Since WordPress has so many plugins that allow you to accomplish almost everything without using a single line of code, people often prefer the easy way out. But, of course, some people still choose to write their own code and create their sites with the same features.
Coding has grown so much over the years, with millions of people worldwide learning to code. But, of course, coding itself is not that easy. It requires knowledge of one or even more programming languages, and of course, time to code something. For this reason, in today’s article, we would like to give you a few options on some of the best code editors. It is good to provide a few options because people look for different features, and not everything works for everyone.
The editor should be easy to use without any knowledge about it; it should also be fast and rich in features.
We recommend doing even further research on some of the editors on this list if they seem interesting to you.
Notepad is on the top of the list for many people out there. It is an easy-to-use code editor that uses C++ as its programming language. But it comes with all other languages that a person might need to create a complex and professional-looking site. It is perfect to use for both beginners and experts.
The features list is pretty long, but some of the most mention-worthy features include external plugins, FTP support, compiler integration, syntax highlighting, code, and text folding, cross-platform compatibility, and much more.
The tool is free to use and open-source. I really do thing that this editor has earned a spot on today´s list, thanks to all of its features, easiness, and the fact that it is free.
Sublime Text is another powerful code editor worth being mentioned. It is a cross-platform, lightweight code editor, but packed with features. It looks great and is available on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Some of the new features they have added to the editor include refreshed UI, GPU rendering, context-aware auto-complete, typescript, JSX, and TSX support, syntax definitions, and updated Python API. But these are only the newest ones. Some of the old features are multiline selection and editing, external plugin integration, instant file switching, customizable interface, and many more.
It really does look professional and allows you to create an amazing-looking site. You need to buy it for $100, but it is a one-time payment and definitely worth it. You should give the editor a visit to their website given above.
TextWrangler is another interesting code editor. We would like to mention it, based on the fact that many people say it is one of the best code editors for people who use Mac.
Atom is a really interesting editor that stands out compared to the rest of the editors. You can share your code with your editor to get advice or help from other programmers. They allow you to get their GitHub package and use Git and GitHub directly from the editor as well.
It comes with a built-in package manager, cross-platform editing, file system browser, smart autocompletion, and more. The editor also gives you tons of tools ( like themes, packages, and additional customization tools) to fully customize the editor and really make it your own.
The last on our today´s list is TextMate. It should only be fair to give another option for the Mac users out there. The code editor really does include all of the programming languages, allowing you to create even the most complex lines of code, resulting in an amazing-looking and functioning site.
The editor comes with features such as scoped settings, macros, snippets, version control, multiple carets, syntax highlighting, column selection and typing, auto-completion, FTP support, file search, and much more.
The editor is definitely worth looking at, so if you are interested, we have given you a link above where you can directly download the editor. It is free, so giving it a try won´t cost you a thing but a bit of your time.
In my opinion, we have given you a shortlist of some of the most powerful and popular text editors on the market. If any of them seem interesting to you, do some additional research, and of course, read some of the reviews online. But, anyhow, I really do think all of the editors above are worth giving a try, but make sure it will satisfy all of your needs.
We hope you have found this article helpful and found an option that works for you.
