Not too long ago there was a forum thread on editors outside MetaEditor. There are quite a variety of editors being used to code MQL.

And I know that some people use software external to their EA's for pulling data from external websites (for example, in Python).

So, I'm curious what other tools you use including, but not limited to, software for plotting graphs, statistical analysis, tracking trades, websites you keep open, etc.

Bring out your tools . . . .

A few tools I use:

LibreOffice Calc - I've written a few macros for various functionality used with output files, optimization results, etc.

Unit Tests - I grabbed this guy's MT4 unittest framework and ported it to MT5.

gnuplot - Powerful plotting software

git bash / git gui - Also mentioned above by nicholishen. I don't push my results to a repo, but I have also used BitBucket in the past. Atlassian tools are pretty solid.

MEGA - sort of like DropBox. This is where I store my backups.

https://www.worldtimebuddy.com/ - useful website I keep open
