Web-app is an access point to unleash the incredible power of the cyber world. It behaves like a magnet to pull the virtual audience on a massive scale, but at the same time, if the web-app is lousy and out of context the audience would not stick to it for long.   It becomes the developer’s job to ensure that each piece falls in the line and make it appealing. There are some outstanding open-source tools that assist developers in building web-app effortlessly.  Before we take an overview of the tools to build web-app, there is one thing I would like to make clear between web-apps and website.  Though both accessed through the internet, there is a thin line between web-apps and website. Unlike the website, web-app has an interactive program where visitors or users can take action. For example, Facebook or Gmail, where users comment on the Facebook post or use gmails to send mail to friends. It requires users to perform an action, while the websites only give information about the product or service- BBC news or Netflix. There is no user action involved.  So, if you are designing a web-app, many things need to consider frameworks, design & usability, database design, development approach, etc.  For developing a web application, there are three core areas.  Backend language ( Java, PHP, etc.) - It controls how your web app works  Web front end ( HTML, CSS, Javascript) - It controls how your front-end, the look and feel of the web-app  DevOps- Deployment, and hosting of web-app   Webapp development is carried out in 5 steps,   Step 1-Ideation stage ( source an idea)  Step 2- Design stage ( Plan your workflow and sketch your web-app)  Step 3- Development stage ( Architect your database, develop your frontend and build your backend)  Step 4- Testing stage ( Test your web-app functionality)  Step 5- Launch stage ( host your web application)   For large businesses, there would be no issues, but small scale business faces a challenge to build web-app as they sustain on a thin budget and a small team. For them knowing some opensource tools is a big deal.  The opensource tool implementation mostly depends on the business requirements rather than small or large business operations. If you know the requirements, it is easy to sort out the tools.  List of opensource tools for building small web applications  1) Free Prototyping tools  ( Image source:justuxdesign.com)  Before you execute a web application idea in a real environment, you would like to know how it will look or behave. For that, there are many prototyping designing tools you would like to add to your list.   Wireflow  Pencil  Mockflow  Framebox  2) IDE- Netbeans, Eclipse, Intellij  For writing code, testing, and debugging, the developer uses IDE. It brings more productivity when a programmer chooses IDE over a text editor. IDE that contains all tools, including the compiler and plug-ins are preferred more than others. The choice of IDE is also based on features such as an integrated development environment that allows to work with more than one programming language or supports mobile-based applications. Below is a list of some well-known IDEs used in the industry.  4) Front-end/ Backend Framework- AngularJS, NodeJS, Laravel  AngularJS is a JavaScript (front-end) framework, and it is mostly used to build single-page web apps. It makes your code easy to test, maintain, and reuse. It can be used to develop web, mobile web, native mobile, and native desktop. Angular converts your templates into code that's highly optimized for today's JavaScript virtual machines. Some other well-known Javascript open-source framework includes node.js, react.js, and ember.js. You can also consider Bootstrap, which is the world’s most popular front-end component library. It is an open-source toolkit for developing front-end UI components with HTML, JS, and CSS. For the back-end, you can use a framework like Laravel for PHP, Apache-struts for Java, and Ruby on Rail for Ruby.  5) CSS Preprocessor - LESS  LESS is an open-source CSS preprocessor used for styling the website. LESS enhances the capability of CSS with the use of variables, mixins, operators, and functions. It helps web developers/designers to reduce repetitive coding. The other popular CSS includes Sass and Stylus.  6) CMS- Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress  CMS enables you to create, edit, publish and manage website pages and blogs on a single interface. Below mentioned are some of the best free and open-source CMS software for your small web-application. These CMS also comes with many other features such as web-traffic analysis, SEO plugins, open API, W3C compliance, mobile support, and so on.  7) DBMS- SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL  SQL, MySQL, and PostgreSQL are some of the popular free and opensource database management software. It handles your mission-critical data succinctly. SQL or MySQL is sufficient for your small web app; however, there are few more alternatives if you are keen about performance, speed, and scalability.  8) XAMPP- Local server for testing  XAMPP stands for cross-platform (X), Apache (A), MariaDB (M), PHP (P), and Perl (P). It is an open-source web server with all the tools and language support built-in to it. It is an all-in-one package, available for Windows, Linux and MAC systems. With XAMPP, you can build a test environment to test the web-application. The local server is cost-effective for small and medium-sized companies. Xampp is easy to install and use.  9) Free web hosting  There are many free web hosting sites, but it is NOT recommended. Their services are totally unreliable, and free hosts can remove the site from the server anytime. Also, there will be no customer support to answer your query. A premium host service or cloud hosting services may be expensive, but in the long run, it is worth it.  In case if you are interested in a mobile application that works on multiple platforms, here are some more free and opensource tools that could assist you in app development.  Other topics that might interest you,  The Best 8 Free and Open Source Bug Tracking Software Solutions  Top 7 Free and Open Source Marketing Automation Software

So, if you are designing a web-app, many things need to consider frameworks, design & usability, database design, development approach, etc. 

For developing a web application, there are three core areas. 

  • Backend language ( Java, PHP, etc.) - It controls how your web app works 
  • Web front end ( HTML, CSS, Javascript) - It controls how your front-end, the look and feel of the web-app 
  • DevOps- Deployment, and hosting of web-app  

Webapp development is carried out in 5 steps,  

  • Step 1-Ideation stage ( source an idea) 
  • Step 2- Design stage ( Plan your workflow and sketch your web-app) 
  • Step 3- Development stage ( Architect your database, develop your frontend and build your backend) 
  • Step 4- Testing stage ( Test your web-app functionality) 
  • Step 5- Launch stage ( host your web application)  

For large businesses, there would be no issues, but small scale business faces a challenge to build web-app as they sustain on a thin budget and a small team. For them knowing some opensource tools is a big deal.
