    recommended javascript development environment?

    hi, im new to javascript, and programming on the whole, what software do you all use for composing code?

    this seems to me like somewhat of a common question, but i did a search using the search function and couldnt find any threads on this. sorry if i was being inept and if this question really has been asked a lot before. in that case, help is still greatly appreciated though.

    There are thousands of alternatives - generally the same editor you use to edit your HTML and CSS will also handle JavaScript.

    If your computer is running Windows then you can use Notepad - although a better editor will add colour coding to your content making it easier to spot errors. Notepad++ is a free download that adds syntax colour coding support. CSE HTML Validator will as well and also adds a built in HTML validator.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    Another worthwhile option is Coffee Cup HTML Editor.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
