What text editor is used by Treehouse

The text editor used by Guil lets you use control / to comment out code. I have not found one I can use that does the same thing. What text editor is used by Treehouse and how can I get the same thing online.

I know teachers have their own preferences. Kenneth Love is certainly fond of Vim (as I am). And the feature you mention is built into the workspaces editor, but I'm not sure what desktop software might also do it.

Maybe Guil Hernandez will comment directly.

I can't speak for any Treehouse employees, but that feature is available in Atom.

Thank you very much for your reply. I downloaded Atom and trying it out. Is there a way to preview in browser?

I don't use it - I use a live reload server in my Gulpfile - so I can't speak for its quality, but this plugin was the first thing that Google showed.

I can't recall exactly what editor Guil uses, but Sublime Text 3 has the feature you mentioned (as well as loads of other great benefits). Check it out!

Another popular one is Brackets, but I'm uncertain of the exact feature set.
