Notepad++ is my favorite free editor. It is a more robust version of the Notepad software that you would find available in Windows by default. That being the case, this is a Windows-only option. It includes things like line number, color coding, hints, and other helpful tools that the standard Notepad application does not have. These additions make Notepad++ an ideal choice for web designers and front end developers.

And alongside that, they always have a footprint somewhere in the source of the website (some people might not care, but I'm pretty picky about that).
In the end, I just pick up a template and edit it to my will on Notepad++. I'm not going to lie, I really don't enjoy HTML/CSS or making websites in general. But there are times when I just have to do it...
No, it doesn't. I'm sorry we won't be able to better meet your needs, but here only English is allowed, and we expect our hostees to be able to write and understand the language, as not only will they need to post in English if they wish to earn hosting, they will also need to be able to read and understand our Terms of Service, as well as also needing to utilize their English skills should they have hosting-related questions.
By the way, please note that posts like the one above are not Quality Posts and do not count towards earning hosting.
I am going to add Brackets in to the mix, Download here. I like how it is code aware and has live preview. (live preview is a bit hit and miss with Firefox). It has some good plugin as well like code templates. What I don't like about it is if you point to a large folder it takes a while to build its index. So I usually move to a smaller works space.
Hi there! This is my first post, and I start with saying that Wordpress is dominating the webdesign area in almost all parts of the business. It is not about CMS, not even blogging anymore. I read the old postings here, and I say today website-creating-people speaking about Elementor, Siteorigin Pagebuilder, Beaver Builder, Gutenberg Editor today. As it seems, Elementor will dominate this area for a while. If you did not tried it yet, go and check what they do all for you for free. It's amazing! Of course I use Notepad++ anytime I need to edit some php-files or so. But the webdesign development today goes that direction anyway. Happy web-designing!
A slightly older post, but I would still like to comment on it... It really depends on the project. If it is an extremely large project, then I use NetBeans IDE. However, for smaller projects, I use either Visual Studio Code or Atom. Both are excellent text editors and have many features that make them perfect for developing small to medium sized websites. For example, both have available extensions to run live servers as well as built in SASS compilers. So, what this means is that I can save my code and my browser auto-refreshes showing the updates. (I use dual monitors so I write code on one monitor and have a browser open on the other). It also means that as I am writing SASS, when I save, my SASS is automatically compiled to CSS. There are many other plugins that I use regularly with both such as auto closing tags and brackets, etc. But those first two are what I like the best. They save me a lot of time in not having to keep compiling my SASS and also in not having to stop and refresh the browser.
