There are so many good text editors now its hard to pick 'one' favorite. In Windows Notepad++ will always be my favorite, although I do get tired of using the same text editor for long periods of time and will also use Visual Studio Code, Brackets or Atom.

VS Code is awesome software, I am using it on Linux Mint right now and most the coding I do is done using it. It has a ton of useful plugins and its very fast on my laptops.

My favorite editor is Dreamweaver. I like it due to it's intellisense. Notpad++ is also a good editor for coders.

I was the same I went from Notepad++ to sublime text and just prefer the features and how much easier it is to work with.

I know there's many many text editors out there but sublime has just "worked" for me.

I often use mix between notepad++, sublime & visual code. Each have its own advantage.

I've just started with coding lately and I'm using Sublime text. It's easy to use with many supporting plugins and free.

What kind of features? Why don't you explain a few that you really love?

off the top of my head:

- ability to change the color scheme - I like monokai since it's easy on the eyes


- App loads very quickly
- file switching - open files quickly
- highlights other common strings on page that I've selected with mouse cursor.
- Autocomplete. If editing HTML, I just type 'a' and then tab button, it creates a link '<a href=""></a>'

Any editor that supports the features you like is the best - coming from someone who still uses Homesite because he likes the extended search and replace function despite having several other much newer tools to play with (others are just rarely used).

Syntax highlighting and search/replace are probably at the top - auto-complete can get in the way as often as it is useful (but an icon menu spread for tags is useful).

Sometimes you have to automate the automation's.

I use Notepad++, Sublime text3, Webstorm and IntelliJ
For normal web coding i use sublime or notepad but for more advanced ones i use the later two.

I have used Sublime text editor because it natively supports many programming languages and markup languages and it has good features and amazing performance.

I've used 'Notepad++' for many years. Not long ago I saw 'Sublime Text' with it's extraordinary features for coding, suddenly 'Notepad++' lost it's cool.
Your thoughts on 'Sublime Text'?

Plain old TextEdit works out for me. Most of the times though, I find myself working directly in xcode.
