in Windows I'm using Komodo & Notepad++ for coding HTML, CSS etc. In Ubuntu, what's the best editor I can use? Thanks :)
My personal favorite for web programming would have to be Brackets.
It has support and syntax highlighting for many, many languages, and has plenty of awesome features.
It has an awesome interface that's really easy to use, along with a whole raft of features, like over 100 extensions accessible right from within a built-in Extension Manager, live-preview which allows you to see the changes you make right away – no reloading the page any more, quick-edit that allows you to edit the CSS for the current tag without changing files, tag completion, and a bunch more.
Granted, you have to have Chrome (or Chromium, that works too) to use the Live Preview, but that is probably one of the best features. Basically, you can tweak a bit of code within the page's code and you can see that change as soon as you complete the code line.
Here’s a video, albeit a bit outdated, that provides a basic introduction to Brackets and its features.
You can add a PPA to install Brackets get automatic updates for it via:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/brackets sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install brackets
Bluefish is great - it supports HTML, CSS, JS and much more besides. Also supports tag completion , multi-threading & documenting etc. You can install it from the repos using:
sudo apt-get install bluefish
