Free JavaScript editor

Free JavaScript editor

(OP)
I use visual studio to develop web app.
Except for VS, what free JS editor is the best to learn JS with intelligence feature? (will display building functions, property and usage)

RE: Free JavaScript editor

Geany or Aptana Studio

RE: Free JavaScript editor

I agree with Aptana, but in case you want something less full featured, Notepad++ is great for all your editing needs.

RE: Free JavaScript editor

Text2 rocks in many ways. You can program a short string to insert as little code and as much code as you like. I created many macros to help me speed thru. Here is one. I type HTML5 hit tab and a brand new HTML page is loaded for me with Google Scripts links for Jquery, and several other links, my favorite main.css, main.js... And the cursor is sent where you want it to be...

CODE --> Javascript

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
	<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
	<title>TITLE</title>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/main.css">
	<script type='text/javascript' src='/js/main.js'></script>
	<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script> 
	<script> 
		jQuery(document).ready(function($) { 
                    |cursor blinking here
    		request.send();   
    		var dta = request.responseText.split("\n");

		});
	</script>
</head>
<body>
	
</body>
</html> 


There are incredible features.

Webstorm is nice too. It is well fitted for Node.js

RE: Free JavaScript editor

Other very good free editor for HTML, JavaScript,.. etc is PSPad

RE: Free JavaScript editor

Not an editor but additionally you might want to look into this JS autocompleter:
https://emilschutte.com/stackoverflow-autocomplete...

Just in case the function you try to programm is something that has already been solved on Stackoverflow forums, this autocompleter will generate thew code from the accepted / highest-rated answers.
Might be handy.

I have got to say that seems to be something of a rather dangerous precedent in "auto-complete" methods, as it makes it less likely the user will really learn how to program. At least currently they have to use Google and employ a bit of grey matter in figuring out what works best.

We really are attempting to breed future generations of programmers who are most definitely not evolved to survive in the real world if all they know is to "ask the audience" to find solutions.

RE: Free JavaScript editor

I agree. That is why I said "additionally". I did not want to encourage using that as a replacement.
Yet, here he is, asking the audience.
I'd surely be lost without such little extras.

Just a heads up that the current Apanta installer doesn't work on Windows 7 x64.


Not that it is competition for Visual Studio or anything like that of course, </cynicism> surprise
