I second the choice of Kate as a programming editor, especially if you like Notepad++.

I know nothing about JS though (but that starts to change by hanging around this forum, will become "mostly harmless" any moment).

I use Xfce for my desktop, Kate is the only KDE application I use - but I use it almost every day.

I use Kate. It works very well with great context highlighting. It even has bracket matching which is a great help. The only thing you have to watch out for is the backup files (they end ~) it creates in case something happens. They are useful feature but they pollute and OXP you are working on so you need to be delete them before you package the OXP.
