Coders: what's your text editor preference?

#1
Personally I use notepad++ for most things, and vim for a linux command-line editor. For the coders out there, what's your preference?

Notepad++, easily
I mod Paradox games. Click here to see my many adventures in doing that.

Microsoft notepad is actually unusable for PHP coding because it does something funky with the encoding or headers (whatever it is) that renders the file unexecutable. Thanks, microsoft Tongue

I'm so glad n++ exists.

When I used to code my minecraft mods, at the very beginning, I used notepad++. And, with the custom syntax highlighting, I can make it so n++ highlights syntax in eu3 scripts (for modding).

Syntax highlighting for a coder is an absolute must, especially for people like me who are speed readers. It saves a ton of time because it's so much easier to find what you need in code.

Notepad++ also has side-by side editing, which is nice for comparing two files. I have yet to need custom syntax highlighting, but I can imagine that will be useful at some point too.

I think I used openoffice at one point. I'm glad I'm past that phase now. Tongue

For an IDE, I also use NetBeans, for Java. For CPP, I use Code::Blocks or sometimes Visual Studio. HTML I just use NotepadPP.

Gedit in linux or just the built in one in the bash shell if I'm so inclined lol.

Definitely has to be brackets for me, love the UI and syntax highlighting for me is perfect, also the “live preview” feature is just amazing! When coding html/css it updates the live preview page instantly as you type the code! Great for Designing as you can literally sit there adding pixel by pixel and watch the changes happen instantly.

I've never heard of it before but brackets sounds super useful for webpage design  Tongue
