Differentiate default encoding by file extension
HTML5 requires that files be encoded in UTF-8, so all php, html, css, and js files should be saved in that way. All the other text files, as txt, conf, ini, and so forth could be saved in ISO-8859-1. Is there a way to differentiate the default encoding by extension in Notepad++?
Is there a way to differentiate the default encoding by extension in Notepad++?
afaik, no, not with native npp functions/settings.
A possible solution might involve scripting language plugins like python script, lua script etc. One could register a callback function when a file gets loaded/activated
and then checks the file extension and acts accordingly.
Good idea. I’m also interested in this.
