Embarcadero Technologies HTML5 Builder


HTML5 Builder supports Web and mobile development via PHP and JavaScript. It enables designers to drag objects from a component palette and mix PHP and JavaScript code, says Josep Lluis Jorge, a developer at Steema Software. The tool also supports code-hinting and testing for mobile and Web deployments, he adds. "It will help substantially the PHP and JavaScript developer communities, saving time writing code and 'trial and error' processes."

HTML5 Builder has taken some getting used to, and startup has been an issue, he notes: "I find it a little slow to start, since it has to start some services, etc. Although I don't doubt that Embarcadero is working on the issue, and it may not be of the same importance to everyone."
