What program can i use to write a javascript code in?

There are many people which want to start learning javascript web programming, but they firstly ask themselves... "what program can i use to write a javascript code in?" This very popular scripting language can be written in almost every text editor. You can even write it in common notepad that come with windows, but don't do that, why would you when there are some better text editors that are more specialized for web development and therefore for writing a javascript. Features that you might need for writing javascript are code highlighting, auto complete and code hinting. Code highlighting is a feature that highlights the different parts of codes like functions, variables, etc. so you can see your code better and know what is what.

Let me recommend some good but free programs where you can write as many code as you want without any problems. Firstly I will suggest you to use a editor that would most developers on the world recommend. It is a Notepad++, which have features I mentioned above for huge amount of programming languages. It's also extendable with various plugins that you can find on the internet for free. If you maybe have a budget to spend on this and want a bigger program to use for a web development then the best choice is absolutely Adobe Dreamweaver which is professional web development software from Adobe with high quality and long tradition. Any of these w will work, but if you are absolute beginner then just go with the Notepad++, it is great for beginners and people who are trying to learn javascript or some other web programming language. I can give you links to dozens of other free editors but I am sure that Notepad++ is the best choice for the beginners, especially if you are in the process of learning. Just make sure to always save your javascript files with a .js extension, and you can include it with the <script></script> tag into your html page. Have fun!
