We can use Visual Studio (VS) code for coding..It is easy to type on vs code than notepad

There's so many softwares you can use for coding such as text editor like vim, vscode, atom, sublime text, notepad++, and etc. vscode is good but if you don't have enough storage maybe don't use it. If you want lightweight use sublime text, atom, or notepad++ but if you are a keyboard warrior use vim and it is lightweight you can configure vim so you can do what you want. Sorry if my English is not good.

There are more code editors, html editors, text editors, and Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) than you can point a mouse at. Unless you have a reasonably well specified computer I would suggest that you stay away from heavyweight IDEs and advanced text editors. The next step up from Windows Notepad, which is a simple text editor, would be Notepad++. As it's name suggests it is an improvement over Windows Notepad. It is very lightweight and easy to learn. The last thing you need is to be struggling to use a complicated editor or IDE while learning to code. As you learn more about programming you can move on to something more advanced. https://notepad-plus-plus.org/ I still use Windows Notepad for quick edits of batch files and other short scripts. I also use a number of different editors and IDEs depending on what I am working on. Don't feel that you must stay with one product.

You can use CODEPEN website for coding practice with live results..... you can find projects there too.....

Eashan Morajkar , official one? lol Now you have to define "official"... The original Rust compiler was written largely in OCaml. When current, "official" compiler is written in mostly c. This compiler might be "official" but its definitely not original one.... But even though, since when do we have to use only "official" compilers?

You can use ... Vs code codesandbox freecodecamp Replit Sololearn also

VS Code Sublime text Nursphere Atom Anaconda Virtual Studio Enterprise

Yes, you can use any text editor or IDE for programming, but the compiler used shoud be the same

+1

And as you have used the "html" tag, you dont need a compiler but a good browser to show your code

Bishop Francis , actually you are one of a few people I know who uses just a notepad for coding, usually people use either more interactive text editors or proper IDEs. Eashan Morajkar , regarding your answer, why the compiler should be the same? Nearly every programming language has multiple, different compilers. e. g. For c++ 2 main compilers are mngw and g++....

Aleksei Radchenkov python only has one official compiler, rust, etc. c++ needs third party compilers

+1

We should use compilers that are stable, maintained and show mostly the same output on different platforms

+1

Eashan Morajkar , rust has multiple compilers, it's just one of them is the most common one. And so does python... And technically any compiler is third-party, as it is just a program written in other language to interpret another language.

But its the official one

I mentioned above to use any compiler that is stable,maintained and shows mostly the same output on different platforms

No! Notepad is the only one text editor comes preinstalled with windows but you can install other for better development experience. For example., Sublime Text, VSCode and atom etc.

Vs code, pycharm, Jupiter, spyder, idle

You can use different IDE's, for example, the smallest of them all and the best of them is Vs code

You can use VS code, Sublime text, Atom or Notepad++

Pycharm and Visual Studio it's good code editors (notepad)
