first, there is no such a thing as notepad++(Npp) for mac or linux.
Npp is a windows program which relies heavily on windows API,
but that does not mean you cannot use it on mac or linux.
In order to do so you need to use software like wine to get a
translation layer from windows API to your used operating system API.

Unfortunately, the exact native Notepad++ Mac alternative doesn’t exist. And there are a few good reasons for it. Notepad++ is a non-commercial open-source project that was originally built by just one developer for the Windows operating system. That’s why it extensively leverages the Win32 API and trying to port the software to macOS would require substantial investments in rewriting the whole codebase.
But worry not! There are ways you can still use Notepad++ Mac version with a few workarounds, by either running an emulator or a virtual machine. Additionally, you can always choose one of numerous outstanding Mac HTML editors that run natively and truly utilize all the possibilities of macOS.
I hope this information will help you.

VirtualBox + Windows + Notepad++ - The most stable way.
:) I believe that on Mac editors are inferior to Notepad ++
