We use a number of development tools in Agile Collective. These are largely command line or web based, although most of us use a graphical IDE when writing and debugging code.
When developing, installation of the following tools is entirely optional. At a mimimum you will need to have followed the [development environment set up](environment/index.md documentation.
After that you may want to install some other tools if you prefer to work in your host machine, but this is not advised. The preferred method is to use the tools provided by the Lando containers.
