VSCode is without a doubt a fantastic experience when you get your workflow set up. VSCode also is a memory hog in comparison to Sublime Text 4.
Not an extensive test.
My VSCode has extensions running vs. a clean install of Sublime Text 4. The same project and tabs are open in each editor.
The difference in memory is vast.
This doesn't bug me. My laptop has plenty of memory to use. If your workstation is limited, it's worth the mention. VSCode also has many more things I use, from the git integration to a snippet library I've written. Again not a fair comparison for memory usage.
Sublime Text 2 -> Atom -> VSCode
Starting with Sublime then moving to Atom. Atom was my favorite for years with the extensions. I even bought the coffee mug.
After arriving at VSCode, I don't think I'm changing anytime soon. There are too many tools and plugins that make my job easier. There are a million articles about the extension marketplace and making your own.
Honestly, if Sublime Text integrated with VSCode's marketplace, that'd be the only thing to get me to switch. I'm not even sure if that's possible, but my entire flow has been built around VSCode.
Even then, I need to buy a license.
What do you think about the new version of Sublime Text? Is it worth the download?
