EditPlus Editor's Review

Edit text based files with this awesome Windows-based editor.

Sometimes, a word processor is just too much pomp for the circumstance. Having the right tool for the right job is important. My grandfather, a master carpenter, pounded this into my head as a child. This is one of the reasons why I really like EditPlus for coding and other programmatic tasks. It’s a text editor for Windows.

EditPlus is a Windows-based text, HTML, PHP, Java editor and Hex Viewer. Its a good Notepad replacement, but it also offers many powerful features for programmers and Web page authors.

EditPlus features syntax highlighting for HTML, PHP, Java, C/C++, CSS, ASP, Perl, JavaScript, VBScript, Python and Ruby on Rails. it can also be extended for other programming languages based on custom syntax files. It contains a seamless web browser for previewing HTML pages, and contains support for FTP commands for uploading local files directly to your FTP server.

Other EditPlus features include a Hex Viewer, HTML toolbar, user tools, line number, ruler, URL highlighting, auto completion, clip text, column selection, powerful search and replace, multiple undo/redo, spell checker, and customizable keyboard shortcuts.

Pro’s: Versatile, coding features, built in browser and support for FTP commands

Con’s: Expensive for a text editor

Conclusion: EditPlus is a decent text editor and programming tool. Its coding features make it a great choice for coding work and many of them will come in handy. As a text editor, it’s a bit on the pricey side at $35USD as of this writing. The value, however, to individuals that do a lot of coding is clear. If you're a contract programmer and need to provide your own tools or if you're a serious amateur, EditPlus is a great choice.
