I use jEdit.
I’ve been using jEdit for many years; probably close to 10 now. It’s still actively developed. The last release was 4.4pre1, released in February 2011. I’m always looking for a way out but I keep coming back to jEdit & plugins because it meets all my needs.
I want to like Eclipse but it’s memory hungry and creates a bunch of unnecessary hidden files that I don’t want to manage. I also didn’t understand the project representation. I tried to remove a project from some view, and it deleted all my files which is not what I wanted. I’m sure I could learn given enough time. Instead, I went back to jEdit and a few plugins (Project Viewer, SuperAbrevs, CtagsInterface, …)
I want to like Netbeans but with the recent Oracle acquisition I have strong doubts about maintenance. I’m thinking Netscape 6 circa 2001, e.g. a disaster. I’m keeping my eye on it as version 7 was released a just a few days ago… Also, no Lua?
I want to like emacs and/or vi but there’s something to be said about being raised on MS-DOS Editor and the menu habbits that came with it. In fact, when it comes to Linux/BSD editors I use nano.
I want to like XCode but I don’t. It’s not cross platform.
What are you guys/girls using?
Honestly, I just use Notepad. Sometime WordPad if I actually need to write something pretty but mostly just notepad.
For everything that doesn’t involve a full-blown IDE, I use Notepad++
PSPad does it for me.
Notepad++ is second place, but frankly, i miss a lot off stuff in notepad++ that pspad provides for.
I have an allergic reaction to anything that requires JDK or even just JRE (for that single reason I have Android SDK installed on MSVPC)
For occasional web programming: WeBuilder
For occasional Windows stuff: Visual Studio 2010 Express (in MSVPC, because I tend to do empirical debugging)
For everything else (like writing forum posts to avoid browser doing something stupid so that I have to remember what I was ranting about): Notepad
Coding is not my job for living.
I like Emacs because it has lots of keyboard shortcuts and can be used without touching the mouse. Sort of like Renoise.
I don’t like IDEs. I use Vim for all my programming.
i don’t do much coding, but i use notepad++ for html/css/php. on #! linux i use gedit i think, but that’s just the default there.
any one got autocomplete for the Renoise Lua/API stuff going in anything?
Emacs autocomplete learns what I type which is nice but I would like something that knows all about it.
Emacs on Linux for me.
Notepad++ at work on Windows.
Both rock for different reasons.
I’m working with Eclipse since 2003(?), mainly Java, C++, Qt coding.
Before that I used Emacs for ages for Perl, C, and some Prolog back then.
Win; Notepad++ for years, now Sublime Text packs some unique feats.
Linux; Nano, Gedit.
I wrote a script that pulverizes the API docs into a list of functions. The idea was that it could be used for autocomplete. Maybe someone can actually get this working in their text editor of choice?
Here’s the latest output:
Pocket sized and portable, I use it without a keyboard. Options like color change = easy on the eyes, line break, and others, makes it pretty useful.
For AS3: FlashDevelop.
For web stuff… err FlashDevelop It’s got highlighting for html, css and php so I end up using it for most things. Such a nice editor.
Recently have been trying out SublimeText which seems very nice indeed. I’ll probably switch to that for web stuff on my next big project I think.
I still use EditPlus on occasion just because of the built in FTP client and powerful macro recorder.
UltraEdit for code editing, Visual Studio Express 2010 for debugging.
I use linux at home, so it’s vim for me.
At work I use notepad++, Visual Studio (for c# and asp.net) and Quest Software Toad for Oracle database setup, querying and pl/sql. If I’m on a Solaris box it’s back to vi.
