Best Programming Text Editors Out There

Programming Text Editors

As a programmer you want your workflow as smooth as possible. A text editor won’t make us a good programmer. But It’s easier to do coding in something that has good intellisense and highlighting rather that just coding in regular notepad. In this article I’ll mention some really good “Programming Text Editors” that you can use. I used and tried all of them and they won’t be ordered in any particular way.Therefore let’s just say they are all equally great and get started.

Sublime Text 3

Sublime Text is a great text editor for programming, markup and prose. You’ll love the slick user interface, extraordinary features and amazing performance. It is available on Windows, macOS and Linux. They just released the new version and  it got a great “makeover” and bunch of new features that you can look up here. I personally use Sublime every day as my main editor. The keyboard shortcuts are making me more productive at work.
