re: Why I Switched From Visual Studio Code To JetBrains WebStorm VIEW POST


Is WebStorm an IDE or am I wrong?

Vscode is just an editor...


Yes, I mention that in my conclusion


Once you include plugins for debug and Git it is an IDE so the comparison is entirely fair. Refactoring, search/replace in jetbrains IDE (whether webstorm or pycharm etc), widening selection, and regression testing blow the doors off vs code. But you won't understand until you experience it first-hand with an open mind because it is almost possible to foresee how small differences in GUI can have such incredible impact. The only real advantage of VS code is startup time and price.
