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

re: Paid by jetbrains to advetise their expensive product? I wouldn't spend a penny for an "IDE".
 

I used to spend 4-8 hours a month to configure or keep updated my VS Code / Atom. That's roughly $100 MONTHLY.

The WebStorm costs my employer $50 YEARLY. I don't waste that time any more.

WebStorm is CHEAPER than VS Code.

 

Honestly the time I spend configuring VS Code is time I spend having fun tinkering, so I'm not counting it as lost money. I don't really change my configuration unless I find new cool extensions here or I want to try a new color scheme.

In 20 years I configured and played with so many code editors and IDEs that I got very tired of all of them. Thus WebStorm is a good suit.

Now that you mention it, I've been using VSCode since it was released (Jesus how time goes by...), while before I was on Sublime Text 2 on Mac (definitely the best option back then) since 2008 or 2009. Just a little bit of Atom between 2014 and 2015. I don't remember really playing with extensions until Code made it so easy, I stuck with Monokai and default before.
