    Don't flame me if I have the terminology wrong :o I think it's IDE, the program environment you use to code in. I'm using HTML, CSS and will be diving into JavaScript in the very near future, and I'm using Windows. Notepad is too vanilla... I've seen a lot of different programs like UltraEdit and NotePad++ with syntax highlighting and they seem to be what I'm looking for, so I'm giving NotePad++ a try now since it's open source and free, and pretty low on the bloat factor.

    Any other suggestions? Sorry if this topic has been made before, no sub :wavey:

    100% fail

    hand coding in something like textmate will be better suited to multi language stuff.

    personally I use notepad++ and it's perfect for most things.

    notepad++

    i'm glad to see it is extensively used. one question, how do I change the default file extensions for the language styler, does that make sense?

    fair warning on phped.. if editing a remote file, DONT click the 'x' in the corner to close the file unless you want it to save it.

    I opened a file.. then decided to just edit on the server instead using vi. (needed to bust out a few regexps)

    When I was finished, I saved it in vi and closed it. Then I clicked the 'x' in PHPed to close the file that was open (which is the original)

    It fucking uploaded the original one again.

    grrr. :mad:

    I guess it's not an IDE I need but more of a lightweight, programmers notepad.
    NotePad++ is okay but I find 75% of the stuff it comes with kinda useless for my needs (at the moment). Is there a way to customize the menus so I can make it tiny?

    TextMate for OS X looks nice and light :hs: but there isn't really a good Windows equivalent. Most programmer notepads look the same on Windows, big and clunky. I guess I'm just being picky but if I'm going to be staring at a screen for a while, I'd rather not be staring at an eyesore :o

    e text editor is apparently the closest thing Windows has to something like TextMate, but it ain't freeware. apparently unstable too.

    Intype seems decent too but it's still in alpha, and doesn't look very well maintained :hs:

    ssh + vim for most edits, and UltraEdit on remote files over sftpdrive for more involved editing sessions, although UltraEdit has some weird display errors sometimes. I'm looking for something better..

    Dreamweaver is fail. If you code for years in raw notepad then move onto Dreamweaver, then yes, you would have saved a lot of time because you were coding in Notepad. I'd much rather use TextMate, sKEdit, BBEdit or any other light-weight editor rather than that abomination known as Dreamweaver.

    i know you guys hate dreamweaver, but i use it, but i have also used it to learn html and what not, i make sure when i am doing shit i am also looking in the coding window to learn what the html code is behind what i am doing, so i am using it as a tool to learn what i am doing, yes i can read books, but sometimes i learn better visually
