    Question [New Member] Which HTML editor to use?


    Hey folks.

    I've begun dabbling in web development (I'm using HTML/CSS, and hopefully will begin using JavaScript in the future) and have just been using "NotePad" to do my editing.

    I know that there are a large number of text-editors out there, but I'm looking for recommendations.

    Are there a few highly popular free ones? What are you all using?

    Any information helps!

    I use Notepad++ for all of the programming that I do except C++, for which I use Visual Studio.

    I'm very much a fan of Komodo Edit. It indicates errors in your code and you can preview using an in-built browser. The auto-completion is excellent as well.

    There are many great text editors for HTML and CSS. I personally use notepad++, but other than that I have used multiple other ones. Such as Komodo Edit, Crimson Edit, Topstyle 4, and others. The "best" editor, is up to you really. But overall, I would go with either Notepad++ which is completely free, or TopStyle 4, it is around 80 dollars for a single license or you can download the free version.

    Hey!

    I do agree with you. I am also suggest Komodo Edit. It is very easy to use.

    Hey CuriosScion, from one new user to another - I too use Notepad++ for a lot of my text editing; but for web dev I've been using CodeLobster. It's a PHP editor that allows selection of HTML, CSS, PHP and a slew of others. It sells for about $50 ( I think ) but they also have a free version which doesn't support all its plugins.
    It may be worth a look ...

    Eclipse and NotePad++


    NotePad++ is very much light weight but do not have as much features as Eclipse.. For heavy work I use eclipse. But for simple edits and modifications, I use NotePad++

    I personally use Aptana Studio. It's got good features, though I don't know how intuitive it would be for a new programmer. It's also slow as molasses at times, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices if you want a good bit of software.

    I also used Dreamweaver for a long time and still like it a lot, but it's very expensive, so I definitely would not recommend it for those looking for free software.
