  1. Visual Studio Code
  2. Sublime Text
  3. Atom
  4. Brackets
  5. VIM
  • Emmet Abbreviations — a shortcut feature to make writing HTML and CSS codes faster. For example, there is a shortcut to create the whole HTML file’s important tags, one line of code creating multiple lines in seconds.
  • IntelliSense — an auto-complete code feature. This feature suggests a list of suggestions you type your code. It is a great feature to improve productivity.
  • Built-in Git — this feature lets you use Github to share your source code and collaborate with co-developers right within your editor. You can also perform several Git commands such as commit, pull, push, rebase, publish, and check for changes within the file.
  • Auto-Completion — a time-saving feature comparable to Visual Studio’s IntelliSense feature. It provides suggestions and auto-completes the code you are trying to type.
  • Snippets — a smart feature that inserts lines of codes for you — like the Emmet Abbreviations.
  • Sublime Merge — it is a feature that promises “when you use Sublime, you use Git.” It gives you the ability to search for command line integration, specific commits, code and file history, and syntax highlighting. It also helps you solve errors before merging change by comparing code side-by-side.
  • Smart autocompletion — this is a common smart feature that helps you code faster by selecting the code you want to insert from the suggestion popup as you type.
  • File System Browser — this feature provides easy browsing and opening a single file, a whole project, or multiple projects in a single window.
  • Code folding — this feature allows you to see the overview of the code file’s structure you’re working on. It simplifies what is shown on your screen by hiding blocks of codes like functions and loops.
  • Inline Editors — this feature lets you open a window into the code you care about most without jumping between file tabs.
  • Live Preview — this gives you a real-time connection to your browser. You instantly see the changes you make to CSS and HTML on screen.
  • Preprocessor Support — Work with preprocessors in a whole new way. We know how important preprocessors are to your workflow.
  • Marks — this feature lets you jump back and forth between open files using keyboard letters to set a mark to a specific place you want to come back to.
  • Visual mode — it is a feature that helps you manipulate a chunk of text a lot easier. You can move a sentence, change a phrase, edit multiple lines of text, indent a set of lines, and more.
  • Folding — Like Atom, this feature allows you to focus only on the code file’s structure you’re working on. It only shows you the essential blocks on your screen.
