Notepad++ Plugins You Should Check Out

Hey everyone.

If you are using Notepad++ or you want to take a look at this incredible text-editor then you could check out these plugins I am using with Notepad++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/).

My favourite plugin is

Zen Coding (http://code.google.com/p/zen-coding/)

This plugin is very powerful, take a look here:
http://vimeo.com/7405114

Smashing Magazine post about Zen Coding: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009...ite-html-code/

Other plugins I am using with Notepad++

- JSLint
- JSMin
- Lorem Ipsum
- HTML Tag
- TextFX
- WebEdit
- XML Tools

The Plugin Central for Notepad++ is located here:

Have fun coding

I am using notepad++ too, for html, php and css coding.
Zen Coding is a powerful plugin, I am using this.
Also, Lorem Ipsum is very helpful sometimes.
I didn't know about The Plugin Central, it has a decent amount of plugins, I am going to check them, there may be something useful.

Wow, Plugins?.......Who knew? Not me, that's who...

I recently got totally hooked on Notepladd++, but had no idea there were plugins.

But one of the reasons why I use it for some things WAY more then I use MS word, is because it's simple, light, and doesn't use a lot of system resources.

Don't those plugins slow Notepad ++ down?

Also, if you had to only pick one plugin, which one would it be, and why?

Hey there.

It depends on what you want to do with Notepad++.

Those plugins do not slow down Notepad++ for me.

If you are coding (X)HTML/CSS with Notepad++ (like me) then I would choose Zen Coding.

Just check the vimeo video about Zen Coding from the first post, then you know why I would choose it

Well hell! I don't do much coding these days, but I do use Notepad ++ everyday, all day. For giggles, I'll watch the video. Who knows, maybe it will get me back to CSS again? Heh.
Needless to say, thanks for answering AND for the thread

i've always found plugins for notepad++ to be somewhat lacking however the zen plugin looks great. will take a minute to get used to it but i can see how useful it'd be.

will download it when i get home and have a play.

how did they get notepad++ to look like it is in the video? looks a lot more flash then mine
