9 Ways to Instantly Code Faster

9 Ways to Instantly Code Faster  

1. Zen Coding  

Zen Coding is an editor plugin for high-speed HTML, XML, XSL (or any other structured code format) coding and editing. The core of this plugin is a powerful abbreviation engine which allows you to expand expressions—similar to CSS selectors—into HTML code.” 

2. Split Windows 


3. Embrace Social Coding 

 4. Code Management Tools  (Github, Snipplr, and Forrst )

While many editors offer an integrated snippets utility, I’d recommend embracing a third party tool instead. This way, your snippets aren’t limited to a single editor.

5. Choose a Proper Editor 

Your decision will largely be dependent upon:

  • Which languages you code in
  • Your OS
  • The type of UI you prefer
  • Comfort with the command line (or lack of)

 6. Use Bundles 

7. Use LESS.js


8. Prototype Early with Firebug 


9. Don’t Reinvent the Wheel

Coding each new project from scratch is incredibly time consuming.

  1. HTML5 Boilerplate

  2. CodeIgniter (PHP Framework)

  3. 960 (CSS Framework)

  4. jQuery (JavaScript Library)
