Text Editors For Code – 2018

 

Hello, everyone welcomes back to new post in developer series. Today I will be writing about the most basic thing for code, the text editors where you write the code. Whatever language you use, whatever you write, you always need to write. So code editors are required to write and edit code and display them beautifully.

You will be thinking of why I am focusing on editors, you also have ms-word and more to write so why I said just editors. The answer is Ms-word or Libre- Office, whatever we use apply style formatting, auto correction and a lot of grammar rules. They are good for writing editorials, reports or any other format of documentation. 

But for writing code, we need simple code editor that allows us to write the code without modifying the language or syntax.

So here I will tell about some Code editors :

1. Notepad 

 

Notepad Text Editor

Notepad is a basic text editor that allows writing code. Everyone knows about this and may have used by you also. You can use this to write a simple, basic code without any other functionality. It is useful and good for only writing a few lines of code or a single page. We can use Notepad for writing scripting languages that generally don’t need to be compiled but run directly. We can directly write and run languages like  HTML, CSS, Perl and more.

 

2. Notepad ++

Notepad++ text Editor

Notepad++ is the extended version of Notepad and provides additional functionalities like code styling, code completion, and plugins to extend the editor functions. It is good for writing simple projects like static web pages, shell scripting, PHP, Python and more. I prefer this over notepad as it provides more features compared to the notepad that only provides writing code. The functionalities can be extended using plugins available over the internet, that helps writing code faster and analyze it. It highlights code errors and indicates if brackets or symbols are missing from syntax.
