- After switching between many code editors, I end up using VS Code, it fast, flexible and reliable. It also has many useful HTML add-ons to make the whole thing easier.
- I'm not a developer by any means, but I've always been hacking on front-end stuff and making landings for all my projects etc. Atom is great because it has a wide range of plugins and customizations that make the whole experience a lot smoother. The best part is it is integrated with GitHub and I use GitHub Pages to host my sites so it's really easy to publish changes etc :)
- Brackets has an awesome live-reload feature which *highlights the parts of your website which is affected by the current line of CSS you are editing*. I can't stress this enough - it makes it so easy to figure out why your styles aren't working.If you're just starting out with HTML, then I highly recommend Brackets. Although I use Visual Studio Code day-to-day, Brackets was great at helping me understand the fundamentals of HTML, and more importantly, how CSS and HTML interact. I would move to Visual Studio Code once you're comfortable with HTML/CSS and want to customise your developer experience for efficiency and personal preference.
- it's great, not as memory consuming as the electron apps like Atom or VS Code, and has lots of features
- Made by Panic Inc. Very refined, reliable & versatile text editor out-of-the-box.Coda was my go to for several years. It is better than a something like VSC because of it’s built in FTP tools. You can easily edit sites that are live such as Wordpress templates etc.
- 1Espresso for Mac v3We have tried all sorts of development tools and platforms and have come to the conclusion that Espresso works the best for us. It is very customizable and has everything you need. They have a trial version that never expires (just a few nags once in a while) and the full version is only about $80. Definitely a great choice and worth looking into!
