HTML Editing Environment

In order to work with Web Connection Web sites you'll need a good editor and specifically an HTML editing environment. You can use any editor or IDE of your choice, but we do have a couple of recommendations that we provide additional tooling for:
  • Visual Studio Community Edition (free) recommended
    Visual Studio Community Edition is a free version of Visual Studio Professional that can be used by most developers (except large corporations) for free. Web Connection provides a Visual Studio Extension that integrates Web Connection and FoxPro into your application workflow. We also provide many code snippets with a wc- prefix that facilitates embedding common Web Connection and HTML/Bootstrap constructs into your HTML pages.
  • Visual Studio Code (free)
    Visual Studio Code is a light weight, cross platform code editor that unlike Visual Studio is very small and very fast. It supports many common file types out of the box and it has an extensive eco-system of extensions that provide countless features on top of the base editor. VS Code is a joy to work in as the editor is very responsive and low friction and it works great with Web Connection Web sites. Web Connection provides a set of VS Code code snippets that you can get to by typing wc- in the editor andthat provide many common Web Connection and HTML/Bootstrap shortcuts.
