One of the latest focuses in the market, being deployed to a
great extent among the community of American developers, is
the Python programming language, which allows projects to be
carried out swiftly and in a versatile way.
BeeWare is more than just a tool; in fact it is a
toolbox to help develop and debug software in
Python. The big difference between BeeWare and
an IDE (integrated development environment) is
that each tool in that box can be used
independently from each other. Each can be used
to carry out small tasks and all can be
simultaneously used separately to implement large
projects in Python.
The tools in that box of services are:
This is a graphical tool for
running unit tests. The tool does
not offer many details of the
execution while the suite is
underway and it is not possible
to start looking for faults until
execution is complete. This
results in Cricket not being a
great tool for identifying patterns
of faults in these unit tests or for
rerunning failed tests. Cricket
supports Django, a framework of
open source code that is written
in Python and used to develop
web applications faster.
This is a tool for debugging
code errors. The old debuggers
were good for their integrated
development environments and
being able to debug errors
visually during execution. The
Python debugging model
contains appealing debugging
methods. It also has a graphical
interface that lets you navigate
the code to correct errors.
This is a graphical interface that
helps developers visualize the
results of coverage of tests
returned by, a tool
that works to measure coverage
of program code in Python.
Such actions serve to measure
the effectiveness of tests,
separately showing which parts
of the code are worked by
testing and which are not.
BeeWare also has a number of libraries for projects in Python:
A package of native tools for
each system, made in Python
that can be used for desktops
and mobiles.
A template that allows us to
develop applications in Python
but implement them in iOS.
A template to implement
Python code in Android.
This is a collection of tools to
establish relationships between
the Python programming
environment and others.
Pure implementation in Python of the
algorithm of solutions of limitations of
Cassowary (algorithm that has been
used within Mac OS and iOS since 2011.
BOA Constructor
Python developers have this integrated development environment (IDE) with a built-in
graphical user interface (GUI) for wxPython. This tool includes an object inspector,
inheritance hierarchies, a particularly good debugger and integrated help. Obviously, it is
written in Python.
The user interface consists of a set of separate tools used to create and debug applications
developed with Python:
This tool allows developers to access objects
such as buttons, text boxes, frames and create
packages and modules for our applications.
This is the first step to generating a new
development for Python.
this is the part of BOA Constructor where
developers can access the source code of the
application they are creating. You can correct
errors and run the application to identify them in
the editor.
There is an interesting tutorial on the web which
can serve as a guideline for beginners.
Objects can be accessed through
this tool
This allows you to browse and
review data items.
Integrated development
environments for Python:

For example, in this video one of the developers of
JetBrains designs a clone of the Pinterest social
network with tools from the PyCharm integrated
development environment.
This is a wxWidgets user graphical interface written in Python, but that can generate source code for other
programming languages such as C++, Lisp or Perl. wxGlade is not an integrated development environment
with all the tools to develop in Python, it is just a designer that lets you view the widgets created.

Frameworks for HTML5
Is the Twitter framework for responsive and adaptive website design and development in HTML, CSS and
JavaScript. Bootstrap is a widely-used framework among today's front-end developers.
This framework is backed by Twitter, so it is
unlikely to become obsolete.
Although it only has limited support for HTML5
and CSS3, are compatible with current browsers.
It is open source and shared on GitHub. This
makes it special as it is used and continuously
improved by many developers.
It makes working with JavaScript much easier:
the developer doesn't need to get programming:
many components are available allowing
implementation of special resources with no
need for coding. And that is a major advantage!
All of these components are based on jQuery.
Enables us to add new functionality to the user
interface: from a carousel effect in the site
header to the creation of groups of buttons and
alerts. And its enormous popularity means that
more and more third-party plugins are becoming
available to automate much of this functionality.
Bootstrap uses the LESS dynamic stylesheet.
It also offers comprehensive documentation: if
you have a project or a doubt, or need to solve a
difficult situation, documentation and tutorials are
available to help.
This is the other major HTML5 framework. Its key features include:
Support for old browsers. HTML5 Boilerplate
offers a feature detection library known as
Modernizr. This can determine whether the
user's browser supports HTML5 and CSS3. If it
doesn't, an additional function is loaded enabling
old browsers to load all site elements.
Improved load times. With the increasing
consumption of information on mobile devices,
website load times are becoming an essential
competitive tool. In HTML5 Boilerplate, all
scripts elements are at the end of the page,
meaning that display of the site's key elements is
not delayed by slow loading. This affects almost
all elements, including the usual Google
Analytics tracking code.
Server-side optimization: HTML5 Boilerplate's
.htaccess folder enables a more efficient cache
and allows us to send our websites compressed
as GZIP, together with images and JavaScript
elements, optimizing site performance and
reducing load times.
Is a framework for creating native mobile
applications in HTML5. This framework uses CSS3
transitions to optimize site performance on mobile
devices, enabling the developer to design
carousels with flickable.js. The user interface
design is really simple, listing the pre-defined
components included in the framework.

03. JAVA03.
Apache Maven
Apache Maven is a tool for managing and
designing projects in Java. This framework was
created in 2002 by Jason Van Zyl, from
Sonatype. Maven uses a Project Object Model
(POM), an XML file that is the basic work unit in
Maven. This file contains information on the
project and details of the configuration used by
the framework: from the list and configuration of
the plugins used, to the dependencies.

The programming language PHP is one of the most popular
options with developers for creating dynamic web projects
and applications. Scripts are executed on the server, it's
secure, and it has a short learning curve.
05. PHP
PHP is one of the most widely used programming languages for developing web projects,
mainly because of its enormous penetration in both web servers and operating systems. It's
a robust solution and completely free of charge. Some of the greatest players on the
Internet, like Wikipedia and Yahoo, use PHP for their sites, as do leading content editors like
Wordpress and Drupal. And PHP is also used, for example, by the well-known Apache
There are several reasons why PHP is so popular:
It's a language for developing dynamic web
applications from the data stored in a database.
The learning curve is very short because PHP
developers have simplified its structure.
It works seamlessly with open-source relational
databases like MySQL, another solution widely
used by developers.
It supports object oriented programming.
PHP scripts are executed on the server, so no
one can access them from a browser. That
means greater security.
Its enormous popularity has led to a vast array of useful tools for PHP developers, ranging
from frameworks to libraries.
The use of a good framework can help developers save time and achieve better results:
quality scripts, scalable projects, fast and robust web applications... Using a framework
means that developers can store scripts in folders, access libraries and functions that will
enrich the final project, and increase security.
PHP professionals can choose from a long list of development frameworks.
A large community with extensive documentation
is usually one of the things that developers look for
when choosing a tool because it means they have
several options if they make a mistake or reach a
dead end. That's why Laravel is such a popular
framework with PHP developers.
These are the main features:
It supports RESTful.
It requires the installation of Composer, the tool
for administering dependencies in PHP. This is
useful because once the libraries for the project
being developed have been declared, no further
action is required from the developer.
It follows the MVC (Model-View-Controller)
pattern, which has two important advantages:
greater security, and complete separation of the
application logic from the user interface.
It supports caching.
Released in 2011 as an open source framework
for developing PHP web projects, it was created by
Taylor Otwell. The latest version is 5.1. Like most
frameworks, Laravel has the usual basics: routes,
models, templates, views and controllers. It also
has its own template engine, called Blade.
Like Laravel, CodeIgniter has a great community
behind it feeding it with ample documentation.
It's a simple but high performance development
framework with some interesting features:
It works with most environments and servers.
It follows the MVC pattern.
Separation between the framework core and
the project script.
Flexible development framework: developers
can follow its coding rules or use their own.
This means that there is no need to learn the
framework structure because it can be
changed. It supports the use of external
Symfony is a framework for developing web
applications using the Model-View-Controller pattern.
It was created by the company SensioLabs in 2005
and is distributed under the MIT open source license.
Its main features are as follows:
The database management system can be
changed at any time during
development, which is a major advantage.
Completely developed in PHP, it can run on UNIX and
Windows platforms and is compatible with most of
the common database management systems:
MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, etc.
It uses object oriented programming.
It follows Model-View-Controller patterns.
It's a development framework that greatly
facilitates interoperability.
It has its own user-friendly template
engine (Twig).
It has a cache system based on HTTP
which enhances the performance of
applications developed with Symfony.
PHP libraries

with a syntax very similar. There
is ample documentation
for its projects and the source
code is full of explanations.
A modular, scalable and
structured PHP library. There
is a training manual
(containing several chapters
with technical information) to
get you started as well as
documentation to use it.
Mink is a very popular library
with PHP developers because it
lets them test how their web
applications interact with the
browser to check that they
work properly. Mink supports
the following frameworks:
PHPUnit, Behat and Symfony2.
Developers who know how to
program in PHP will find the
PHP-CPP library very easy to
use with variables, functions,
objects and exceptions. And
they can also use all the added
advantages provided by C++,
such as arguments and
asynchronous programming.
Hoa provides users with the
ability to create their own
libraries, which means that
the script can be reutilized
and shared. The idea is that
any programmer can take a
library developed by another
user and adapt it to the needs
of his or her own application
with its features and tools.
Pattern Lab is a framework for developing
the front end of web projects and
applications. It allows developers and
designers to make decisions about
templates and shows different alternatives
during the development process. Designs
can also be tested in browsers.
The tool facilitates front end design testing
in small elements like buttons and labels for
forms or complete templates with all their
design components (logo, navigation, etc.).
Guzzle is a special framework comprising all
the necessary tools for creating a client for
REST services like Twitter or GitHub, a
service for defining API inputs and outputs,
high performance batch processing for
sending large numbers of requests, etc.
It also eliminates redundancy in the creation
of web service clients, and has caching
mechanisms for the parallel execution of
responses and queries.
