Best text editor

What is your fave text editor and why? I have started using brackets and I like it but wondered about pros and cons of other text editors. Thanks!

I do most of my editing in Atom. Lots of packages you can add to it to help with syntax highlighting in various languages, some include skeletons that present themselves when you start typing something like a tag or a block and you can then [TAB] to place the skeleton and tab through between the places you need to add your own code. Also available cross platform. And if you're really good, it's open for customisations.

If Notepad++ worked on Linux & Mac I'd use it. As it doesn't... Mac: Atom Linux: Atom (or Nano in a terminal) Windows: Notepad++

Phpstorm is really good for php codes and handles break points better. Also sublime can be used by a beginner, and it also has a lot of plugins like Emmet that can make it easier to code.

the best text editor is "visual studio code" it has a lot of additional packages and allows you to manage your git repositories from the same text editor with a great user interface for default and you can register it to open in the right click menu, additionally it automatically shows you when a plugin has an update and you can search the plugins from the same text editor, no need to search it from the web, and has more functionalities that just does the life easier for you.

There are plenty of good editors, that both beginners and professionals use, such as: Notepad, Vim, Emacs, Brackets, Atom, sublime text, Webstrom IDE, etc... I've read many answers about that subject and almost all experts would say that: Stick with a Great text editor (such as the ones mentioned above) and get to know how to customize it become comfortable using and that will do the job. Besides, many would recommend Atom because it's free, open-source, light-weight and many developers are working on ameliorating it all the time via github and as long as a thing is more used contributers will keep making it better. - If you're working on more advanced projects using webstrom ( there're a good number of experts using jetbrain's webstrom IDE).and it's main pros: - light-weight. - Very fast. - integrations (ex: github) - supports different popular frameworks. - supports client and server sides JS code. Cons: not free but you can try for free for 30 days.
