  • opening multiple files: open in splits or tabs, search through open files with fzf
  • opening multiple projects: personally I use tmux for that
  • syntax highlighting: polyglot
  • file navigation: vinegar, nerdtree or just fzf
  • fuzzy file search: fzf or rg or ag etc.
  • tag search: gutentags with fzf backed by ctags

Far and away better than VSCode especially on code bases with a lot of files - the command t plugin for Vim (I personally use fzf on smaller code bases) happily works across millions of files.
