Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Is there a lightweight IDE similar to Workspaces that can be used for non TreeHouse projects. NetBeans is just too big.
I really like the way Workspaces works and since that's what I'm learning on, I'd like something similar for my personal projects.

I prefer using Sublime Text. A lot of the treehouse instructors use sublime text in their videos. Pretty much any text editor will do though. If you are on windows I have heard good things about notepad++. The folks at github recently released Atom as well. I tried it and it was pretty cool. Someone mentioned Brackets on the forum a few days ago and it looks pretty neat. Keep going back to sublime though
Atom and Brackets are worth exploring!
Thanks. That gives more more options to look at. I use Notepad++ for quick editing but I noticed when I turned on auto tag closing, it creates closing brackets for elements that don't require ie. <!DOCTYPE HTML></!DOCTYPE> ?? why would it do that?
