Top 3 Best Text Editors for Programmers | Battle Of The Text Editors | By PaperTronics

Welcome Programmers! Today, I was wondering about the importance of Right tools to perform any required action in life. And, While programming - we need good programming tools too. Which help us in Creating Beautiful and innovative code, with less effort. So, Today we're gonna be talking about Which Text Editor is the Best for Batch Programming out of them all? 

As a programmer myself, sometimes I scratch my head thinking which text editor should I use? Should I use Sublime Text which has a beautiful UI? Should I use Notepad++ which has awesome features? Should I use Advance BAT To EXE Converter which has all those extra options for my program? If you're like me and struggle hard to find a decent text editor then this article is for you!

Sublime Text:

The reason Sublime Text was included in this Battle is because it's one of the most efficient Text editors out there for programmers. It supports many languages. You'll find many special features in this one-of-a-kind Text Editor such as Distraction Free mode, Macro recording etc. This is the main reason why many Batch Programmers (including me) out there prefer Sublime Text for coding.


Notepad++ is one of the most famous text editor for programmers. It offers a beautiful UI, and also has some unique features like Running of program directly from the editor and using plugins to adjust Notepad++ to your liking that are definitely gonna impress the programmer inside you.

Advanced BAT to EXE Converter:

Advanced BAT to EXE Converter is a combination of a compiler and text editor. It doesn't support other languages than Batch. It contains special commands like getting a mouse click in CMD and Hiding/Un-Hiding an open window that you can insert in your Batch program. It also allows you to compile multiple files together in a single .exe file and change the icon of you Batch program. It contains tons of other beneficial features. I can't mention them here coz' if I did you'd be reading the article for 2 hours :D

  1. Without appearing to be rude, where is the paid-free-free comparison. I myself use sublime text though but still i don't think it would be free forever.

    1. Oops! I forgot the paid version. Will probably include it in the next battle. I think it'll be free because if it goes paid then it'll have a huge effect on its popularity.
