Javascript is a client side scripting language,used in creating dynamic websites or web applications.If you are either an expert or a beginner javascript programmer && working on linux based operating system like Ubuntu,then surely you would like to have interactive IDE or Editor.This post will introduce you with an interactive IDE && an editor for javascript programmer.

Editor for Javascript

gedit,the default text editor for GNOME Desktop(The Default Desktop of Ubuntu) is a versatile editor,because it has syntax coloring support for all the commonly used programming languages,scripting language,..etc.That’s why gedit is your basic source editor for javascript,but if you want more advanced features then I would recommend to go with an javascript IDE(Interactive Development Environment).[see below if you want javascript IDE]

IDE for Javascript Programmers

Eclipse is recommended IDE for Javascript.Actually Eclipse is mostly known as a java IDE but it has different versions of IDE for different stuffs,and the functionality can be easily extended by means of plugins.Eclipse is open source and available FREE.So if you want to have fun with javascript,I strongly recommend to download and install dedicated version of Eclipse IDE for javascript web developers.
