Our Review About Notepad++
Being one of the great text & source editors you can find, it’s hard not to like it at first glance. Its minimalistic interface intertwined with the awesomely intuitive functions are definitely the most highlighting feature of this editor.
Diving a bit deep into the interface, it’s evident almost instantly that Notepad++ is just not your average text editor. It can go further than you usually expect from a simple text editor and more.
First of all, Notepad++ is more capable than people give credit for. Because of its powerful Scintilla editing component, Notepad++ can deliver instantaneous results without any hiccups. Moreover, It’s completely written in C++ (if you hadn’t figured it out already, this is the reason why the name has a ++ in with it) and uses Win32 API and STL.
Another great thing I noticed while using this text editor is that it constantly updates my routine to provide better optimization which is always a plus.
User & Eco-friendly Design
Seems odd to see those two words side by side right? Well, the whole interface definitely caught my attention the moment I started editing some basic source code from GitHub. So, that’s already a great start. But what amazed me the most is the eco-friendly initiative Notepad++ has taken in the background.
While many word processors can take too much energy on usage, Notepad++ throttles the CPU power so that the energy consumption is significantly reduced. Thus, resulting in a more habitable and sounder environment.
If you’re a developer like me, then this one source code editor would be more than enough for you. At least you won’t have any objections about not supporting your preferred programming language.
Customization & Plugin Support
Apart from being one of the most power-efficient and lightweight editors available, it delivers heavily on customization and plugins. From changing its appearance, fonts, and theme to installing additional plugins to integrate your other workflow seamlessly is easily a steal.
For me, it has been a breeze playing with the software in my spare time because it offers so much in such a small package. I changed my theme to dark with a tint of cyan which blends perfectly with my overall Windows theme.
Also, the plugins are completely customizable as well. I could easily change the check the current versions of installed plugins and their compatibility.
So, I definitely found the plugins and customization function pretty neat.
