Text editor


#1

hey all, does anyone know where I can find a good text editor for code?


#2

There are always these two:

www.vim.org
www.gnu.org/software/emacs/

I prefer vim more because I’m more familiar with it, but both editors
work well. To make this more ruby related this is somewhat interesting:
http://ruvi.rubyforge.org/.

If you are on Mac OSX, try subethaedit.

It’s not an editor it’s an IDE but I find eclipse with the RDT (ruby
development tools), subclipse and darcs plugins a great development
environment (especially under Fedora Core 4 where it is compiled
natively). Another bonus is eclipse works on pretty much all OS so
you can use it at home, at work, everywhere.

Dan,

While everyone has their favorites, I’d like to recommend some of mine.
If you’re using Windows, I’d recommend:

On Linux, I find it hard to beat Quanta. It comes with KDE, under the
kdewebdev package.

I hope this helps!

There are millions of threads about this topic, but ok, here’s a short,
incomplete list (assuming you want to code Ruby):

      - Emacs[1] or XEmacs[2] or SXEmacs[3]
      - Vim[4]
      - Kate[5]
      - Eclipse[6] with RDT[7]
      - Scite[8]
      - Freeride[9]
      - ...
      - Paper & Pencil[10]

Which one you choose depends on your platform and your personal
preference.

Regards,
Tassilo

Notepad isn’t a good text editor for anything. While it’s true that
as of Windows XP they made a giant leap forward is usability by finally
adding a keyboard shortcut for File->Save, Notepad still can’t perform
such complicated tasks as, say, handling files with Unix line endings.
Don’t even think of hoping for such advanced far-future Star Trek era
Artificial Intelligence features such as syntax coloring or regex-based
search.

That’s why I’ve replaced all my links to notepad.exe with notepad2.exe
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Notepad2).

Basic/generic code highlighting, line numbering, regex search & replace.
While Ruby isn’t one of the languages it was designed for, just being
able to see where the closing ), } or ] is is certainly helpful in long
or complicated lines.

Other than that… Small and light.

If you’re on Linux, but coming from Windows, consider nedit.

Crimson Editor, up until now, has been my favourite.
It still is, but development seems to have stopped (if that really is a
problem).
A good (free) alternative seems to be ConTEXT

Ditto with ConTEXT, I like it a lot. Windows only, so only use it if
you’re
un-cool, like me :slight_smile: I like that whatever loony language I want to try
out
next, there’s a user-submitted ConTEXT syntax highlighter for it.

I use Window Xp and i have tried JEdit, SciTe, Cream/Vim, UltraEdit,
FreeIde and Eclipse, but sometimes I need a debugger too. Aracno Ide is
very fast and I use it also when I want to edit a simple script.

Emacs is a hard beat . Download a few extension modules and your off,
color syntax, compiling, debugging all with out leaving the
environment. I am teaching my Emacs to make breakfast.

The Zeus for Windows IDE:

syntax highlighting, project/workspace mangement, ftp
editing, class browsing, scripting, integrated CVS etc.
