Best Javascript and jQuery editor?

Recommended Posts

I have been programming in javascript and jQuery for a while now but I haven't found a good editor for these languages.

I have tried notepad++, netBeans, Visual Studio and Aptana Studio and so far netBeans has been the best pick.

Java has multiple editors with great support, C# and VB.net has Visual Studio and it feels like javascript has been left without a good IDE. I want to have a editor which can autocomplete methods and with support for jQuery. Is there such a tool?

 

What do you use?

Have you tried Visual Studio 2012? I realise its in RC at the moment, but one of the major improvements is javascript support due to its emphisis on building apps for windows 8 and metro

I just use notepad++, it does actually have "custom auto-completion".

 

However to be honest, its not the end of the world.

 

In regards to jquery, as wonderful as it is. If you really want to leverage the power of JavaScript. Try doing it in raw JavaScript whenever possible.

I much prefer the Library in JQuery though.. Powerful yet easy

I mostly use Textpad or Notepad++ because I don't look for fancy features in editors. On the same subject, has anyone tried Yaldex? It looks like a decent Javascript editor which also happens to be free.

I have used multiple editors when I first started out and the first thing I looked for was simplicity and good design (for my eye candy standards). I tried Visual Studio, and though it had a good design, it wasn't simple. There's just so many buttons!
I then tried Netbeans. Netbeans was okay, but when I heard about Eclipse and tried the latter, it turned out to be much better in terms of both design and simplicity. So I would suggest you give Eclipse a try.

In my opinion sublime text 2 is the best, since it autocompletes most functions and it also has a dropdown list, that's really nice when you are not sure about a command. I also like that you can change the theme of it easily, because my eyes start to hurt when I look at a bright screen for too long. That's why I use one of the darker themes.
