For an entire project, I prefer either sublime text or vs-code. I don't like full fledged IDE because I have lower end laptop and they get very slow.

I have a full setup of vim, But these days I use it only for quick editing.

In the end, The IDE that gives you most productivity is the IDE you spend most time with.
Linus Torvalds uses his version of Emacs, Brian Kernighan uses SAM editor. Jeffery Way prefer VIM even when he is using vscode or sublime.

In short, you should know vim ( or any other terminal based editor for quick edits ) and also know a modern text editor ( like sublime or vscode ) for larger project. Pick up your poison and spend time with it, Customize it, explore it and master it.
