I see a lot of people asking about script editors for vbScript and Powershell.
If you want free then I would suggest the following:
Notepad Plus is a good replacement for Notepad.
Here are the features of Notepad++ :
Syntax Highlighting and Syntax Folding
- Supported languages :
C C++ Java C# XML HTML
PHP CSS makefile ASCII art (.nfo) doxygen ini file
RC resource file Pascal Perl Python Lua TeX
TCL Assembler Ruby Lisp Scheme Properties
Diff Smalltalk Postscript VHDL Ada Caml
AutoIt KiXtart Matlab Verilog Haskell InnoSetup
User Defined Syntax Highlighting
Regular Expression Search/Replace supported
Full Drag ‘N’ Drop supported
Dynamic position of Views
File Status Auto-detection
Zoom in and zoom out
Multi-Language environment supported
Brace and Indent guideline Highlighting
Macro recording and playback
Or you could go with Sapiens PrimalPad:
SAPIEN Technologies has released a new FREE (for personal use) portable editor called PrimalPad.
With PrimalPad you can edit PowerShell, VBScript, JScript and HTML files.
The editor also support multi-tabbed environment, line numbers and color coding.
The editor is a single EXE file, no need to install anything, just double click it and start editing your scripts.
PrimalPad is available as x32 and x64 versions and can be downloaded HERE (registration needed).
If you are only working in Powershell then:
the Power Gui from PowerGui.org is a good choice and it’s free:
For a few dollars more;
I like it because it lets me work in columns and it will find and replace tabs and line feeds.
It supports the basic scripting languages, but last I looked it did not directly support Powershell.
1-user license: US $35
One just for vbScript is vbsEdit;
This does amazing things in vbScript, including showing you all the functions and methods
available when you open up a com object. I really like this feature when I am scripting Excel.
VbsEdit Single-user license for $49.00
Of course if you want the very best and are willing to pay for it then you must buy Primal Script.
I won’t go into details, but if scripting is you job, then this is the one for you.
