Which text editor do you use?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys,


I am looking for a text editor to write HTML, CSS, PHP etc.


I have done some searches and sublime text looks good. But I want to find out if you recommend any others. Preferably it would have SASS/SCSS syntax or have the ability to install one.


Just looking for an opinion as I want my experience to be the best and quickest possible.


Thanks in advance,

Wish I could afford to do giveaways for you guys, Sorry school doesn't pay me! <3

I am currently using NotePad++ (their website was suppose to be hacked or something at the moment.. Might be harder to get your hands on it..)

But Sublime text 2.0 seems cool too.

I know aptana studio does HTML and CSS, so I'd imagine it'd do PHP and all the other "web" programming languages

Sublime Text 3, Brackets, and Eclipse, all in their respective 'fields'.


Brackets is essentially Atom, but built specifically for webdev--also from Github.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:


Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.


-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]


A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.


-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]


From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.


-OnePlus X - [7/10]


A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.


-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]


Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.


-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]


Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.


-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]


A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Atom because open source


Not only because of that, but because it is a really good editor. I've used it for some node.js work and it worked really well for that.

vim master race.


If I need a full environment I use Eclipse PHP development tools; PHPStorm is probably better but I don't care.

These two. Notepad++ for things where line numbers are helpful, and... Yeah. Not that I do anything advanced... ;)

Brackets.io for me. I found it looks much better than Notepad++, is free, open source and has a few cool features!

Notepad ++, Sublime Text 3(win64), I also use a lot of jetbrains stuff like pycharm and rubymine.

Really like Brakets think that I will probably use it :D


I've never heard of that before and it looks awesome... giving it a shot now too :). I've used Atom extensively though and came here to recommend that.
