Discussion on: How I chose my Code Editor

I've been doing small CS problems when I realized the IDE was an overkill. Switched to Vim because all the cool kids were doing it. Three years later, I still use it for practically all of my web apps.

Didn't try that but seems pretty pragmatic and reviewers love it. I'm going to leave it for practice later :)

Vim for me too. After learning it and installing a couple of modules it becomes very powerful and easy to use.

That's a quite bad reason. If you're feeling ok with it that's good, but maybe you're missing out.

I know! :D

I've actually tried other editors, but I don't feel like I've given them enough time. Today I'm going to setup the VS Code and use it for a week or two just to see if things will become easier to me.

Okay, it's just about a week now. Today I switched back to Vim.

VS Code is a good editor, but it didn't give me anything a terminal couldn't give. And I really missed the close integration with my terminal.

That said, that was an interesting experience, thank you for the idea.
