Is there a recommended text editor for Chromebooks? How would I save a file locally on a Chromebook?

I have a Samsung chromebook, which makes downloading certain text editors and even downloading this workspace, a bit confusing. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get around this? I know I will probably have to get a different computer at some point, but looking for a more immediate solution for now.

Thanks!

I’ve been using Brackets & Sublime, then set-up MAMP to test code locally. Found Brackets better for HTML and Sublime better for PHP.

Apparently you can install VS Code on Chromebooks, and there are some YouTube videos available to show you how.

But since workspaces are web-based, wouldn't they work just as well on any platform?

VS CODE is pretty good, I recommend it.

Thanks to you both!

The workspaces have been great, but I was looking for another text editor to start working on my own projects on the side while doing Treehouse videos. I ended up downloading Carat for my chromebook which has been great so far, but also read great things about VS code. Thanks for the suggestion!

You can always create a fresh blank workspace and use it for anything you'd like.

Glad I could help, and happy coding!
