WebStorm is one of the most popular JavaScript IDEs on the market. While this solution from JetBrains isn’t exactly cheap, you’re getting a powerful IDE for modern JavaScript development with smart coding assistance. Its features include code completion, error detection, and refactorings for a number of languages like JavaScript, Node.js, HTML, and CSS.

Another popular option for JavaScript is Komodo Edit. This is a stripped-down version of Komodo’s advanced IDE and it makes development easier than ever. It’s a powerful yet simple multi-language editor. The editor feels intuitive and can handle most problems.

VS Code offers smart completion with IntelliSense, built-in Git integration, the ability to debug code straight from the editor, and more. VS Code is highly extensible with a number of customization options through its many extensions.

Oh Atom. This IDE from GitHub has made our top 5 lists several times for a good reason.  Atom IDE is a set of optional packages meant to bring IDE-like functionality to Atom. io. It is compatible with JavaScript along with CSS and Node.js, thanks to a foundation of Electron and TypeScript language package.

Brackets is an open-source code editor for the web from Adobe. Since it is written in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, Brackets offers a native code editing experience for developers, without any compatibility issues.
