@Mtt For the largish, "language specific" projects, I like the IDEs made by JetBrains. The license is expensive, but for what I use them for it's worth it. For the incidental code editing I do, such as config files, etc., I'm using Nova from Panic.
@Mtt I used to be a JetBrains enthusiast, but I’ve made the switch to VS Code and really prefer it now.
@Mtt Visual Studio Code beat out all other text editors and IDEs (other than Xcode) for me. I held out on Sublime Text for a long time, though. For some reason, I never could get the hang of BBEdit, which I first used in the 1990s.
@Mtt VS Code for me. I've tried Vim so many times over the years, but it never quite sticks with me. I was also a Sublime Text user for a good number of years, but the flexbility of VS Code and the amount of active extensions for web development made me switch to VS Code.
@Mtt BBedit. I think version 13 was the release that made me finally grok regex. And it’s the only editor that doesn’t choke on very large log files.
@sgtstretch Nova is great. Used it for a while. Have an all-in-one package has its definite advantages.
@matthewlang VS Code seems to be the most popular. At least among those who responded. Also, every time I see your name, I have to question if I made an account I forgot about. Name similarity!
@Mtt I used to look around for a new editor and email client once per year ... after 15 years or so looking at new editors I stopped looking, it's just a waste of time, BBEdit is better 😜
@Alligator I tried Atom, but went back to BBEdit. Nothing wrong with Atom, just more comfortable with BBEdit.
@gregmoore Sublime is my second choice. Never used VS Code extensively, but it has a lot of supporters!
@jemostrom Been there! And I agree, I just eventually stopped looking. Nothing touches BBEdit in my opinion.
@Mtt I wish I could use Panic’s Coda but being OS agnostic is a high priority for my team so we settled on VS Code because it’s currently one of the best (and free) choices.
@Mtt I am extremely fickle with editors for code; for technical writing, I’ve never found something that beats BBEdit. Since BBEdit 14 I’ve been increasingly sticking with it for coding despite nitpicks, though.
