What is your code editor of choice? I’ve been a BBEdit fan for ages.

@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 VS Code, but have been considering trying Nova.

@Mtt I still enjoy the simplicity of vim, but I generally prefer VS Code.

@Mtt It's been (Neo)vim for so many years.

@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.

@lmika I used Nova for a while. Solid. Probably my favorite all-in-one option.

@sgtstretch Nova is great. Used it for a while. Have an all-in-one package has its definite advantages.

@TheRealChadwick @dynamitemoth @mjdescy VS Code was far and away the most popular pick among those who commented.

@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!

@jemostrom @teisam I love BBEdit so much. Nothing beats it for me. And I’ve tried a lot!

@Mtt I also used BBEdit for a while, but ended up switching recently to Atom.

@Mtt I've spent the most time with Sublime Text but my office demands we all use VS Code.

@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.

@Mtt the only other text editor I use is vim ... so that would probably be my second choice
