Development Tools That You Need


Local Server - Your desktop/laptop is the best place for custom development of WordPress themes. You will need to turn your computer into a local server and create a virtual web server (Apache, MySQL and PHP), which can easily be done by installing WordPress into your computer. You will not need to install these server separately and will be able to do that using the XAMP (for Windows) and MAMP (for Macintosh).


WordPress – Although this might seem too obvious, you will need to download and install the latest version of WordPress into your workstation. This needs to be installed into your local test server from where you will be testing your theme. The installation procedure of XAMP and MAMP in your local test server is a bit different and you need to take care of that.


Dummy Content –You will need dummy content to create a theme.  Go to the admin panel of WordPress and navigate to Tools > Import and choose WordPress from the list of options of WXR post data file. You can choose among The Theme Development Checklist test data, The Sandbox Dummy Content or WPCandy Sample Content.


Text Editor – Most developers prefer to use special graphics software for creating WordPress themes. You can try Notepad or Notepad++ if you are developing on Windows while Mac users can try Smultron.


Browser – You can use any browser for WordPress development but Mozilla Firefox is the most recommended one. The add-ons, which make Firefox the most, preferred choice of WordPress developers around the world. The Web Developer toolbar, which gives you a whole host of options for inspecting and debugging your code, and Firebug, which lets you, inspect each element in your theme right up till the code.
