re: Notepad++ ❤ I feel like VSCode is a bit too much for such files.
 

Do you think this feeling is a matter of practicality and productivity or more of a personal taste/aesthetic/feelings?

 

Both actually 😁

VSCode has many extra features (side panel for git & file explorer).

But, notepad++ gives you just the text front of you so you can make changes or peek into the file as quick as possible... save & quit.

My thinking is generally like this: Do I need to open the whole folder and play with it?

  • Yes, open folder with VSCode
  • No, open that specific file with Notepad++.
