What is the best editor [Testing]

linux

#21

Well to be fair, I started this thread simply to test out some discourse
features. Though feel free to voice your opinion on the various editors
you like / dislike.


#22

Here Here Vim! :dog:


#23

vim :gb_tuxcube:

vi is everywhere. Why ruin a great thing and switch


#24

let me piss everyone off. nano and atom.


#25

I don’t mind Nano. It’s a bit more straight forward than some.


#26

You forgot Joe.


#27

http://lighttable.com/ for me. But i think it is still in beta.
Got it to learn Python and Ruby.


#28

Exactly,
Emacs along +5’000’000 lines of code done so far :wink:

And I feel no wrong about it.


#29

LoL I’ve used Visual Studio Code.

My go to editors are:
Nano in linux.
ScITE -> Probably one of my favourite Gui text editors on Linux.
Notepad++ (windows) -> Used mostly for html / css / php code or just random text / config files.
Visual Studio 2017, I’ve written some C and C++ code. Nothing amazing…
Visual Studio Code :sweat_smile: (Still experimenting with it on both linux and windows) I like how it’s already got heaps of community mods. That’s a huge first for Microsoft. But I still seem to fall back to ScITE and Np++


#30

Epic. :gb_tuxcube:


#31

I kinda like Notepad++ and all day use VS 2015 and MS SQL MGMT


#32

Basic edit Xed and for projects I use Brackets.


#33

When I’m on a *NIX system I always type “vi” because I always have. I’ve heard there are other editors but they don’t always exist on whatever version of HP-UX, or AIX, or Solaris I have in front of me. I use vi because it is always there for me when I need it. On modern systems I end up in VIM when I type vi but I don’t know anything about VIM, really. I’ve heard that it has magical abilities. I’m just in there to hack some text and I need to get it done so people can continue to work.


#34

I’m a Vim user. Modal editing makes my brain feel at ease. Most of the time at least…


#35

Sublime gets my vote, though Atom is right there with it. They work well for the coding that I do with a dash of JS, CSS, HTML, Java, C# and C++. Though for an IDE I go for Jetbrains IntelliJ
