[NTG-context] Text editors

Every user has his or her own preferred test editor. Over years I have
used Emacs for just about everything except the kitchen sink, but not,
as it happens, for ConTeXt.
For what it's worth here is what I use:
(1) TeXworks. All one has to do is indicate the correct path to ConText
in the setup for this program, depending on your OS and where you have
installed it, e.g. home/yourname/bin/context/tex/texmf-linux-64/bin if
you are using Linux and have installed it in \bin. Then choose ConTeXt
(LuaTeX) as the processing tool.
(2) But to make things a lot easier, I also use Federico's text expander
<https://espanso.org/>. This just saves so much time, especially for so
many \start...\stop sequences.Â For example, in espanso I might have:
Â - trigger: ":bq"
Â Â Â replace: |
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â \startblockquote
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â $|$
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â \stopblockquote
And this means all I have to do is type :bq and as you can sense from
the example above, I have the \start and \stop and intervening space all
ready to work with.
Hope it helps!
