Free Script Editor

 HTML Editor, Source Code Editor with the features you've always dreamt of.
 

 



 

Free Script Editor is a tool aimed at web developers. It will be an ideal choice for programmers working mainly with PHP and HTML, because it comprises all the necessary functions for working with these languages. It is a rational substitution for the standard Notepad. Free Script Editor lets you open text files of an unlimited size, occupies little space on the hard disk and it takes no time to run it.

The editor highlights the source code syntax of 30 programming languages, such as HTML, PHP, CSS, SQL, Perl, Shell and others. On opening a file, the program will select the necessary syntax highlighting depending on the file extension. There is a special editor incorporated into the program, which allows you to add syntax highlighting for virtually any programming language.

With Free Script Editor, files are instantly opened through the context menu by right-clicking the mouse, which will save a lot of time and make the work most efficient. The program’s possibility to be closed by a single click of the ESC button will also facilitate the work, especially when it is necessary to open many files.

The program lets PHP and HTML programmers quickly get help on PHP functions and operators, HTML tags and CSS elements: the integrated reference system will display a detailed context help article when you simply press F1 on a keyword.

When a PHP function is entered, a hint with the description of the parameters is displayed – that will keep you from consulting the documentation. To see the hint again, use the Ctrl + Shift + Space hot key combination.

The example of a hint for PHP function:

PHP Hints

If you have forgotten the name of a PHP function or of an HTML tag, just press Ctrl + Space, get a list of options, choose the necessary one and press Enter to insert it into the editor automatically.

Integration with the web server will let you test scripts right in the editor window using F12 key or the "Preview on Server" tab in the lower corner of the window.

Use customizable hot key combinations for easy access to the program’s functions.
