Introductory To Coding Editors
You’ve probably noticed already that coding in Notepad can be a little bit sore on the eyes. Luckily for us, there are coding editing programs that can allow us to program our websites a lot easier.
The example that I’m going to be using is called Notepad++.
This coding editor is free, and you can download it from their website, as I’m about to show you here.
Once you have Notepad++ installed on your computer, we can begin to edit our webpages by right clicking them and selecting “edit” with Notepad++.
Doesn’t that look a little bit easier to read?
Let’s try to add a few more headline elements just to add a little bit more code to our webpage.
Let’s add a H2 element and an H3 element as well. As you might have already guessed, an H2 is smaller than an H1, and an H3 is smaller than an H2.
As you’re writing out your elements, be sure to add an opening tag and a closing tag as well.
Let’s go ahead and save our webpage and see how this looks visually in our web browser. As we can see, our H1 is the largest, and our H3 has the smallest text on the page.
There are paid options for coding editors that you can look at later, but for now, coding with Notepad++ will work just fine for us.
