    I strongly prefer to write my Unity code using Script Inspector 3. But you can use any text editor you like.

    I'd recommend using VS unless you've found something which works better for you.

    Visual Studio Code (not to be confused with the fuller-flavored Visual Studio) is a great lightweight editor for working with .NET projects, which includes Unity. And it's free, so that's nice.

    My employer pays for a Rider license, which is the best IDE I've used so far. It ain't cheap, though, so I guess that's not right for a beginner starting out.

    Script Inspector 3 is great, too, though again, not free. The one thing I could never get over with SI3 is that you can't do breakpoints for debugging with it (at least, you couldn't back when I was using it), so you end up needing another IDE for doing that, and I just end up staying with that other editor. If you're not into using breakpoints, though, SI3 is a great tool that will do everything you need.
