My name is Rich & am new to this forum and coding. I want to build my own site and have been following on to some microsoft/youtube tutorials and would like to know which text editor/software to start with. I like writing code and do not really want software to do the work for me as I like to know that I did the work. I am using notepad but was unsure if it is easier or quicker or just better to use another editor
Try notepad++ or crimson edit v3.6.
I use Komodo Edit, but browser choices among developers tend to breed arguments almost as much as language choices, so ultimately you'll just have to try a few to get an idea which features/styles work best for you.
