy this software, but it provides a professional look to your site and this is very useful to important companies and businesses. With this program, you can develop and design your web. Nevertheless, the software does not everything for you; you need previous knowledge about web design, especially in the CS5 version. Beginners will need a plenty of tutorials to be able to use Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, but people who have knowledge in this field will find the perfect support for their works.

Creating a website is complex, and this program helps you to do it faster and professionally, but you have to know how to do it. The interface is split into three main modes: Design, Codes and Split. This way, you will have all well organized. In conclusion, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 has not too many improvements compared to its predecessor, and it is not easy for beginners, but is the perfect choice for people that already know how to design a webpage.

Pros

  • Lots of tools to design your web
  • Easy access to many tutorials

Cons

  • It is only a trial version
  • The full version is too much expensive
  • It is not easy for beginners

Feel the freedom to create your webpage with complete and useful tools

By Chris Larrage

On Thursday, April 3, 2014

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 includes some useful tools for creating any kind of website in a workflow very similar to what you can find in Photoshop or any Adobe software. I used this application for some basic projects I had in mind and if you have used some of Adobe programs before, you will find that Dreamweaver offers a similar working way and thanks to the templates it offers, it is much easier than just designing your website on your own.

The main aspect of this program is the tools and possibilities it grants. With so little knowledge before you start your project, and patience, you will be able to come with really great websites, maybe not as good as you will make learning advanced techniques, but they will be good enough.

I really recommend this application for those users that want to start learning how to create their own websites. It is good learning software for which you will be able to find any kind of help all over the Internet with tutorials and users’ guides. Give it a chance and learn along the time you will spend with it in case you want an application like this.

Pros

  • Very complete tools and functions
  • Use of templates for your personal projects
  • Compatible with WordPress and other web software

Cons

  • May be not so easy to use if you are not used to Adobe

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 is a web design tool that will make it so much easier for the creation of your own webpages, with a just a little bit of help. You can try the free version or get the full one, depending on your needs.

If you are fond of the Adobe software styl, you will find that, visually, this software is similar to its suite of applications. This is proof of Dreamweaver's philosophy -once you get to know and understand one program, you can easily get used to the rest of them because of the nature of its mechanics.

In this instance, Dreamweaver retains the same way of doing things. Even though you may know nothing about web design, any early difficulties encountered are soon overcome, so it may be difficult to master very quickly, but it is a worthy tool.

In this version, Adobe Dreamweaver allows you to compose your website

In the same way you create images on Adobe Photoshop you can create a webpage with Adobe Dreamweaver CS5. Its different tools are very convenient and practical for the creation of a website.

The application comes with some tutorials for the novice user in case the process of website creation initially proves to be too difficult. New users or beginners on this subject may want to complete the guides in order to gain more knowledge about web design.

For those who are experienced enough on this issue, Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 includes some interesting features, like BrowseLab, which will help you to see how your site will look like when it is finally uploaded to the Internet.

Full visual control

A great feature of this application is that the main purpose, website design, can be done visually without any prior knowledge of programming languages. Select a template, customize it with your own elements, and you will have created your own website. However, if you are fond of coding don’t worry, you can also develop your code with this editor too.

Since it is Adobe software, the inclusion of Flash components has been refined to work more easily with them. This way Dreamweaver becomes a pretty useful application since Flash elements are very often used to make websites visually more attractive.

Alternatives

There are some alternatives to Adobe Dreamweaver CS5, like Web Creator 5 Professional, that offers a good range of tools and which produce quality results. There are others like KompoZer which are open source and are kept constantly up to date by its community.
