re: The IDE - The beginner's trap ! VIEW POST


Personally I have never, ever used an IDE without sooner or later wanting to kill it with fire.

I've used Vim for most of my career, but recently switched to Neovim and took the opportunity to audit my plugins, remove a lot I no longer used, and adopt some new ones. In particular, thanks to Phpactor, I now have excellent autocompletion and the same sort of refactoring tools PHPStorm provides with a fraction of the footprint.


You can do so much with Vim. It's definitely worth the learning curve I still have much to learn. I've never enjoyed the memory footprint of most IDEs and usually they're abstracting away important information that becomes fickle later.
