@wearsmanyhats @mdhughes VSCode won me away from Emacs at work, which was never going to be an easy task. At this point for something to topple it is highly unlikely.
@pimoore @wearsmanyhats The scripting in Python's a lot nicer (that horrible cursor API aside) than giant masses of JS to do anything. ST4's faster than anything else I've seen short of BBEdit, VSCode & Atom aren't even close, I often outtype them.
@mdhughes @wearsmanyhats I wanted to like Atom a lot more than I did, but you’re right about it being slow. For me at least, VS Code was much faster in comparison.
@mdhughes it’s not hard to outtype any IDE or text editor configured to have IDE like features as vs code or atom.
@hjertnes But I can't outtype ST4, or BBEdit, or console Vim (MacVim/GVim is nearly as slow as VSCode). Big files make that even more clear, the JS editors are a league behind. So some effort may be worth putting in for a faster system.
@mdhughes I think part of the speed difference are language servers and autocomplete stuff, and that ST4 would most likely slow down to the others if you could re-create the features and behaviors of the IDE’s with plugins.
I use IDE’s most of the time and BBEdit or nova when auto complete doesn’t matter
