Every now and then, someone brings up the topic of what is the best editor to write KiX (and others) scripts with. There's always interesting commentary, and one thing's for sure; people are quite passionate about their editor.

Here are a couple of of those threads.

Bit OFF TOPIC, editor

Dedicated freeware editor for KiX-scripts

Kixtarter - Kixtart Script Editor

Which Editor Should I use
And there's lots more. Just click on the search link at the top of this page (look up, way up), put in the word 'editor', and there you have it.

Give a man a fish and he will be back for more. Slap him with a fish and he will go away forever.

Here is a list of PHP Editors (but all of them should handle KiXtart as well since it is all pure text, but may not have specific functionality geared towards KiXtart)

Currently 111 Editors listed. Allows filtering by Platform and License.
