Hey guys,

 

so I'm currently in a HTML \ CSS class here at my school.

 

I was wondering what programs everyone uses for editing their code for websites.  I personally like dreamweaver, my class is based around Aptana studio 3.

 

What does everyone prefer? Notepad ++?

Dreanweaver is the worst you can use, it's drag and drop gui adds a lot of garbage code and it's detrimental to your learning since you won't even know how it did those things.

 

Apanta is fine, but it's an IDE, you need to learn the difference between a text editor and an IDE, the most common text editors are notepad++, atom and sublime text.

 

Still it depends on what language you are coding. Apanta is fine if you are only going to do html/css for now.

I prefer Notepad++. I like the layout of Microsoft Visual Studio, but it's laggy as hell. Usually I'm content with Notepad++. Haven't had much experience with others.

Text Editing, I prefer Notepad++ or Atom, depending on how I am feeling.  For our website though, I’ve recently switched to CodeLobster.  It has an outdated UI, but frequent feature updates and once you get it configured, it’s the most convenient PHP/JS/HTML/CSS editor I have ever used.

Notepad++ is where it's at.

If we're talking a straight text editor, I prefer VIM.  If we're talking an IDE then I like Visual Studio Code.
