This post is meant to be updated with useful tools for software development. I will only classify the tool and post a link to it, this post will be helpful for someone just starting out in devOps
- Postman: allows to share, test, document & monitor APIs.
- Visual Studio: Windows software development IDE (C#/WPF)
Must have tools
- Git (or Github Desktop or Git for Windows)
- Linux terminal/bash (available on any Mac/Linux machine, for Windows download Git for Windows linked above)
If you have installed Github Desktop on Windows, you may have noticed that the application itself comes with a “Git Shell” which is basically a linux terminal emulator running on windows and its very useful for developers or linux users that are familiar with bash.
The problem I recently encountered was trying to find the executable PATH of the git-bash.exe so that I can configure my Webstorm IDE to use it. All the documentation on the internet seems to point to C:/Program Files/Git folder but Github may have changed this as in the latest release I downloaded (v 184.108.40.206) the files reside elsewhere and I will share where to find them.

If you are running Webstorm IDE (my version as of writing is 2016.3.2) and you are trying to ‘install from disk’ the Golang plugin and get this error:
You may have tried to upload a .zip version 0.171.XXX and got this error. To fix it:
- Download plugin version (0.13.xxx) just download the latest one that begins with 0.13 (disregard the top of the list that has a version 0.171.xx as they are incompatible with Webstorm.
- Go-0.13.1924.zip is the latest one as of writing.
- After loading the .zip file into the program it should ask to restart Webstorm.
- You should now have successfully installed the Golang plugin on Webstorm IDE… confirm by going to Settings > Plugins
That’s all folks 🙂
