Over years ( I built my first website in 1998 ) I have encountered and tried many tools, frameworks and technologies, but if I had to point to my most tried and tested set of tools, it would be what is commonly known as the LAMP stack. LAMP stands for Linux (in my case it has been Debian GNU/Linux for well over 20 years now), Apache, MySQL and PHP. These days I develop stuff with OOP MVC Web frameworks like CodeIgniter 4 ( earlier also CodeIgniter 3 and Kohana ).
Most recently I have also tried a bit of Python, mostly Django and Flask Web frameworks, as well as have been tinkering with MERN stack (MongoDB, Express, React, Node.js).
On the frontend side jQuery and Bootstrap 4 have been my tools of choice for many years. However, recently I have been investing more and more time into React, Bootstrap 5 and Material UI.
Here is a Frontend/Backend breakdown of technologies I develop with.
