I'm working on an article for beginners about web development software. I'd like to include some recommendations for code editors clients to try. What is your favourite code editor and why? Or do you use multiple tools for different purposes?

Good responses may be quoted in the article! Keep in mind that this article will be targeted to complete beginners. What would you recommend to someone just starting out?

Notepad++ if I'm on Windows, Bluefish if I'm on GNU/Linux.

They are both beginner friendly but still have the capacity for more advanced functions as well. For me, syntax highlighting is a must.

For those just beginning, and not wanting to pay for anything, NotePad++ does some really good syntax highlighting for many languages (HTML,JS,CSS,etc). I forget if it has features to directly FTP, if not, or if you want a good stand alone FTP client, Filezilla is very good.

For those looking to pay for a little more, what I started out on was Ultra Edit, IMO a little better organized that NotePad++ and does have the ability to directly FTP right in it.

Now advance to where you want things like code suggesting (you start typing, it gives you a list) and auto closing tabs, here you usually have to pay. Once you get used to it though, it does make you a lot more faster and less prone to mistakes. Also for beginners, having code suggestions can help you learn the right way to do something or attributes/styles.

For those who will pay premium for a do it all, Dreamweaver, but get used to it in Code mode, not WYSIWYG mode. It has very good site management, and well, it is set up for web sites. The trial version will probably do you well to determine if you like it.

Now for coding purposes as PHP, a good premium program is NuSphere PhpEd. My old choice was Zend Studio, but after version 5, they changed it to run on Eclipse, and well, the features (insert polite way to say "went to the crapper"). I use PhpEd for editing pretty much all files.

Notepad++ when I'm on Windows. I have a plugin that allows for file browsing within the program, but I can't remember the plugin name at the moment.

In Ubuntu, I used to use Bluefish, but ever since I switched to a dark theme, I started to use gedit with a whole bunch of plugins.

I personally don't use any web designing softwares, because the HTML coding is a mess and not W3 compliant which makes it hard for browsers to recognize the HTML coding. I only use notepad to program raw HTML code that's W3 compliant?

Hi!
I utilize Emacs. Some time it feels truly strange at first it really grows on you. I utilize AUCTeX for editing LaTeX code, and the various programming specific modes for coding.
I also utilize Vim for small tasks like editing configure files, and recently tried using it for writing some c programs, but I think Emacs “understands” the code on a completely different level.
Thank You.

It probably depends on the beginner and what they are trying to get out of their coding.

As a hobbyist I learned the basics using Notepad. (Not Notepad + + which is mentioned here, just the free app that comes with windows). It does force good structure. But quickly becomes difficult to read.

That was useful and taught me how it all hangs together.

I now use "CoffeeCup" HTML editor, which works for me. I really couldn't justify the cost of Dreamweaver, though possibly should look at it - I have copies of Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom which integrate with it, I believe.

{Sigh - I gave in and got Dreamweaver. The trouble is that I don't want to learn that just now, whilst in the middle of a project - so I've decided that the answer is Excel, which I do know. (It's single user and mathematical, so Dreamweaver with HTML / XML / Javascript mix will have to wait!)

For beginners, they must use notepad why because everything you need, you will write code for that, just Turbo 3.0, Notepad is best for beginners and intermediate level because there is no extra help for developers, and after Intermediate level they can use PHP 5, Dream viewer.

Most of my work now is on Drupal sites, aside from css and some coding it has it's own editor(s). But lots of time the code gets MORKED up and then hand coding is needed. For this I use HTMLkit. It's great for other things too. There is only one more feature that I would like it to have. I once used an editor that could search not only the document that was being edited but could search an entire folder of php, html or other documents at one time. Really handy when troubleshooting scripts. Does anyone know of a good editor that does that?

So for all the Dreamweaver users, who all can admit they use properly licensed copies (which means, if you are using it to make sites for money, you are not using academic license)?

I have owned DW 4, DW MX, DW MX 2004, DW 8, DW CS4 (license from account with 1&1 hosting) and now DW CS6 as part of my jumping ship from CorelDraw/PhotoPaint to Adobe Master Suite

I still use PhpED 7 for most of my programming, the features just make my work so much faster since I'm programming 6+ hours a day, especially on larger projects and when going back and forth between several a day.

Dreamweaver was my most favorite code editor but however it always made my system slow. The 2nd editor which I am now using is "Brackets" which is much more fast than Dreamweaver. It is opensource software with fast and accurate builtin plugins.

I'm surprised to see that many Notepad++, but so few Sublime recommendations. My favorite editor for all scripting/markup languages is Sublime.

For more complex languages I prefer Visual Studio or IntelliJ.

hi, i am new to the forum. i did coding at university but i will be honest, i forgot most of it.
my question is, what is the main difference between javascript C++ when it comes to coding? or are the fundamentals still the same.

They are very much different. C++ is strongly typed, Javascript the opposite. Javascript is more flexible, syntax is different etc.
