Boy I’ve been indulging in client-side editing more than ever. I can see it becoming an important development tool for me and other developers. A friend of mine introduced me to ShiftEdit, which allows for remote connection over ftp. Source code editing, has never been easier. Theirs even an option to link a db, I wouldn’t suggest it, but the option is there.
Microsoft’s Sharepoint is another good one. It has enough punch to make any backend application seem incredible. It’s client-side editing at its finest and it’s taking over. I can see more cloud based dev tools come fourth in the coming years as the cloud continues to prove positive. HTML5 is making these features readily available for those even the smallest devices. I’m excited to see where it all goes and how I can participate in all of it.
