re: Switching back to my old buddy Sublime Text from VS Code 🤷🏻‍♂️ VIEW POST


I really loved Sublime, but the lack of plugins and the lacking community (at least when compared to VSCode), along with the fact that my whole team was using VSCode ended up making me switch.

Even with 8gb of ram it wasn't enough to work properly without hitting swap all the time. I had to upgrade to 12gb, and yet I still suffer with all of ram being used sometimes (mostly due to MS's python server taking up 1~2gb of ram easily). VSCode sure is fancy and helps a lot, but it's a real ram hog.

On lower specced machines (such as my chromebook), I prefer to use vim. I can't even imagine how one could work with VSCode with only 4gb of ram.
