When reading post from Codegeekz blog, I remembered that he had not mentioned notepad++, whereas notepad++ is powerfull text editor and easy to use. But, notepad++ only can run on the windows OS (all versions). Over the last few years, I always use notepad++ to create websites.
Currently, notepad++ reached version 6.7.7 and I’ve used it as version 5.0. The advantages of notepad++ are
- Easy to use
- Very lighweight, so you can running notepad++ on old PC or laptop. Support all windows system.
- No dependency
- Portable version or installed version.
- Has many syntax highlighter, so whatever your programming language are covered.
- Free forever.
- And many more.
Here is screen shot of Notepad++
Notepad++ also have text utility, you can use it for your project, save time and life.
Personally, I like notepad++ because of the advantages that I mentioned above and the ability to remember what has been opened. Let me open the index.php file and close it, then the next few days, I want to continue the project, notepad++ will automatically remember the file last opened. Really helped me.
So, I do not forget the idea of the project that I was working.
