About Notepad++

Notepad++ is a Windows-based solution that helps application developers create and edit source codes in multiple programming languages, such as Python, Matlab, Ruby and Verilog. The sessions functionality enables team members to create multiple active files and store information, such as current files, bookmarks, selections and languages. Notepad++ allows employees to find and replace text across multiple files based on several methodologies, such as incremental, dialog-based and dialog-free search navigation. The task automation module lets staff members record and reuse document editing action sequences. Additionally, the built-in graphical user interface (GUI) enables supervisors to edit configuration files, customize context menus, add keywords, schedule data backups and generate keyboard shortcuts. Notepad++ provides plugins, which allows staff members to create messages and notifications to generate instructions or raise queries within the platform. It is open-source and is available for free. Support is extended via documentation, community forums and other online measures.

Coding was never been easy

Its very easy IDE to use for my eyes even if i am using it at night or daylight. Its easy with update functionalities for back-end and front-end users. It includes the most classes pre-defined which will be limited in other same products or need to be imported. Sometimes i don’t have internet connections so i would not be stuck for any class or library.

Pros

I like the backup and recover first to save my progress, the IDE is a home platform where you work i like the environment however i want i can change it the theme colors, fonts, size. And specially the classes to import while coding i may not have internet connection but notepad++ helps us to overcome this segment in most cases. in back-end or front-end development.

Cons

Uhm overall i liked the platform compare to other platforms i used before its not limited and is a complete comprehensive IDE and including most libraries and classes for developer, ease of their/our work. So far i don’t see any particular segment to not like or like least about notepad++.

Sublime Text

Reasons for Choosing Notepad++

I wanted an IDE to work in all aspects of my development, back-end front-end, coding and design. Some IDE would not allow us to work in machine languages or design html, css, javascript… or lack of classes in some IDEs made me to switch for a better one and affordable one like notepad++.

Free Notepad which can give you all features

I have been using Notepad ++ from past 10 years. This is a life saver for us as it offers tons of features and addon which paid note pad apps does not offer. I used this on daily basis to compare configuration, replace strings and also it uses less memory.

Pros

1. Free to use
2. Tons of addons
3. User friendly
4. Frequent updates released
5. Supporting programming

Cons

I have not found any issues with Notepad ++ as such

Notepad++ - Most simplified IDE for Corporates

My overall experience with Notepad++ has been really good. It is great for beginner programmers providing simplistic UI-UX for coding. Notepad++ has been a great support for the team considering the fact that we have more than 1 lakh lines of code for every one of our applications, and we can keep open all the files at ease and edit these as and when required in no time without any lag. Notepad++ has proved to be an efficient and fast tool.

Pros

The best thing I like about Notepad++ is its simplicity and speed. As a part of the Product team at ZS, we create mini-code snippets in Python for incremental functionalities which we deem important for incorporation into our pre-existing products. Notepad++ is very simple to use with minimal UI-UX complexities, and one needs to simply select the language and start coding. Also, Notepad++ opens up as many tabs as required simultaneously, and provides the option of two panes to compare codes which are simply great

Cons

Notepad++ has become a bit archaic as compared to other IDEs available in the market like MicroVisual Studio Code and Pycharm (specific to Python). These have capabilities to auto-recommend the parameters required for input in a function (with the datatype required) and also provide direct links to redirect to the function from wherever it is called. These are some features that Notepad++ lacks currently, and can be considered for inclusion.

A Notepad You'll Actually Want to Use

My overall experience with Notepad++ has been very po

Pros

I love the look and feel of Notepad++ the most. When you switch over from the native Microsoft Notepad it is a world of difference.

Cons

It feels like it requests an update pretty frequently but that is a small nitpick.

Alternatives Considered

Reasons for Choosing Notepad++

Notepad++ is free and far more useful than the alternative.

Notepad++ - THE coder's tool for managing source code

Overall, it is a highly robust system that will help you get the coding job done!

Pros

It has many great qualities, including tabbed editing, default settings, session backup settings, file associations and more. It actually many more features than you will probably use!

Cons

The large number of features can be a bit overwhelming and a lot to get used to.
