Don’t get me wrong, there’s a time and a place for Notepad++. There was a point in time where I preached how amazing the editor was for all purposes, even for PowerShell! That time is over. As our code increases in complexity, we need a code editor that can keep up with the workload. With Notepad++ and other basic text editors, we have a much harder time doing any code troubleshooting or any debugging on the fly. Yes, there are linters available (a “linter” is an add-on which helps look for basic coding sytnax errors) but beyond that there’s not very much it can help us with.
