- Theory of what's going on behind the scenes of the web
- Some tools that *I* 100% need, YMMV
Tools you absolutely will 100% need
Edit Text files (HTML) in a Text Editor
IF YOU DONT KNOW: Jedit
The standard? "text/html"
Transfer those files to "Torch", our webserver
IF YOU DON'T KNOW - Filezilla
The standards? "FTP / SFTP"
(SFTP = SSH + FTP)
View and Preview those files
IF YOU DONT KNOW - Firefox
Lets talk about Files (and linux)
You don't have to be able to do ANY of the following command line stuff..
.. but I feel as if it will help in the long run.
Everything In Linux is a File
Not just C:
The Linux Filesystem
The Unix Way(s)
(because everything is a file)
Lots of SMALL programs and COMMAND LINE interaction
Text + Computer ready annotation:
HTML - HyperText Markup Language
strongly related to
XML - eXtensible Markup Language
Tools you will NOT need, but Linux admins do
Virtualization and Containerization
For here, simple: VirtualBox
There is also Hyper-V, VMWare, etc
Also Emulations YAY OLD GAMES
Docker, Rocket, LXC
COMPATIBILITY LAYERING (e.g. Wine/Proton on Linux)
Runs THEIR programs without a "system"
Aka, connecting to another computer and talking to it.
Tools that I personally can't live without, but are not (yet) canon
