Notepad++ or Visual Studio Code ?

Team,

 

What's the best tool where I can paste the Power Apps (and Power Compute) code?  For example, In Notepad++, I don't see Power Apps or Power Compute as Language, so I usually use JSON or JavaScript but it's not 100% the same

 

Any advice

Per the advice of Power User @iAm_ManCat you can accomplish this by saving the file as C# in Visual Studio Code.  Check out his Twitter account.  I recommend you follow him for more helpful hints!

Both editors are fine really but my preference is VS Code due to its marketplace for extensions and high level of customizability.

Either one should work, but neither one has a specific setting for Power Apps and there is no intellisense support. So its mostly a personal preference.
