Thank you for pointing that I am also seriously thinking about using VSCodium in the interim. But its time also to see other alternatives.

May I suggest Jetbrains products ? I've switched to PHPStorm and Pycharm years ago and never looked back.

Plus they're completely closed source so at least you know where you stand.

It's funny for someone to recommend closed source for that kind of reason, but it's not stupid: things that only appear free are basically trojans.

Important to note that PHPStorm and Pycharm aren't completely closed source.

github.com/jetbrains contains the Intellij Community edition where both Pycharm and PHPStorm are built on as well as the PHP and Python plugins.
