Which is the best code editor for creating html, css and php files?
I would like to be able to work through the lessons using a code editor. Which editor will create html, css and php files? I am using Visual Studio 15; however, I need to pay for the php editor.
You asked this question 2 days ago...
There isn't something like "the best IDE" or "the best editor". Some people theses days even still run EMacs or Vi. Some still say that Notepad++ is the best ever created.
Its just as always => personal preference...
Most of the functions in the new IDEs and Editors are nice to have but not really needed. If someone wants to write HTML the does not need hundred of plugins (in fact my editor crashed A LOT while i was working because of stupid third party stuff).
For such simple stuff like html/css/js you can almost use anything.
For PHP i would recommend Netbeans since there is a way to debug your PHP with Netbeans and its free...also its pretty common for people who dont want to run PHPStrom

Visual Studio CODE is outstanding, has fantastic inline PHP debugging built in (as well as most other languages), pop up documentation on functions and elements for the language your working with, as well as integrating terminal access for running and testing your .php scripts, and GIT integration. Also used by many experienced pros. I'd recommend that one.
