When you have to write code using your favourite language, you need a software. Your have three options here, use a primitive text editor like Notepad which provides no features whatsoever for a coder, or use a full-fledged IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Problem with IDE is; there is some learning curve plus they are not free most of the times. But there is a third option, use a text editor with just enough features that will make your life easier but will not make your wallet lighter.
There are multiple such text editors like, Notepad++, Komodo Edit, Brackets, Atom, Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code. Visual Studio Code is available for Windows, Linux and Mac.
