WordPress themes with WebMatrix

WordPress themes with WebMatrix gives us following advantages over other editors such as:

1. We can design and develop websites using ASP.NET, PHP, Node.js, or HTML5. They also support css3 and javascript library i.e JQuery

2.Easily install great applications with simple mouse clicks. These applications can be edited and published to the web much faster than any other ditor in the market

3. Publish to Azure without ever leaving WebMatrix.Publish button not only publishes website once, but we can edit as many times and get the updated site on Azure Cloud

4. It supports many open source applications beautifully

5. It is free.

6. One of the top most website hosting company, the Host-Gator also mentions the WebMatrix in the following way

WebMatrix is a free 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’s all-inclusive, simple and best of all free. Developing websites has never been easier.

2. Now run the application.The MS Web Platform installer has been launched.It displays WebMatrix and other tools. Click on WebMatrix and the setup will start.It will automatically install the prerequisites needed for WebMatrix. We also have the options to install them separately but our auto install is better option. They may include:

Microsoft SQL Server Compact 4.0 Tools
ASP.NET Web Pages
ASP.NET Web Pages Language Packs
