I've been using Atom for very long time. To me, it has all I need to write Ruby on Rails, NuxtJS, NextJS, and react-native.
Now that Atom is going to be archived on December 15, 2022. I'm moving back to Sublime Text. I used to use Sublime Text a lot but I don't really like the color scheme. It's going to take some time to get used to new color scheme.
Are there anyone moving to Sublime Text instead of VSCode like me?

It's been a while since I've used Sublime, but you used to be able to customize your color scheme. This post highlights some of the themes and how to change your theme: tabnine.com/blog/top-themes-for-su...
Hi thx for answering,
I saw this blog, and I tried all the dark theme. I end up using the original Adaptive Theme with Babel-Next color scheme.
I'm using RubyMine. Kinda convenient with Rails
I cried as I just heard the news today it feels like I am losing a part of me.
using sublime isn't so bad. it's fast.
It was more so I need free and open source software, I feel other software is restrictive. I have decided that brackets is the answer to my problems. Also, like you, I am not a fan of VSCode's interface.
Visual Studio Code for the Web to me. Visual Studio Code is the last resort to me!
I got so surprised how many users Atom has kept tractions from while just one year age gap between them (Atom 2014, VSCode 2015).
Why will not you choose VSCode? I would like to ask you what VSCode misses.
Note: I have never tried Sublime Text 4 yet.
Hi, thankz for answering.
I don't really like my first impression after installing VSCode since many years ago until now. Please note that this is my personal taste, VSCode is a good IDE. I just don't like it. It's like people who prefer XBOX over PC gaming.
I know that there are ways I can customize VSCode to my needs, but I'm back to Sublime Text 4. Where the editor is plain and simple. Then I can just choose the extensions I really want.
You should use Sublime, which is what you want to use!
Go to file...(sometimes called as Quick file navigation)? (Cmd+P or CMD+P) For me with this, I rarely use File Explore.
A quarter of a century ago, I preferred "XBOX" (I have never had a real Xbox though).
hi, thank you for answering.
I use cmd+p and cmd+shift+p and many other shortcuts all the time. I only use file explorer sidebar to create new file/move files to specific folder. i just found it difficult to create file to specific folder using shortcut.
I admit I have a problem. I just don't like switching things off. I rather have a clean IDE and install what I need.
Let's say, a phone preinstall with apps I don't use vs another phone with just phone functions and app store.
I just hate it when someone decided that, user gonna need this, let's pre-install everything for every one and if they don't need it, let them google to find a way to turn if off.
I really understand your point! But VSCode is now opensourced so YOU can change the default others decided.
That is why I love OPENSOURCED VSCode while it was from Microsoft. Note I do not hate Microsoft.
I don't like many things Microsoft does, but I understand it's hard to please every one when it comes to software.
I think, even if VSCode is not opensourced by Microsoft, I still won't enjoy using it.
Let's hope one day some other IDE catchup. VSCode is leading in the market and I think it's bad not having competitors.
The sunset date is almost upon us but I'm at a loss as to why people think the Atom Editor will somehow just stop working come December 15, 2022 (unless I'm missing something).
I'm not into resurrecting something that's in an archive, but don't see that I need to do that to keep using Atom. It's not like an Apple App where after a certain date your development code stops working on you development device(s), at least that I can see.
