Microsoft Webmatrix : A New Web Development Tool

Yeah! WebMatrix is a brand new web development tool from Microsoft that includes everything you need for website development. Start from open source web applications, built-in web templates or just start writing code yourself. It is all-inclusive, simple and best of all free. Developing websites has never been easier.

Microsoft Webmatrix
Create your website
To get started creating websites, just download and install WebMatrix using the Microsoft Web Platform Installer. You will be up and running less than 5 minutes! Once WebMatrix is installed, we make it simple to get and install the latest version of your favorite free web applications such as WordPress, Joomla!, DotNetNuke and Orchard.

Customize your website
Once you are up and running, you will find that WebMatrix provides all the tools features you will need in a single unified interface. Say good-bye to switching between multiple applications just to perform common web development tasks. With WebMatrix, you are always just a click away from easily editing your files, managing your database and modifying your server settings.

Publish your website
When you are ready, WebMatrix provides a no-hassle way to show the world your website. Just access our hosting gallery from WebMatrix and you will find a hosting provider that is guaranteed to run your site smoothly while also allowing you to publish directly from WebMatrix.

The top features you will love
WebMatrix was built to streamline Web development and make it easy, whether you are getting started or you just want to get things done. It lets you focus on what is important — your Web site.

01. Small, but complete package
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.

02. Grows with you
With WebMatrix on your desktop, you are using the same powerful Web server, database engine, and frameworks that your Web site on the internet uses. This ensures that your transition from development to production is smooth and seamless.

When you are ready, WebMatrix integrates Visual Studio into your workflow. Connect to Visual Studio to take advantage of powerful features such as debugging and profiling. And when you are ready for a high-volume relational database server, move your database and data from SQL Server Compact to SQL Server with just a click of the mouse.

03. Site publishing
With WebMatrix you can find the perfect home for your Web site. Use WebMatrix to find a Web host that fits your requirements and use the built-in publishing support for FTP, FTPS, and WebDeploy to ensure that your files, databases, and settings arrive intact on the web.

04. Database made simple
Using a database has never been easier! WebMatrix includes a small, embedded database called SQL Server Compact that can live with your Web site code and content. Use it to start building your next Web site, and when you are ready to publish, just copy the database file from your computer to any Web server and it will run— no extra installation required. Or you can easily migrate the database and data to SQL Server when you are ready for high-volume traffic.

05. Elegant interface, simple experience
WebMatrix integrates a rich code editor, a database editor, Web server management, Search Engine Optimization, FTP publishing, and more, WebMatrix provides a fresh, new, Web site development experience that bridges all the key components you need to create, run, and deploy a Web site.

06. More than "Hello, World"
Want to display a Twitter feed? Need to show a video? Code helpers make common tasks easy to do with just a simple tag in your HTML.

07. Start > Open Source
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.

08. Simple to code
WebMatrix is the easiest way to learn standards-based Web development and makes it simple to build and publish Web sites on the internet. Start with HTML, CSS and JavaScript and then seamlessly connect to a database or add in dynamic server code using the new ‘Razor’ syntax for ASP.NET Web pages. Your code is easy to read, simple to learn, short to write and works with any text editor. Use built-in helper functions to connect to a database, display a Twitter feed, or embed a video. And with a seamless path to ASP.NET MVC it is now easier than ever to create powerful ASP.NET Web applications.

09. Hints when you need it most
WebMatrix not only colorizes everything including file tabs and code to make things quick to find, it also supports tag completion and hinting for standard HTML and CSS markup making it easier and faster for you to write code.

10. Desktop or server, it is all the same
WebMatrix uses the same powerful Web server, database engine, and frameworks environment that will run your Web site on the Internet, which makes the transition from development to product seamless.

11. Tightly knit, fully integrated
WebMatrix integrates with IIS Express and is tightly linked with the Web server components that run your site. Directly monitor real-time Web requests and responses to track down problems right at the source. Missing an image? You will instantly see why and where, and WebMatrix will take you directly to the file to fix the problem.

12. Optimize for search
Run an SEO report and find how to make your site more visible to search engines. WebMatrix takes the secrets out of search engine optimization, provides clear guidance on how to make your site better, and even offers to take you right to the file in your site you need to fix.
