EditPlus

Development Tools

The last programmers editor you will ever need!


Date : 2006-04-19
When I first ran across Edit+ I thought to myself 'great! yet another notepad replacement'. I am happy to say I have never been so wrong about a program before.

On first glance, Edit+ does resemble many other programmer-style editors that are out there. It has syntax highlighting for any number of languages, built in code-snippets for those who find that feature useful, and dozens of other similarly common features.

Where Edit+ shines for me though is in its ability to allow you to work on web code without having to FTP everything back and forth using any third party tools. Thats right, no cumbersome FTP to deal with.

When you open Edit+ you are presented with a clean workspace with only a directory-structure bar on the left with a drop down menu at the top of it. After configuring your server settings you simply pick the server from the drop down list and you can edit all your remote files DIRECTLY.

Sure, there are other programs that allow you to do remote editing, but how many of them make you define a project first? How many of them want a particular directory structure on the remote host? With Edit+ you dont need any of that. Its transparent FTP that lets you work directly with your code without having to fight with odd-ball configurations.

Other features of Edit+ include Line numbering, ruler, column selection, powerful search and replace with regular expressions, multiple undo/redo, spell checker, customizable keyboard shortcuts, Auto-complete and more.
