To develop in Javascript, a text editor is enough, but to code pro, you must use a sophisticated editor.
We have chosen the five best IDE (Integrated Development Environment) Javascript.
Free or paid, it's up to you. The five text editors presented here offer a wide variety of functions and settings. To choose one, the best is to try them all. A text editor is a bit like a smartphone: nothing is worth a grip to know if the one we think to adopt really suits us :

  1. Notepad ++
  2. UltraEdit
  3. EditPad Lite
  4. EditPlus
  5. TextPad

Concerning the choice, we recommend the use of Notepad ++, as it is free and easy to use.
