CoffeeCup HTML Editor

My typical use is to edit HTML and CFM pages from prior projects, and use them to create new ones. So, I rarely use the tools for designing pages provided in this application. I have found the ability to preview a page very useful. I am aware of numerous features in this editor, that simpler editors would not provide. It has proven to be a great fit for my use.

This is an absolute must have for any IT professional to have in their toolkit, especially if there's a possibility of utilizing programming languages. If you have to create or modify scripts, or even do basic HTML editing, this software is for you. I would think that users outside of IT wouldn't have much of a need for this software, though.

Notepad++

  • Text Manipulation - You can easily edit and reorganize large sets of text. It's an amazing text editor.
  • Plug in Support - There are so many plugins. My favorite is the difftool. Takes two files and shows you were the differences are in each one.
  • Multiple Language Support - Supports the syntax for many languages, some that don't have IDE support like Visual Studio. Helps with writing code.

Cons

CoffeeCup HTML Editor

  • Maybe I could list a con if my use of it was more diverse and consistent. It does everything and more for my purposes, and in ways I Iike very much.

Notepad++

  • It is only available for Windows (sorry, Linux and Mac users!).
  • It lacks some of the features of higher-order integrated development environments or code editors like Visual Studio Code, such as integration with Git or other versioning tools.
  • It works best for small text files and lighter tasks such as indenting text blocks you copy and paste from elsewhere. You could use this for all your programming needs, but there are better options out there for a primary tool for that purpose.

I haven't needed to utilize any support related to Notepad++. I guess this is a good thing because I found it to be quite intuitive. There are almost infinite features you can tweak and plugins you can download but I haven't had to do that because Notepad++ is really good right out of the box.

I have evaluated UltraEdit. At $99 for an individual license, UltraEdit is quite expensive. Notepad++ is FREEAdditionally, UltraEdit has a much larger footprint and is therefore relatively slow to load. For these reasons, I choose to use Notepad++ as my primary editor

Return on Investment

CoffeeCup HTML Editor

  • This editor certainly saves time in reducing my need to know and/or check coding minutiae.

  • The reduced time it takes to read and analyze code due to Notepad++'s features (color-coding syntax, automatic formatting), has increased personal productivity of all users.
  • Notepad++ being free and not requiring licenses means the department budget is not negatively impacted whatsoever.
  • The relatively small size of the application allows for a quick install. Additionally, the innocuous nature of the app makes it an easy candidate for installation for those in organizations where you are not an administrator and need help-desk approval in order to install applications.
