Overall Satisfaction with Notepad++

Mostly everyone in my company uses Notepad++. It's an open source software which allows developers to code easily. It has all the plugins which one can download easily. As a developer, we don't need to write the entire code, because plugins make it simple to use the autocomplete features which completes the rest.
  • Open source software.
  • Variety of plugins.
  • Autocomplete and error handling functions are awesome.
  • Simple to use and easy to learn the software.
  • Debugging functionality is missing. It's important for a developer to debug their code while testing it.
  • Lots of plugins are not available for Windows 64 bit machines.
  • Some capabilities, like doing a word count, are missing.
  • It is being used to code instantly and helps us to deliver services immediately.
  • It's an open source plugin, so no issues with licensing.
  • Increases productivity without switching to different testing environments.
Notepad++ is easy to use. If you have used notepad it's a more advanced version of it. It has a lot of themes and plugins which you can download from the community page and are free. It's easier to build applications in Notepad ++ as it works with various environments. It helps in saving time during coding applications because of plugins.
It is useful for when you write less than 100,000 lines of code. It's not like an IDE, but it has all open source plugins, which are developed by the community and you can use to accomplish day to day tasks. It can be useful for code editing and text editing.
