What other editing tools do you use?

Post by Albert Wiersch » Fri Mar 04, 2016 11:43 am

Do you use another editing tool besides CSE HTML Validator? If so, then which one?

I'm working on our integration page:
https://www.htmlvalidator.com/htmlval/integration.html

Many editing tools (like EmEditor, Notepad++, TextPad, UltraEdit, etc.) support running external commands. Some can even display a tool's output in an 'Output Window', allowing for even better integration.

If you are using one of these editing tools then you may be able to create a command to open the current document in CSE HTML Validator, where you can press F6 to check and validate it. After the document is checked and corrected, just hit Ctrl+S to save the document, Ctrl+W to close it, and then continue editing in your main editing tool of choice (it should ask you if you want to reload the document with the changes).

So if you do use another tool as your primary editor, which one is it? If possible I will add information to the above "integration" page to create a custom command to improve the workflow between CSE HTML Validator and your editor.

I also wanted to mention NoteTab integration.

Here is more information about NoteTab from the company that develops it:
* One of the fastest HTML editors on the market
* One of the most versatile text editors on the market
* Large library of Clipbooks made by NoteTab users for NoteTab users: http://www.notetab.com/libraries
More information about NoteTab:

My main editing/creation tool is Adobe Dreamweaver CC. I normally use CSE HTML Validator just for validating files. It would be great to have complete integration between the two, but I don't think they make the software available to developers, or anyone, without a monthly subscription.

Dreamweaver 11.5 here. Not a fan of subscriptions so never made it to the next version. Also use CSE mainly for validation and Notepad++ for config file editing.
