Notepad++ is a free source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages.
Based on the powerful editing component Scintilla, Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size. By optimizing as many routines as possible without losing user friendliness, Notepad++ is trying to reduce the world carbon dioxide emissions. When using less CPU power, the PC can throttle down and reduce power consumption, resulting in a greener environment.
Notepad++ is also a platform with 12 apps listed on AlternativeTo. Browse all 12 apps for Notepad++.

I use Notepad++, and have for years. I love it! Couldn't ask for a better text editor with some advanced features beyond the standard Notepad.
Fast ! And I dont have to save every time I close the APP.
The best standalone text editor I know. Its super quick startup is fantastic.
Now maybe I've missed some settings but for coding I prefer the autocompletion and autoformatting in Visual Studio - everyone has their own preference here.
I use it all the time for code editing for my home cleaning website and it works great.
It is simple and elegant.
I used to like Notepad++, but after closing the app, it remained in memory. And after a while I noticed I had several instances of Notepad++ hogging the computer's memory.
I installed other versions, tried on other computers, and the same problem happened. At the time it was apparently a known issue. But I switched to PSPad, and am very happy with it.
Bulky, confused plugin management, lack of plugin support on x64
This is Notepad++ not Plugin++ idiot
Simple but deep core functionality is good with lots to expand into. The autosave of documents on close is a little too good sometimes (15 unsaved docs tabs with random notes in sitting there...)
very good editing software, can be used instead of ide
I am satisfied
It is very fast, powerful and useful. It is one of the best applications one can get for Windows.
Notepad++ best editor software for webdesigning coding like html and java.

A nice lightweight text editor but I do wish it had more plugins
easiest way to just print some code quickly or edit some config file
