re: What Alternative Text Editors Does DEV Use? (Not VS Code 🐱‍👓) VIEW POST


I use vim and am very happy with it!
Unfortunately at work I'm on windows (I'm a Linux guy) so I'm running vim through WSL usually. However the standard at work is overwhelmingly to use VSCode. It's too bad, cause it does have some nice features and my team always jokes with me for not using it. But I'm with you; I'd prefer to use things that aren't the most popular to support diverse competition in our tools. And also because vim will always be my favourite.


Stay strong. My co-workers give me crap sometimes for using Vim too. Quite often when they see me edit code, they are amazed at how great Vim is for editing. So it's a win in the end. (they're all VS Code guys)
