Finding a Text Editor

I finished CSS in Codecademy yesterday. The fancy resume I created for my final project wasn’t working or looking right, and yet I passed the section with flying colors. After spending some time googling my issue with minimal results, it was time to return to YouTube to refine my understanding of CSS. There are many helpful video tutorials on CSS, but there’s a little problem I keep running into: TextEdit isn’t cutting the mustard. In every video I watch, the teacher is using one snazzy text editor after another. I keep seeing useful features like highlighting, auto closing tags and preview. Me want! Notepad++ sounded great, but I couldn’t find a version for mac, which is what I’m using. But, aha! I found a resource to help with that. Mikes Massive Mess recommends a wonderful program called WineBottler which converts a number of Windows applications to mac. One such program is Notepad++! Yay! Thanks Mike!! Done and did. Everything is working beautifully.┬áNow I can finally use the free text editor I want and get back to business.
