Discussion on: What is your favorite code Editor

I love trying and testing editor, my journey has been Notepad > Dreamweaver > Coda > Sublime Text > vim > VSCode.

I've been using VSCode for the last 3 weeks and it has become my favourite thing. You can do "everything" from your editor, which I thought would be bad but it's great to learn how to do many things from inside the editor. For example, I just searched for how to creat Pull Requests from the editor itself and it's brilliant to not even have to go to Github for that. Especially if you're on bug-fixing streak, you don't even leave the editor :)

And it's fast! I thought being Electron it wouldn't be very fast (Atom is/wasn't when I tested it for a while) and it is very important to me. Of course it's not as fast as Vim but it does so much more. The load time is OK as that isn't something you do a lot, I usually always have it on.

The defaults are also very very good, I think, especially for beginners to start with and learn from that.

Though I use VSCode.I prefer using Atom when I will be committing a lot of codes without stress
