Best software for WP web development?

I need to redesign a wordpress website. I think, I know, that there are tools out there that will make my life easier in doing this - I know that the industry has matured since I last looked into this and don’t even remember what the options were when I last looked… I want to stay in WP because of all the parts that are connected (back end mailing list/credit card processing/history of purchases etc. ) so no squarespace. Any recommendations? (Yes I’ll ask on WP board as well but thought to ask here.)


I think MAMP is generally the first step for people wanting to do WordPress on a Mac, assuming you want to do redesign locally before uploading it to the server.

That’s about the extent of my WordPress knowledge, however.

More information is needed here. What kind of redesign do you need to do? UI, code,…? Are you looking for a code editor, an IDE, an application to edit graphics, or a local environment (like MAMP mentioned in the previous post)?
