Don’t be afraid to pay for them. Here are some must-have tools:
Code Linter to keep you from making mistakes & make your code consistent.
Code Snippets & Generators because having to write boilerplate code is boring, time-consuming, inefficient & not why people pay you.
Continuous Build & Deployment tools. You should be able to jump on a new project & spin up a development environment with a single command. You should equally be able to push to a testing server with a single command.
