For gedit that's not true. You can have syntax highlighting for different languages in different tabs. gedit selects them by file name extension. If you open a new document, it can't know the language, so start simply by saving it (even if it's still empty).Gedit and bluefish are okay but there is one problem that bugs me so much that I'm still searching for a better editor. Syntax highlighting is limited to one language.
or if you like some thing more graphical FileZilla ect$ mkdir sunet
$ curlftpfs ftp://ftp.sunet.se/ sunet/ # mount remote ftp on to a folder
$ cd sunet/
$ ls -l

Last I checked Atom did not work on the Pi. There is still an open issue about it on github. Or do you have instructions to make it do so?Get GitHub Atom.
Yes but out opening poster want them all at the same time:For gedit that's not true. You can have syntax highlighting for different languages in different tabs.
That is why all the cool kids actually use Vim (Vi Improved). Vim has syntax highlighting. Just enable it in the vim config file.vi has no html/js syntax highlighting
What is the best editor for web development with syntax highlighting for multiple languages at once? Also, is there one where I can open directly from FTP in the program? Usually, On mac/windows I've found "open from FTP" plugins for IDEs if it didn't have it. Maybe there's an editor with plugins with this and also multiple syntax highlighting for the Pi?
I'd love to hear what other web guys are doing out there on their Raspberry Pi's and what suites you the best when doing strictly web development stuff. And I should mention I have the latest Raspberry Pi 2 B+ model running Raspbian with the default desktop environment (because it seems to be the fastest). I have the NOOBs installer on my SD card and tried to install Pidora as well cause that seemed to have some better options for some things but unfortunately it doesn't work on this model of the Pi yet according to another post I read. Anyway, thanks ahead for your suggestions!
