What Code Editor Should I Use
Alright, let's talk code editors. We've been using V. S. Code so far and we're going to continue for this course. Why? Because it's the most popular and mainly because it's the most fashionable. Okay, there are there's some quirks to it that make it awesome. But there are people out there that argue that sublime text is the best or brackets. Is or dream weavers or atom or no pay plus Plus there's lots of different editors. Let's jump into this video and just give you a quick run through a few of them. Just kind of show you what you should look for and what's important. All right, let's get in there. Okay, so we've been using visual studio code for our text editor. Now, we could have done this course in any of the editing programs. Now we're only using V. S. Code in this case because ves code is the most popular. So my previous courses, I've used Dreamweaver because I often spend my life in the adobe world and but I guess what I wanted to show you real quick was um first of all how thes...
e editors are really helpful. Okay. But often can be very um what do you call it, fashionable? So if I'd done this course a year ago or two years ago, it probably would have been in this one called Sublime text because it was the most popular then. And before that there was things like komodo and before that there was notepad plus plus there's lots of different editors. But we all end up in the same place doing the same thing. They're just people get used to some of the quirks to them. So I've downloaded and installed. Sublime text just to show you like if you're getting started in sublime, it's a lot cleaner. And if I want to put in all my kind of document stuff for html in this case, instead of exclamation mark and tab. Okay, it's html and hit tab. You can see we get to a very similar place. It doesn't have as much in the document type. Okay. Just the real basics, so, but we end up with the same place. Right? We go down here and we type H one. Okay. And we start typing. Same with let's look at brackets, brackets is another popular one. Exclamation mark. Tab works the same. Okay. As it did in the S code they have they don't have all the bits and pieces that we want in ves code. Okay. They decide on a real kind of minimum option. Dreamweaver as well. Great code editor. If we go to file new, they do it automatically. If you say you want an html page, you say HTML. five Click create. You can see what's in all the bits and pieces. You need to get started. The reason I show you this is if you're looking for work after this or you start working with different developers and they're using different editors. There's not really, you know, they have their own perks and quirks, but we were creating the same thing. All right, let's go on to the next video.
