    "Simple, clean, easy to use editor - and it's Free"

    March 18, 2013   |   By PSSnyder

    Version: ConTEXT 0.98.5

    Pros

    ConText is a simple, free, text editor that feels more like a basic word processor than a complex code writer. This is an editor that does not get in the way, it lets you be creative without taking your attention away from the flow of the code. It reminds you when you make syntax errors, without interrupting your work.

    Cons

    ConText is very simple, more like Apple Pages than MS Word. that means the user needs to be more alert to what they are doing than they would if they were using a code generator or other interactive visual code writer.

    Summary

    Which editor is best is a very subjective question. Most programmers have a favorite editor, but few could tell you why their choice is better than other editors. I like and use the excellent Notepad++ when I think I need a lot of bells and whistles to help me work on a complex program. But when I know what I want to get done and simply want an editor that keeps me from making careless errors - I enjoy using ConText to write code or HTML.
    Everyone needs a simple editor like ConText as well as a Notepad++ I wish I could say that there are code generating tools that write as good code as a manual editor and a fairly good programmer can. I generated and managed a few HTML websites with FrontPage and then Web Expressions 4. When I looked back at the generated code it was literally ten times more bloated than it needed to be, so I used ConText and Notepad++ to prune the excess. Both are great choices.
