Everything You Need to Build Websites using Windows

Posted · Category: Tools

WebMatrix was built to streamline Web development and make it easy, whether you’re getting started or you just want to get things done. WebMatrix is a free Web development tool that installs in minutes and elegantly brings together a Web server, a database, and programming frameworks into a single, integrated experience. WebMatrix lets you code, test, and deploy both ASP.NET and PHP applications side by side.

WebMatrix connects you to a world of popular and free open-source Web applications, including DotNetNuke, Umbraco, WordPress, Joomla!, and more. Simply select an application from the built-in gallery, and WebMatrix handles the downloading and installation of your new Web site. The days of hand-editing configuration files and making sure you have all the right components are long gone. Customize your site using the built in code editor and make it yours.

  • Best web development tool I ever used.

  • Fantastic web development tool we are going to used it for building our clients sites Thanks for posting

  • Mosselman

    Is it compatible with PHP though?

  • Doug Roberts

    Can this work with just PHP+MySQL (i.e. not with ASP.NET Microsoft stuff)? More specifically, can I create a PHP application/website using WebMatrix and upload it to my regular Linux host, perhaps using CodeIgnitor?

  • Scott MacDonald

    I’m suprised to say that this actually looks quite good… Will have to take it for a spin a bit later.

    Maybe i’m missing something, but it looks like a standard MS lock-in.
    It works only with IIS and MSSQL.

    I would take Aptana over this one anytime.

    I just gave up!
    Impossible to download here.
    I’m behind a proxy, IE works fine, no firewall, but there is no way to install it.

    I had this problem before with the wonderful Microsoft download system.
