EditorConfig Notepad++ Plugin

This is an EditorConfig plugin for Notepad++.


Install from the Plugin Manager

If you have Notepad++ Plugin Manager installed (usually installed by default in Notepad++), you can install in this way.

Launch Notepad++, click on the Plugins menu, then Plugin Manager -> Show Plugin Manager. In the Available tab, find EditorConfig in the list, check the checkbox and click on the Install button.

Install from the Binary Package

  1. Download the binary package from the SourceForge downloads page.

  2. Extract the compressed archive and copy the corresponding dll into your Notepad++ plugin directory(the unicode dll if your Notepad++ version is unicode or the ansi one if you're using the ansi version Notepad++).

Install from Source

Before installation, you must have both cmake and Microsoft Visual C++ installed.

  1. Download the EditorConfig C core and follow the instructions in the README and INSTALL files to compile and install it with Microsoft Visual C++. Note that the EditorConfig C core must be built with the MT option.

  2. Download the EditorConfig plugin for Notepad++ and extract it.

  3. Open your command line prompt, and use cd command to switch current working directory to the root of the source tree of the Notepad++ plugin. Use the following command to generate the project file:

    C:\path\to\editorconfig-notepad-plus-plus> cmake . -DEDITORCONFIG_CORE_PREFIX="$(The_path_to_EditorConfig_core_prefix)"

    After this project file is built, run cmake-gui . to set the variable PCRE_LIB_DIR to the directory which contains pcre.lib (can be downloaded from ). Double click on the project file and use Microsoft Visual C++ to build it.

  4. If the build succeeded, you should have bin\unicode\NppEditorConfig.dll and bin\ansi\NppEditorConfig.dll in your build tree. Copy the corresponding one (the unicode one if your Notepad++ is unicode version or the ansi one if your Notepad++ is ansi version) to your the plugin directory of the Notepad++ directory to complete the installation.
