Text Editor 'Bloodlines'

| Comments

Following yesterday’s Hacker News discussion on TextMate 2.0, Ruben Schade posted about his text editor “bloodline” - the text editors he has used over the years. I thought I’d post mine too.

Name Platform Notes
Notepad Windows Standard Notepad, with all its flaws.
Notepad++ Windows Finally, syntax highlighting and multiple Undos.
Gvim Windows It took me a while to learn, but has really paid off.
Vim Linux Unlike Windows’ Cmd.exe, the Linux console is pretty effective and great for text editing.

My bloodline isn’t as long as most people’s. I didn’t waste any time in finding the greatest text editor in the universe. :)
