re: Why I Switched from Visual Studio Code to Sublime Text VIEW POST


I switched from Sublime (which I loved so much that I bought it) to VS Code when it was released first and back after a few days. Like you said, it is fast, has a rock solid feature set and works great. However, if you want some advanced functionality, you need extensions, which are written in Python. I even wrote an extension myself to help my work. Still, Python and the bridge between those languages is obviously slower than a 100% C++ app.

In any case, the second time I tried VS Code, I found a whole new pleasant experience, with a lot of integrated features and a vital ecosystem surrounding it. However, I'm writing more JavaScript/TypeScript than PHP, so VS Code is probably more aimed at me than it is at you.


Definitely agree. VS Code has a heavy focus on JavaScript and will mostly become the standard for JS development.
