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


I use Atom. Before that, in a pinch, I would use Sublime text.


I was an Atom user for a few weeks! Then I started using Sublime because the rest of my team was using it. It's a decent editor, for sure.

Do you use any cool extensions?


A few.

If you write a lot of Ruby erb herlp is handy. I also use atom-html-preview and an IDE terminal.

Overall, I have not done a lot of customizations, but Atom has worked for me.


I'm a fan of Atom. It was my first editor until VS Code came out. I switched because of performance reasons, but now I've had a nagging feeling of switching back to Atom because VS Code's Ruby support is pretty meh.

These are always tough decisions for me 😣
