Lookings for a proper web / page editor.   Requies PHP of course.   Also HTML5.

Notepad ++ (NPP) seems ok but may lack ideal integration.   Any suggestions?

What does Darrin Lythgoe use?

 

Thank you,

 

Stan

Hi Stan,

An article here makes a conclusion about suitable editors based on frequency of use....

Conclusion

There is a wide range of HTML editors for Windows, but only a handful excel. For non-daily use, there’s Notepad++. For daily professional use, however, Notepad++ would not suffice. To that end, there are better options, such as Sublime Text 2, which can be customized to suit the user’s needs. Fans of turnkey editors might prefer Aptana, SynWrite, or Programmer’s Notepad.

 

 

That been said, most TNG uses are hobbyists and wouldn't make daily or even weekly edits to their server files so Notepad++ should suffice. Darrin would be a more frequent professional user so would likely use something more advanced.

I use various editors, but for maximum flexibility and features, I use a free version of RJ TextED.  It caters to programmers, but also simple edits, any coding language you can come up with, and gives you sort, hex edit, column edit, etc.

RJ TextEd - A Unicode source and text editor.

RJ TextEd is a full featured text and source editor with Unicode support. It is also a very powerful web (PHP, ASP, JavaScript, HTML and CSS) development editor. The functionality extends beyond text files and includes support for CSS/HTML editing with integrated CSS/HTML preview, spell checking, auto completion, HTML validation, templates and more. The program also has a dual pane file commander, as well as a (S)FTP client to upload your files. Below is a small list of features available. For a full list check out the features section.

RJ TextEd is released as FREEWARE. https://www.rj-texted.se/

It really comes down to using something you are comfortable with. IMHO WYSIWYG editors often result in a lot of extra garbage and these are what can cause quite big differences in the way sites are rendered in the various browsers on different platforms.

As mentioned earlier notepad++ is a great general purpose editor and very easy to use.

I have also tried brackets http://brackets.io/

and emacs https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/ but ended up going back to notepad++ (probably because of familiarity)

Thank you.  The info was extremely helpful.   BTW, I like how you integrated surnames into template 8.  I find there are many functions / widgets in each of the various templates and it would be great if there was an a la cart method of creating your own web page.  However, I am extremely grateful of the functions that do exist and I can work with the code and pick and chose what to use although it is very time consuming.   And the big worry is how to upgrade when Darrin makes changes...

Thank you.   I will check in with my friends from Sweden on this one!
