Every Rainmeter user need text editor, so which is best according to you?
Reply telling us why, and if you use plugins which ones?

Suggest other text editors, i'll add them in pool.

I like having multiple windows at once and that makes Notepad a no-brainer for me. I found Notepad++ to fussy with the colouring, settings and tabs tbh...

I use modified Notepad2 (with code folding and some other small tweaks).
Another change comparing to normal release is my custom dark scheme (Based on obsidian theme though).

Why? Becouse i knew it long time before i even heard of Rainmeter so I'm simply used to it, and I appreciate it's simplicity and yet powerfull enough features.

Another great editor is Sublime Text, especially with MerlinTheRed's Rainmeter Package, which I would recommend to any new user. It makes coding nice and simple.

Speaking of Rainmeter exclusive code highlighting and some other related funcionality, you should take a look also at Notepad++ and poiru's RainLexer plugin

Just try one of these if you haven't already, and you will want to see Standard Windows Notepad burn. :twisted:

Ditto...
Notepad++
RainLexer plugin

Sublime Text looks nice, but a $60 text editor had better make me breakfast in the morning...

Oooh.. Seems like adding another text editor in pool cleared it from votes..

Last time I checked statistics was something like:
Windows Notepad: 1
Notepad2: 1
Notepad++: 8
Sublime Text: 7

But please vote again.. Sorry for inconvenience..
PS. Happy New Year :)

NoteTabPro with a Rainmeter Quickbook, the Rainmeter Manual installed.

Still working on a Syntax highlighter for it, but it works extremely well - highly recommended.

SciTE with minimal syntax highlighting.
no, nothing fancy here, i'm just used to it. cross-platform support is a bonus.
font: Adobe Source Code Pro
color scheme:Zenburn
