I want to ask what is the best code editor tool for web development for PC?
I have been using Dreamweaver for years and I quite like it and comfortable with it as it offers everything (ie: connecting to backend server, ftp, organising folders, etc). However, i have been told to use Notepad++ or Sublime Text 2 by my web designer teacher. He says; professional web designers and developers believes Dreamweaver is not the way to go as since its notorious for creating messy HTML and CSS code. He believes that your code should look nice and tidy and Dreamweaver doesn't make your code look beautiful.
I don't believe him in a way as I have been developing websites for years using this tool. In fact, I started off learning to build websites using this tool.
But if that is the true case then I would start using other tools as he mentioned.
I just hope that they provide the same services (ie: FTP connectivity to backend server, uploading files, managing directory, subfolders to the backend server, etc).
Please advise. I am looking for a better perhaps professional alternative code editor tool beside Dreamweaver.
