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


I advocate that my teams use the same editor so that we train each other quickly, onboarding is easier, and configurations can be exchanged.

I have just done two 1.5 month experiments with two different configurations for VS Code. I am likely to recommend to my CTO that we purchase IntelliJ for the entire team.


I think the right answer to "What editor do you use?" is "The same one the rest of the team uses." most of the time.

That makes it so that everyone can help one another and work together. I'm a pretty big advocate for pair programming and it helps to use similar tools.
