re: Why I Switched From Visual Studio Code To JetBrains WebStorm VIEW POST


IDEs tend to make developers dependent on them. So much so that after awhile people seem to forget how to do things and depend on the IDE to do it for them. I can't tell you how many times people have effed up our git repositories because they don't understand Git, but use it anyway with the IDE or GUI tool. Likewise, when you outsource things like testing, builds and debugging to the IDE, the moment you take it away people get lost and have no idea what to do.

Rise above. Focus on coding, not on letting the IDE do all the work for you. Having everything in one place is nice, but is it worth sacrificing visibility into your own project?


True, for unexperienced developers!


Your argument is based on the absence of an IDE, the problem is they got into a situation without firmiliar tools. I did what this post did and I can somehow still use a terminal πŸ˜‚
