Which code editor do you use?


Recommended Posts

I really love to use Brackets as it feels light-weight, modern, and more intended for web designers or front-end developers (like myself). It also doesn't hurt that it has plenty of nice user themes and plugins. 

Which code editor do you use?

I just might have to switch over to Visual Studio, or some other code editor, as it seems that Adobe will end support for Brackets later this year. 😞 

They posted this on their website a few days ago:

Brackets EOL notice

Adobe is committed to delivering exceptional software and services to our customers. It is in our nature to innovate and try new things, and it was in this spirit that we introduced Brackets, a modern open-source code editor for HTML, CSS, and Javascript, in 2014. Brackets was among the first web-based code editors, but the market has matured and other solutions have eclipsed some of the roles Brackets had focused on. As we re-focus on products that broadly provide our customers with the most value, Adobe is announcing the end of support for Brackets as of September 1, 2021.

If you would like to continue using, maintaining, and improving Brackets, you may fork the project on GitHub. Adobe will no longer contribute to the Brackets project or resolve any pull requests or issues contributed via the community on Github starting on March 1, 2021 and will archive the project from GitHub on September 1, 2021.

Through Adobe’s partnership with Microsoft, we encourage users to migrate to Visual Studio Code, a free and extensible code editor from Microsoft for macOS, Linux, and Windows. To support Brackets users and ease the transition, Visual Studio Code recently added extensions that will help Brackets users feel more at home, including adding Brackets keyboard shortcut mapping to Visual Studio Code. You can read more about migrating from Brackets to Visual Studio Code here.

All user data hosted in the extensions registry will be deleted on September 1, 2021. We encourage extension developers to download their data by clicking on the extension name before this date.

We thank our community of more than a million users and extension developers for your support.

Such a shame, I really loved using Brackets. 😭

Do it you won't regret it.

Recently, I've been using Notepad++ for my HTML and CSS files. It's pretty basic but does the job it needs to do well

That seems like a pretty straightforward and easy-to-use code editor. 🙂

I'm currently testing both Visual Studio Code and Atom. To be honest, Microsoft's Studio editor seems advanced and way too feature-rich for my needs while Atom does feel pretty similar to Brackets.

Brackets is a super good editor for a free one. Visual Studio Code is the best free editor though.

If your looking to go all out and don't mind spending $89 you can get PHPStorm which is the best IDE and editor for web development. If you want the web development without the PHP part then you can get WebStorm which is the same thing without the added PHP support.

I've moved to Visual Studio as it offers the most complete package and I'm really starting to like it. 🙂 But is there any way to make automatic word wrap a default setting for every new file?

For quick tasks, I like to use Notepad++. When I am working on an actual coding project and not just editing a file, I am most definitely using Visual Studio Code. Around 2015 I was using Brackets and that was my preferred editor. I tried Atom and it's good, but I really fell in love with VSCode. Its Microsoft, but its also available for Linux users, which I thought was awesome.
