    Which is the Best Code Editor?

    The choice of a source code editor shouldn't come lightly. This is where we spend most of our development time and where productivity is gained or lost on a grand scale. No two developers are alike, so there is a plethora of editors that can accommodate any coding style. But this politically-correct statement doesn’t answer the most fundamental question of all - which is the best?

    To determine the best editor, we will rate each one on a scale from 1 to 5 stars, consisting of:

    • Beginner friendliness - how easy it is for a beginner to get up and running when opening it for the first time;
    • Power - this criteria rates the feature set, text editing capabilities, editing modes etc.
    • Extensibility - does the editor supports plugins, bundles or extensions;
    • Aesthetics - we strive for beauty in our work, so it is natural to look for the same in our tools;
    • Speed - this rates the startup time, performance when opening large files, snappiness of the interface;
    • Cross-platform - if the editor is available on multiple operating systems.
    • Price - the lower the cost, the higher the mark.
    • Editors are presented in groups, giving some context on the typical type of developer that would use them.

    The "best" is whichever one you prefer to use and are most productive with. Other people's opinions really don't matter much, and there is no "one size fits all" solution.

    Dreamweaver is not a code editor, but it does contain one (which is not very highly rated). If you use DW just as a code editor, you are missing the point.

    IMHO.

    Exactly and also Dreamweaver is paid software as far as i remember so if anyone is using it just as a text eidot it's sucha a waste of money. Especially when there is so many free great choices.

    I use PhpStorm and generally like it. It's a pretty full-fledged IDE. There are simpler solutions if you don't need all the bells and whistles. I also own BBEdit which is a decent text/code editor.
