    $\begingroup$ Yes, precisely because you can grow the list ad infinitum I wanted you to narrow the question. In general those open ended questions don't work well in the StackExchange format because they don't have an answerable with a correct answer. And tend to results in a list of software, that although interesting and useful it might fit better for a blog or other type of resources. That's why I asked if you have some problem with any of these tools. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The problem is that, presumably, all of these are "state of the art", so choosing one will be largely a question of opinion. Therefore, this is a very interesting discussion, but not really something that can be given a definitive answer of the sort that the Stack Exchange model requires. $\endgroup$
