Hi, I'm Andy Heathershaw - a software developer specialising in commercial .NET and open-source PHP and Go applications.
As well as software development, I also enjoy and participate in DevOps and general system administration (server management) activities.
Most of these tools were standalone. For example: the base-64 encoder was run by a different company to the password generator. I found myself Google'ing for a tool each time I needed one because I could not remember where to go for each one.
I set out to make a suite of tools that had everything in one place, on an easy-to-remember address. And so Solid Tools for Developers (soliddevtools.com) was born.
Code named "toolbox" (because it was my developer toolbox), I released the first version in 2017 and have continued to add new tools since. I have many more in the pipeline.
I've written each of these free online debugging tools and so they all function and look the same. Any new tool I add will instantly be familiar to you if you've used any of the others.
