Writing code day in and day out can become overwhelming and tedious at times. That’s why I change up my text editors from time to time when writing code, it breaks up the monotony and keeps me on my toes. And some text editors are better for writing specific type of programming language. Below is a list of some my favorite text editors:
1.) Notepad++: Is a free source code editor which supports several programming languages running under the MS Windows environment. Features I enjoy about Notepad ++ are Auto-completion: Word completion, Function completion and Function parameters hint. Did I mention that it’s FREE?
2.) Sublime Text: Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose. I like using sublime for making quick and dirty changes and even for more complex coding because of its distraction free mode. In addition no matter if I use it on Windows Mac OS X – I feel like I get the same user experience. This is a great editor for a great price that allows full customization.
3.) Adobe Dreamweaver: Dreamweaver is a proprietary web development application developed by Adobe Systems (originally Macromedia back in the day). Now some developers might say this text editor is child’s play – but I think its a pretty powerful text editor/IDE. One of the great features in Dreamweaver is the design view, although not always fully accurate as how it will render in a browser, it’s great for troubleshooting large amounts of HTML with content.
