Yes, I know that emacs and VI are as power-packed as anything I could ask for, but I'm looking for nice replacement for my long-time companion, EditPlus (or close). Features I'm looking for: - Remote open / built-in FTP - Syntax highlighting - Multiple file editing (ie tabs or projects) - Browser preview without much fuss - Templates & Macros
...that'll get me going. I've never been a fan of WYSIWYG editors so I'd like to stay away frm Quanta, Bluefish or Screem. I've been doing the SSH + VI thing, but it reminds me of mid-seventies :) Any pointers?
I use Nedit a lot, it has some of your requirements, but not all: - Syntax highlighting - Multiple file editing - ( global search and replace ) but not in tabs -- though it does do window splitting - Macros
Too bad you don't like Bluefish, it isn't really WYSIWYG and it has nearly all of the features you want minus an integrated FTP. It feels a lot less WYSIWYG like if you remove the HTML shortcut toolbar.
For nedit? Preference -> Default Settings -> Syntax Highlighting -> ON But then go to 'Syntax Highlight Patterns' in the same sub-menu and set your language mode -- there should be several to choose from. You may have to close Nedit and save setting then reopen it to get the changes to take affect.
