Visual Studio Code

nice modern UI, thriving extension ecosystem; origin of the Language Server Protocol

VIM

A classic and insanely poweful. Has quite a steep learning curve, but the modal editing paradigm is really worth learning. Only real drawback: once you grok it, you want VIM-style editing everywhere. highly customizable, large plugin ecosystem

Emacs

Also a classic; also super powerful.

Sublime Text

sleek UI, probably the fastest of all text editors, highly customizable

atom.io

nice UI, customizable, large plugin ecosystem; sometimes a bit sluggish

Notepad++

A classic in the Windows world. Quite OK, but not as powerful as the other editors in this list.
