Notepad++

by Jason GreenOctober 17, 2009

Ok If you haven’t heard, Notepad++ is basically the end-all editor for writing code, FAST.While it’s not a true IDE for writing full scale applications like Java’s NETBeansVisual StudioDreamweaver, etc., it’s makes life so much easier for those of us who only need to do editing, quick code-revision, editing, and even as just a syntax highlighter.

It Supports all these computer languages:

C C++ Java C# XML HTML
PHP CSS makefile ASCII art (.nfo) doxygen ini file
batch file Javascript ASP VB/VBS SQL Objective-C
RC resource file Pascal Perl Python Lua TeX
TCL Assembler Ruby Lisp Scheme Properties
Diff Smalltalk Postscript VHDL Ada Caml
AutoIt KiXtart Matlab Verilog Haskell InnoSetup
CMake YAML

It also supports FTP, Themes, Macros, and a LOT more!! When Installing it even asks if you want to install it to a Thumb drive to make it portable!!

Clone Mode, for example lets you open the SAME document twice, so you can edit the Top of a file on the left pane, and the bottom on the right pane, and what changes in one pane, also changes in the other. I know of NO OTHER EDITING APPLICATION that does this! (See Screenshot)

Multi View Clone Mode

Well go give it a try, it even comes with Themes you should check out too, that change the colors of the Syntax highlighting to make it look like anything from a Green screen terminal to a neon or neo gothic l33t script editor.

It’s great for those tweaks to your website here and there, I mean, I have used it ALOT on this very site!
