Just wanted to add: You can, however, download your Workspace's projects, by just opening your Workspaces and going to File -> Download Workspace.

Then, you can continue working with that files in your own computer, using an editor like those recommended by Christopher.

Hi Joshua,

Workspaces is a text editor exclusive to Treehouse so unfortunately it is not something you can download as an application to use for personal projects. The top few I recommend and in no way are ordered from best to worst would be:

  • Sublime Text
  • Brackets
  • VS Code (not a pure text editor, more of an IDE)
  • Notepad++
  • Atom

There are many more so do some research and play around with the one that works best for you.

Take care and Happy Coding!
