I've been using VS Code for awhile now and have been enjoying it, up until I started working on a very deep project and I started experiencing slow downs as well. Interesting to learn it may be related.
Though I have never used Sublime it seems like as good of a time as any to give it a shot. I am curious though, do people not like Atom?
Never played that much with it.
sometimes Atom does that thing too, hog memory
Atom is also based on electron. On catalina(after recent upgrade), it refused to open for me but then next version fixed it. It is quite good but not as good as vscode. Though, in atom the way it shows syntax error and all is much better and productive. I wish vscode gets that.
So, i used all three, and each one of them has its own pros and cons. So I would suggest all to try it by themselves and use the one that is suitable for you.
