In this article, we’ve gathered links to many different text editors used for different purposes. Typically, Vi is the default text editor in Linux operating systems and it’s a keyboard intensive program with no graphical user interface (GUI). GetDiz is a Notepad replacement for Windows that allows you to edit many text files quickly from within Windows Explorer and has enhanced functionality for dealing with DIZ and NFO files. PSPad not only supports syntax highlighting, but also matching bracket highlighting for most popular programming languages. The cross-platform (Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X) editor, jEdit, supports syntax highlighting for over 200 programming languages and auto indent, as well as a differencing utility, an FTP browser, and block selecting. Programmer’s Notepad for Windows supports syntax highlighting using schemes, both built-in and user-defined, code folding and outlining, a tabbed interface with multi-level split views, and the ability to export to HTML (using CSS) and RTF. If you like the Vi editor in Linux, but prefer a graphical editor that also serves well as a programmer’s text editor, Editra and Komodo Edit are good options. Angel Writer is a small rich text editor for Windows with a high performance rate that allows you to easily create impressive documents. If you get distracted when you write by the plethora of features in text editors and word processors, you might want to try one of the so-called “minimalist” text editors out there.
If you want a simple text editor with the ability to count down from a set word count, try yEdit2 for Windows. Steganos LockNote is a small, simple method for securely storing chunks of information in files.
There’s even an editor that’s meant for writing novels, called yWriter5, available for Windows and Linux. Once you find a text editor you like to replace Notepad, you can actually replace Notepad in Windows 7 with your preferred text editor. Lori Kaufman is a writer who likes to write geeky how-to articles to help make people's lives easier through the use of technology.
I’m curious about yWriter, and the author does say that it can be run from a portable drive. Since you pointed out the novel writing app, which is a little too ambitious, I think, for the scope of the article, you might also have mentioned Wiki on a Stick.
This will give me some options to look at that will let me keep some of my more commonly-used passwords close by, but keep them more secure than trying to hide a notepad file in amongst the rest of my stuff. An example is Ctrl+Q; This comments the line based on the language you are currently writing in. Nice list, my personal favorite: bluefish, CSS and HTML oriented, but with programming capabilities. I’ve been using Note Tab Light for many years and it is quite full featured and comes in a more powerful paid for version. There are lots of them out there but when you are working on hundreds of servers and workstations and need to write something down quick you always know notepad will be there on any windows system.

PHP Editors also having the great feature like PHP debugger allows to execute PHP scripts incrementally, watching the values of all variables in every line. I like the ftp functions (but they are not as good as html-kit for the moment, my previous editor). Putting serious IDEs like Eclipse or NetBeans and enhanced text editors like Notepad2 or Notepad++ into one group?
I use Komodo Edit, free and extremely powerful plus uses the Mozilla framework and has community developed addons. Almost anyone (with or without experience) can make a good video with a few basic guidelines and the right software.

Jahshaka is a freeware program built for Windows OS and many distributions of Linux users which is a media management and playback, compositing, video and audio editing and effects application. Thought to work well with cross platforms, however, as an open-source application, it’s not going to run perfectly yet, and so its not yet highly recommended.

Every operating system comes with a default, basic text editor, but most of us install our own enhanced text editors to get more features. You can use text editors for basic text editing and taking notes, writing programming code, producing LaTeX documents, writing a book, among many other uses.
A good text editor for Windows that has hotkeys available for its 312 text-processing functions, innovative features, and timesaving tools is TED Notepad, which is also available as a portable program. Most support syntax highlighting for many programming languages, multiple document editing, and are extendable with plugins. It is also extendable using plugins and macros, and there are hundreds of plugins and macros available through the built-in plugin manager feature. They both provide Vi emulation, as well as support for syntax highlighting in many programming languages and code folding. They can be used as text editors, but they have more formatting features than simple text editors.
It has advanced document layout options such as tables, bullets, numbered lists, images, styles, footnotes, and endnotes. They are “no-frills” editors that either don’t offer any formatting features or many of the other features of modern word processors, and even third-party text editors, or the features are hidden until you want them. There are several text editors that either include encryption as a feature or are specially designed for securely storing text. For example, if you purchase a download-only program, you can use LockNote to store the product key or serial number that goes with that program in the same folder, so you always know where to find it.
This article has generated some curiosity and I’m going to look at some of the windows offerings. Loading 400 MB database dump file takes expectably long (as long as copying the file to another disk) and then all keystrokes are prompt and swift as if only a few KB of text was being edited. When I switched to linux for my thesis I tried out several editors but in the end I installed notepad++ with wine (though that makes it slightly unstable). The closest I ever come to needing one is to strip formatting, such as text color, from something I copied to the clipboard, such as when copying text from one webpage and pasting into an email. TextEdit, the simple word processor that comes free with every Mac OS X (any version) is more than adequate. This is related to PHP programmers, few days ago we had provided some best websites to Learn PHP online and also today we come with some best PHP editors for Windows.
Editor is most valuable thing for every developer to create valuable and best web applications.
With modern video editing software, you can create and share your own videos very easily on YouTube or other video sharing sites. You can easily record your screen or even record your best gaming videos online and capture them in real time.
It allows you to edit video files in different formats including AVI, MPEG, MP4, FLV, SWF, MOV and WMV.
It comes with a clean interface layout and uses keyboard and mouse shortcuts for a faster and easier operation but may not be very easy to use. Other key features of this software includes custom output video width and height, customizable speed and direction change for video and audio, ability to slave effect and compositing controls to audio wave forms with unlimited tracks and sub-composites. If you don’t have any experience with video editing yet, make sure you don’t mess with Blender. The concept behind Wax is for users who loves to do video compositing coupled with special effects so users can create their videos perfectly the way the want it with ease at any time.
Currently, Wax can work as a plug-in app with Sony Vegas, Pure Motion Edit Studio and Adobe Premiere. Plus the unlimited video and audio tracks with top-down compositing and many compositing modes though audio features are quite limited at this time).
It is however not totally a freeware program and you need to purchase the licensed version to fully use its features.
Another feature is it allows users to convert its AVI clips into image files like BMP files and BMP files to AVI or even animated GIFs. The ability to share videos online or instantly also sets back from other video editing programs. The program lets you copy, paste and fine tune selections and also supports joining and splitting of video or movie files. It has claimed to be fully-feature, offering many different effects and can edit up to 256 video, audio, and still image clips with up to 64 effects. With a  simple drag and drop of your video clips into the timeline, apply special effects and transitions and thought to be one of the fastest video stream processors. It is also a DVD burner that can be used as a standalone video file for enjoying on web and other portable devices. However, these software are mostly compatible with Windows and performs most of the basic video editing functionalities. Some software may only perform simple, get-it-all done tasks such as slideshows, cutting and trimming, converting or burning DVDs. Plus it becomes even harder when you are using complex software that you don’t know the functions of it tied with a not user-friendly interface making your video editing even more complicated. PSPad also easily integrates with the free version of the free version of the TopStyle CSS editor.
Without all the fancy features staring you in the face, you can concentrate on the task of writing. Notepad++, mentioned in the Programmer’s Text Editors section above, allows you to add encryption functionality using the SecurePad plugin, which is available through the built-in Plugin Manager. However, yWriter5 does not suggest plot ideas, character names, or write any part of your novel for you. It’s not a proper file editor as it keeps all its info within, but for a project like a novel, a wiki is not a bad idea. Had versions for every platform I needed … Windows, Linux, Maemo, so it is still used. Well I know that most text editors “are able to” open big files, but have you ever tried to do it? In our Last article, we already described that PHP is a widely used server-side scripting language that was basically designed for web applications.
There are many great software packages which can provide you with the tools you need to capture, edit and share your videos around the world. It runs smoothly in all Windows versions so if you’re running Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Ezvid might be the perfect software for you. It supports subtitles along with the video and able to save in different types of movie formats including MP4, MPEG2, FLV and HD videos for your Zune, Pocket PC, iPod, iPad and lots more. If you need real time editing, then you need this software as it is a cut-based editor with no timeline. It supports many movie file types including AVI, DVD compatible MPEG files, MP4, and ASF but using a variety of codecs. It has a clean and fully customizable interface which allows you to change and adapt and redistribute the layout of all UI components and tools. It supports modules for color correction, keying, and tracking, and an array of media support.
It is thought to be fast and easy to use however it does not work well with 64 bit Windows. It allows you to create family movies and slideshows, fun motion animations, even video casting or screen recordings of presentations, and more. As a video joiner, you users may join many videos in various formats at one time.  It also supports previewing the source video and target file, you can watch the video in the preview window. It is also capable of slowing down video playback or reverse playback of video clips and supports sharing of videos online.


The advantage of using offline video editing software is priceless as you can work on your video edits without the need to connect to the Internet anywhere at any time. Komodo Edit supports background syntax checking and contains a toolbox with shell command integration, macros, and code snippets. You can extend AbiWord with a variety of plugins, which can be selected when you install AbiWord. I just double click on its icon in the task bar, paste to the blank post it note, copy it again, then drop the note.
It is capable of importing any types of video formats including AVI, WMV, MOV, MPEG4, MP4, FLV, and lots more. Video easy can also customize or personalize videos adding some background music, record voice, adjust brightness and color with the added ability to preview the edited video allowing some changes that could help improve the quality of the video. However, functions are limited in this software and doesn’t have much special effects like it can’t easily share videos in YouTube. It comes with a unique user-friendly interface with a simple drag and drop of video files and previews video in real time. You can use it for just a period of days, but to renew and to use it for an extended period of time, you need to subscribe to its plan. You can download the full suite of movie making tools plus its 39 content packs at 225 USD so it’s quite expensive. However, unlike most other basic video editing software, this software offers very limited in its functionality and features. It is thought to be easy to use, with cool video effects such as warping, color restore, ability to reduce noise. It is compiled as a 32-bit Windows and thus makes its major drawbacks from other users who are already using 64-bit Windows.
It also supports Matrosska files and allows cutting off several portions of a movie at one time. With Windows Movie Maker 2.6, you can also create slideshow of pictures, you can add music from any sources and able to save movies in various formats. It can also join multiple video and audio clips together with a converting speed that is fast with an excellent output quality.
That said, know first what you want to do and try to find video editing software that best suits what you need.
You can also add Org-mode to Emacs, which is a personal information management and outlining tool. It also supports syntax folding and is highly customizable through plugins using the included plugin manager. Plus it captures your gaming recording in HD and uploads it to Youtube instantly without hassle. This in turn pushes the users’ imagination as it products a more creative way of video editing experience. But it’s packed with massive library of characters, props and animations with an explorative game-style interface.
If you really want to do more than just cutting and encoding, then Avidemux is not the right software to use. It has a clean interface like most other software does but it’s not very easy to use and does not support instant sharing of videos to Internet and not really a good one to recommend for beginners.
It has the capability to capture video in one-frame-per-minute (web camera) option, with a 2 Gb file size limit. It also has the ability to get rid of all commercials in your movie and supports multilingual interface from English, Chinese, , Finnish, French, Italian, Danish, German Russian and Spanish, and more.
However, when you’re a Vista user, you need to disable first the 3D Aero for you to use Windows Movie Maker.
It supports Windows operating systems, Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP with latest service packs installed (32-bit or 64-bit editions) but the file size is quite big, around 1.33Gb, and its only free to try for about 30 days. Like other video editing programs listed here, VideoPad works well with Microsoft Windows OS, from Windows 7, XP to Windows 8.
If you prefer text editors with GUIs, Vim and gEdit are both good options and are available. It comes with features like crop, straighten, rotate, and flip ?your photos, remove red eye, one-touch adjustment for brightness, exposure and shadows and also tools to adjust the exposure, contrast, clarity, vibrance and more. Other software does not support this, in fact, some needs other software to convert videos to a usable format supported by YouTube, but with Ezvid, you no longer go through this hassle as you just have to click the “upload button” and that’s it.
It is a shareware and so once subscription has expired, users need to renew subscription to allow extended use. Aside from the video editing features, it can also burn files into DVD disc, create slideshows from photos. It offers an unlimited number of effects and transitions with over 300 customizable 2D & 3D SMPTE transitions with masking and 100 customizable video effects each with configurable parameters.
Plus, the program crashes on Windows after loading a video, and so for Windows users, make sure you disable openGL in Avidemux’ preferences. It can send your videos to printer or you can heavy compress it and allows you to post to your webpage. However, you can fully use its packed features if you buy the licensed version at around 69.95USD. It is not a freeware program, its a shareware and so you have to purchase it to fully use the feature it offers.
