Code Editors


[link to this post]
 
Up until now I have used a combination of Notepad and Vi to edit and/or create any web pages. However I am now starting to work on things that are a little more ambitious and all the code gets a little confusing. So I was wondering what editors people have used, and what would rate well. Ideally something cross platform, but if that isn't possible I use windows more than Linux.


Any advice or input will be gratefully received.

I was talking about a scripting language.

Currently PHP, but I also want to learn Javascript.

well for managing PHP - Javabean IDE seems reasonable (though I haven't managed to pursuade it to allow script directories below server root which restricts peoples ability to see code crazy)

Eclipse and Netbeans are widely-used IDEs that are useful for creating scripted websites. Eclipse tends to lead Netbeans in functionality. You should also look at Aptana Studio which is built on top of Eclipse. I mostly use Aptana.

eclipse tends to be painfully slow (might be the works PC & java applications though)

Agreed. Eclipse can be slow if you are doing Java (not Javascript) development. The OP should also look at Nvu, which is highly regarded by many people.

Nvu used to have problems with uploading to FTP, multiple connections used to time out on certain FTP servers and there was no way of changing the amount of connections opened in the program. That was a year or two back, so they may have fixed it by now. Apart from that, nvu is a very good app for the price!

Could never get on with netbeans or eclipse, always prefered editing in DW/notepad and testing online, was just quicker. Will give aptana a try though, not heard of it before, ty.

I have happily used Buefish in the past when writing PHP scripts.
