    Editor for web based languages

    So, I have heard really good comments for notepad++ by a guy that is really good.

    Also, some others suggested sublime or netbeans (which I already use for C/C++/Java.

    What would you suggest?

    In other words, I am looking for an editor to write HTML, CSS, javaScript and these kind of languages!!

    I personally like netbeans. Once I got over the whole JAVA issue, it works pretty nice for me.

    Generally, learning a new tool takes time away from your development effort, so if I were you, I would try to see if whatever relevant plugin(s) for Netbeans works the way I like. If it does, well and good: you're already used to the Netbeans interface.

    That said, if you're looking for a general purpose editor like Notepad++, then I recommend Geany.

    I installed notepad++, but the creation and management of a project does not seem to be convenient. Probably I do something wrong. Can someone explain how to create a project in notepad?

    A quick search of the Web brings up... How to manage a development project using Notepad++.

    I have read this before asking.. It seems that first I have to create the file (as an irrelevant to the project file) and then from the project add the file to the project. Moreover, they don't seem to be saved on the same location by default.
    If that is the case, then I guess will have to say bb to notepad..

    To be more exact, what I want to have and does not have is the option to right click on the project and let me create a new file, which be automatically included in the project. Moreover, I would like the files of every project to be kept in the project's folder. If this can not be supported from notepad, then I should uninstall it.

    You could ask on the Notepad++ mailing list. I find it hard to imagine that this is not possible since it is like the bare bones of what the notion of a project is about. If having to add files to a project is too much to ask from you, then maybe an editor/lightweight IDE is just not for you.

    You say this as if someone here really has a vested interest in getting you to use Notepad++ (and yes, the name is Notepad++, not Notepad)

    The one thing I don't really understand is: why do you want to use a new editor at all just for writing HTML, CSS and JavaScript? What's so special about them?

    NetBeans (your current IDE, isn't it?) seems to be ok:

    I guess I feel too insecure of not mixing things around and make nothing work. But I will have to take the risk !!!

    EDIT: I think I should do what you say. Do I need to uninstall netbeans and install it from scratch? Or there is something more elegant? Because in the link Andreas provided, I found download from scratch only..

    Thanks for your time.

    What's wrong with your current setup?

    I somehow have the feeling that you make your life more complicated than it really is :-)

    To be fair Notepad++ is just ridiculous when it comes to project management. I could never understand that window. It really doesn't seem to let you create and add a new file to your project on the fly. It's that stupid of a feature. Neither can you create folders in your filesystem or link project folders to folders in your filesystem. So no folder in the project manager actually exists, which makes project management at the filesystem level (an important feature for anyone dealing with source control) an absolute joke.

    There may be some obscure option that lets you do all (of course not!), but if that's the case that's really already breaking the mold on something that virtually any IDE on the market has and making extremely simple to use. It would be just better if this feature didn't exist. I see no point to it.

    Only once I used notepad for project management. It was before this retarded feature that should embarrass any developer (it's not even properly documented; the only word on the help for project management reads "blabla"). But its still excellent with the right plugins. Just ignore that window.

    Andreas that's true˛.
    I searched the net for solutions and finally were able to setup an HTML editor in netbeans and I wasn't ok with that. Moreover I had some problems with some license. Also, there was no obvious way to launch the project in a real web browser. It was viewed in an embedded web browser.

    Maria, I couldn't agree more! However, the link you provided, was already read by me and did not help much.

    As a result, I am now installing aptana studio (which I am familiar with).

    Thanks all for your responses.
