hi all, noob at this. are code editors just notepad but with text highlighting, file opening, and interpreters which you use a terminal application to execute?

    they are so much more than that. Builder for example has a full tree view of your project, instant compiling (well, instant in the sense that the compile button is always accessible and you don’t have to leave the application to do it), live preview for markup languages, Git integration, unit tests, profiling, and several other things I can’t remember right now. so no, an IDE is an entirely different beast from a text editor
