Can I use alternative editor for Unreal Engine?

Hai, I have recently downloaded Unreal Engine (which took 5 days in my current internet speed). I am personally a programmer so I would always prefer coding though visual scripting is in fact a good option. To code in Unreal you have to download the full Visual Studio which is depressing considering my poor internet speed. I just wanted to know if it is possible to program in the editor using alternate editors like dev-cpp or code_blocks or at least Visual Studio Code.

Thank you in Advance…

Alternate way to edit code or alternate way to compile said code?
