For a while now I’ve been using BBedit on my Mac. I run into a few things that are starting to annoy me. An example would be auto-indent not working correctly: I open a function and when I hit enter, I expect a tab indented. Having to do this manually seems unnessary. Same goes with curly brackets. As soon as I open one and hit enter, a closing one could be added two lines down (since I’ll be probably closing my loop or function).
So.. what editor do you use?
I’m using netbeans and textmate on mac (sometimes notepad++ on windows)
When I’m coding on my Mac I use Coda, I use Textmate sometimes too but I just like the general feel of Coda better. I also like the ease of having the uploading functionality built in so I don’t need to keep switching between apps.
When on my Windows 7 laptop I use phpDeveloper7, I used to use Dreamweaver but just feel that phpDeveloper is less cluttered and let’s me just get on with what I need to do.
Neither of these are free, but as they are what I use everyday to work in, I feel that paying out a bit for something that feels better to use is worth the investment.
Obviously these are just my opinions and you may hate the software, that’s what free trials are for
I use my own editor “FEDITOR” to code. Check it out here. http://codecanyon.net/item/feditoronline-file-editor/149742
