Anyone know of any programs to write code

There are a number of great, free text editors available for editing your code. One of these along with git and a shell/terminal (standard on Linux/Mac, and git for Windows helpfully includes Git Bash as a shell) to provide the console will give you most or all of what workspaces provides.
If you are willing to spend a little (around 60 USD) there are also programs called Integrated Development Environments (IDE) such as Webstorm that are quite powerful. They have built-in consoles and preview capabilities (using a local webserver instead of just viewing files). And a host of other features to help manage, build, and deploy your projects.

sublimetext is my favorite. You can just use it and not pay for it. But it's on my favorites due to plugins.
Atom is also very good and it's open source.

Is it possible to get a console that works like the console on treehouse but with Atom as the editor. I'm looking for a console that can show the errors and give hints like the treehouse console does. Cheers
