What do you "code" in?

Recommended Posts

Just a general question, what do you do your exports in mainly? HTML, RTF, etc...

 

I'm mainly doing them in HTML using Atom from Atom.io (A VERY nice code editor I might add)

I've just been using Notepad++ for my export templates.  It's a nice solid editor that I use when I don't feel like using an IDE or in my case spinning up a VM for development.  I do all of my development in VMs at home now, I find that it just makes things easy for me...I don't even think I have an IDE installed on my base machine anymore!

Any decent text editor. I have several IDE's (Visual Studio, VS Code,   Clion, IntelliJ) that I could use, but html templates are so trivial that it's not worth the bother for me. 

 

I like Notepad++ as well; I've been using that on my windows boxes for years.

Partly the reason I ask is I've seen a good number of how to questions on here. I'm thinking of doing a thing called "Hero Bits"... not full code just samples on how to do different things - my main languages (as a web developer) is HTML/CSS/PHP/JavaScript. I'd want to do it if there was enough people interested and I'd prefer to use things that anyone can get ahold of for free or easily (i.e. Atom, Brackets, etc)...and since Atom seems to code in pretty much ANYTHING...

I’ve been teaching myself RTF so I can make printable character sheets that are discrete pages without all the HTML printing problems. But what I found most problematic was figuring out what all the elements mean when doing the code. I basically spent days in trial and error trying things out. A list of the elements is provided in the HD documentation, but a glossary would be most helpful, at least for beginners like me.

I think this would be an excellent project for someone with your skill set.  You would be hailed as a Hero, 😀, of the HD templates if you could do this.

I was thinking last night why not use the Notes[1-5] area for custom CSS for the character. yeah it'd depend on an html/css sheet; but that's where my mind is at right now.

I do something similar on notes tab 5...for instance on this template
