Which Code Editor You Prefer Best?

As a Developer, I always prefer Visual Studio Code (VS Code). Because it has tons of exciting features that made my life much easier.

I love the "Snazzy Theme" as my primary IDE theme. What about you?

I use webstorm and occasionally VS Code. Though webstorm also introduced a light editor mode. Didn’t explored much though.

Webstorm? Is it related to PHPStorm?
I dunno why it seems like I'm familiar with the word "WebStorm". Maybe because it almost sounds like PHP Storm :P

I've used maybe 3-4 Code Editors in my life. I started with Notepad then Notepad++ (It's just a text editor :P). Then I moved to Atom and finally to VSCode.

Now I'm stuck with VS Code :P

Happy Coding

It is from JetBrains. Used for web development (Javascript). And yes, it WebStorm or Webstorm. hahahaha.

Even i used some. Started with notepad(++) -> aptana studio -> netbeans -> adobe brackets -> Atom -> WebStorm -> VSCode -> WebStorm (back to this) and occasionally VSCode too.

Haha, Such a long and nice journey with the Code Editors, huh?

Could you please tell me, can I code in PHP Language with the WebStorm?

I use gvim and it is more than enough for my purposes. I have a custom .vimrc but no plugins.

I've heard that Vim is the ubiquitous text editor :D Yeah, such a nice choice!

But, I've also seen so many memes about Vim on Facebook that, If you accidentally or incidentally turn on Vim, then you'll not be able to turn it down or you may not find the close button anywhere :P
(Just Kidding :P)

I think I should start using Vim for the real-life experience!

At present, I use the JetBrains IDE (webstorm) production tool and vscode as a lightweight code editor

Awww... Thank You!
Maybe I should also start using WebStorm as my production tool and VS Code as a minimal, lightweight code editor.
You know what, I'm in love with VS Code ♥

Pick one stick with it? VSCode for me.

Yeah, you have to pick only one stick :P
By the way, VSCode is really a good and outstanding choice.

Happy Coding!

Vs code. Especially with the live server and watch sass function which will be nice once I start learning that.

Excellent choice Nelson!
I also love the Live Server extension by Ritwick Dey and using it since I started using VS Code :D.
VS Code has a lot of built-in functionalities, it's lightweight, fast... That's why I always prefer VS Code.

Happy Coding
