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 . . . .
git + sourcetree + bitbucket.org (free) private repos
I find git to be indispensable.
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
git bash / git gui
I've been using Git Extensions quite a bit for commits.
Licensed under the GNU public license, so it's free to use.
I use SmartGit like Git client.
It is free for no commercial use.
And for remote repository I use gitlabhttps://gitlab.com/
Visual Studio Code (I'm loving it!) with: Git GitEasy / MQL ExtensionPack / TODOs Tree / Settings Sync
