January ’15: Top Developer Tools and Services

Now that I'm increasing the amount of blogs that I write I want to start giving credit to stuff that I use every day.

These aren't always going to be programming or web related. Many of them are to do with organisation and learning. I may even throw in some fun stuff, too!


First off the bat: Mailcatcher. A Ruby gem for testing emails on your local machine. It works by catching the emails sent through a local SMTP server and comes with a simple-but-awesome GUI for previewing your emails.

As a bonus it already comes installed with PuPHPet which I use to set up my PHP stacks.

If you don’t use PHP or PuPHPet it’s still a breeze to install. So if you’re a developer that makes applications with emails I really recommend you give it a shot.
