Notepad++ text editor

Postby jsvenancio » 01 Feb 2020 18:20

Good afternoon.

Is the Notepad ++ software not available in the repositories?

What text editor do you use to program?

Code: Select all

https://notepad-plus-plus.org/
SolydX - 64bts - Debian

Sorry for my bad English, I speak Portuguese and use the Google translator.

Notepad++ is a Windows application if I remember correctly.

Depends in what language you are coding.

I use Eric for my Python applications and Kate for the rest.

I've been seeing the editor "Kate" and it looks interesting.

But I also remembered "Geany".

I'm taking a Java programming course on the (Udemy) website, on the same website I'm going to take another Python course and from what I could see the text editor "Eric" will be useful for the Python course.

I used to use Geany but for my Udacity courses I changed to Netbeans since I had to do HTML/CSS/JS and needed the integrated webserver. Netbeans is meant primarily for Java developement and depending upon how much integration you need it might be for you too. Get it from the official site, it's still under heavy developement and the version in the repo is outdated. Setting it up is not very well documented but I can asure you that it works well in the end.

For python Geany is a good choice, you can get it from the repo.
