Hi there,

I'm not sure I understand your question "Where is the text editor"?

This workshop does not use Workspaces (Treehouse's inhouse/online text editor). But because the workshop is dealing with local development, I'm assuming you are taking about a local editor, and for that no one can answer "Where it is?" as it would be a program on your local machine.

There are many editors out there and every developer will have their favorite. My choice is Atom, but here are some of the other popular ones:
Sublime Text Brackets - iOS ONLY Atom Visual Studio Code

This list is just a quick and off the top-of-my-head. A Text Editor will be a personal choice and needs to be downloaded and installed on your machine.

If you're looking at local PHP and Wordpress development, you will also need MAMP or WAMP servers (depending on your OS) or even Desktop Server (but I recommend the former). Again, a personal choice and for these it's pretty split on popularity.

I hope this helps clear things up. :)

NOTE: I deleted the 2nd post in regards to this exact question. Please refrain from Posting multiple threads for the same question.
