I go to college online and I'll admit I'm a little annoyed that my Web Dev professor makes us code using notepad and doesn't allow IDE's. I get the point but it's obnoxious, this isn't 2003.

    Perhaps they want to teach you about all the bugs in notepad. :-)

    I learnt in notepad. It teaches you to work out what is actually wrong with your code rather then an IDE just giving you a fix and you not understanding the actual problem.

    But I guess the world has moved on and everything should be simple 🤷‍♂️

    Notepad is good for understanding your mistakes. Later when you will be working on your project you will be able to find bugs fairly easily.

    You can ask for an upgrade. Install Notepad++.

    I had to write ,one flask (python file),two html files,two JS files.
    In paper and show it to the prof then write in gedit!
    Writing HTML was pain😔

    @lunorian possibly not but we submit the files in a zip folder. I suppose I could code it elsewhere but I would have to copy everything to a notepad file still and then make sure it all works properly still.

    Use sublime. Go to distraction free mode or hide sidebars and stuffs. Use notepad theme and black on white color scheme.

    @lunorian By searching for CRLF line endings will give him a hint :D

    +1 on sublime. You still have to use your brain but you get all the niceties like multiple cursors and quick find and regex search and replace
