Ubuntu – Alternative to basic text editors in ubuntu wsl


Currently I have a ubuntu terminal that I downloaded from the MS store. I would like to be able to edit code without using nano/vim/emacs. Is this possible? Can I use an external editor like visual studio or something of the like?

You are asking about code editors under Ubuntu/WSL.

You may want text apps or graphical apps. And you need to specify the language your code uses.

If Eclipse works for you, this may be useful



For Netbeans
