Hey everyone:

When it comes to writing code, sometimes notepad or other generic text editors get a bit hard on the eyes.

I was wondering what everyone else uses/recommends to use for php/html/javascript editing?

currently I am using jEdit and HTML-Kit

-edit by computerkid1220

Since this is more of a web topic, it has been moved to the web-design forum.

-edit

um, I have 1st Page 2000, from evrsoft.com, and it is nice, but doesn't highlight the PHP codes, and i did some searching (on gGoogle of course ) and found one that looks neat, http://hapedit.free.fr/, I am going to download it and see how it works.

Yeah, right now I have switched to using just Jedit.

It's advantage and disadvantage is that it is written in Java which means you need the JRE; however, this also means it works on almost every OS. Also, it has a great plugin interface - I like customizing my syntax highlighting so it is super colorful

yeah, of all that I have tried, I like Dreamweaver the best, I got a free trial, and it is very simple, and I really like how colorfull the highligtin is, but, the price tag is a bit out of my budget! I just use the text only part, I dont like WYSIWYG editors, I am sick of sloppy code, and sometimes it messes up the PHP script if you are not carefull in WYSIWYG mode.

Yeah,
I have a love/hate relationship with trials. They are great and useful and interesting while the trial period lasts; however when the trial runs out you want the product but are still too poor/cheap to buy it (especially dreamweaver).

I really like the open source movement that is going on... there is some good/free software that is being made -- and the best part, it is free and is sure to be updated (if it has users); the "company" won't go out of business either

TSWebcoder is a nice one, it is free, doesn't have as many feature as some of the shareware ones, but at least it is free! Cool

Bluefish is most definitely the greatest text editor and web development studio I have ever tried.
Bluefish [ http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/ ]

Sorry, no Windows version.

The essential apps for web design:

1. HTML-Kit: Make it
2. FileZilla: Upload it
3. FireFox: View It

Optional Components:

1. Apache/IIS: Have your own testing server
2. PHP: Create better web pages with a php-enabled server
3. MySQL: Create databases for stuff like *phpBB*
4. A copy of phpBB so people can comment on your site (requires PHP and MySQL)

I think the default text editor is vi (there are several); In linux I really like kate... it is simple but I really like the syntax highlighting colors. I haven't tried Bluefish though Rolling Eyes
