Vim for everything. It's what works best for me.

With that said I would like to say that I was an Emacs person for 10 years also. I've worked with Eclipse, VS, VSCode, Sublime, and many others. Each editor I've used over the years has been a pain at some point of another. Every editor I've ever used required me to perform some kind of custom setup in some way -requiring hours upon hours of extra work to save myself a few seconds here and there from time to time.

I'm not going to try to sell you on Vim. I'm only saying that it works best for me as a baseline for content; where I will often use 'something else' for presentation (if needed). lol, even this comment was written in a vim js implementation I use from chrome's surfingkeys extension :D


I find it useful for formatting SQL for documentation and it's my go-to for any HTML/CSS stuff. Simply because of the live viewer. It may not be as feature heavy as others, but I find it simple, fast and useful :)


Right now I'm using Atom but now this post is making me want to check out VSCode.


Used VScode today and I like that there are shortcuts for code. I can type div.container.text-center and when I hit enter, it’s written in html (bootstrap 4). Cool!


vim for quick edits and VS Code for almost everything else.


VScode, but SublimeText has a place in my heart bc I used it all throughout college


Yes! I’ve been using sublime up until today. Just downloaded VScode and trying it for the first time. I like that I can use a lighter background theme. Dark themes are harder on my eyes.
