<< How To | Software: Notepad++

Notepad++

Lightweight but extremely advanced text editor.

I use this app for everything! From simple todo lists, to coding in depth JSON for Bedrock addons, it's versatile, lightweight and extremly user friendly.

You can expand on it's existing features with plugins to really help improve your workflow when coding in JSON.

Not only is this tool very easy to use, it's also great for using Find and Replace functions, comparing two files and formatting your JSON.

Notepad++ is a free (as in “free speech” and also as in “free beer”) source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GNU General Public License.
