Programmes for building websites

Hi I’m quite new to coding and i’m following the courses on here to build websites. I was just wondering which programmes are the best to build websites on. I originally had Dreamweaver and found that a good way of practising however it was expensive is there any others i should consider before reverting back to Dreamweaver? .

Thanks in advance.

I use atom for my coding. And then use the browser to see the progress.

I use visual studio code. I really like it

I’ve used both Atom and Visual Studio Code, and presently my preference is for VSC but with the Atom key-map extension. :slight_smile:

(Only kind of related, as I don’t know whether it’s still the case, but didn’t Dreamweaver used to be a WYSIWYG? )

I love VSC. The extensions make it. The live server extension allows you to see the website change in realtime. also simple things like auto closing tags, different color {}.
when you get into more advanced web certain extensions have snippets that add boilerplate code.

Thanks for the replies, I’ve been told about VSC is it easy to use for beginners?
