Neovim, for 4 years now

Intellij for any big projects, VSCodium for smaller stuff, and vi for config editing, etc.

mostly vim as well.

recently tried finding a good alternative though, i haven’t found a way to make working with bigger code-bases a breeze with it somehow…

i gave vis a go, and am currently using kak

it is! i really like that it’s very visual about what is happening, and multiple cursors are a blast, but to me it still does have some rough edges in usage.

… and i’m just so used to vim-fugitive, nothing will ever come close

I really don’t know how I could move back to a traditional editor at this point. Even turning on emulator plugins just never cut it - there’s always something crucial missing and you can’t configure them to the extent of Neovim or Emacs. I’m at a point where I’d choose employers based on whether I can use Neovim or not.

I personally use vim and doom emacs doom emacs is emacs with “evil mode” the vim keys

I do almost everything I do with a computer from inside of Emacs, and I absolutely love it. On top of everything else, it’s also a fantastic IDE 🙂

For IDEs I use Jetbrains stuff mostly. For work, I use Rider for .Net Framework stuff. I’ve been learning Rust lately using CLion with the Rust plugin.

I really need to just sit down and learn vim. It just never clicks with me. Everyone loves it so clearly it’s good, but I need to learn it. Anyone have any resources (besides vimtutor) or is it just a matter of forcing yourself to use it?

A good starting place: how to grok vim. Also check out vimrc on github, it’s a good collection of plugins so you don’t have to start from complete scratch. Oh an coc.nvim turns vim into an IDE with auto complete and error checking for most languages.

I’d recommend the book Practical Vim.

This is useful. Although I still don’t know how there are people so skilled with this kind of programs! Vim looks and feels hard to use :see-no-evil monkey:

I will take a look at it, but unfortunately at work it’s going to be a no go. We run a application white list on our systems and Notepad++ is already OKed and the security guys are not going to vet a new app just cus I asked.

Emacs :)

VSCodium

I currently use VSCode at work, but I might try this. Any pitfalls or unexpected downsides I should be aware of when I make the switch?

Default VSCodium doesn’t use Microsoft’s extension store, instead using Open VSX Directory which is missing extensions. It can be changed after install if needed, though.

I use to prefer to send a feature request to the extensions’ developers to upload their extensions to the Open VSX Directory too.

If you need more information about vscodium, I recommend you to read the documentation to know if you should use it or not: https://github.com/VSCodium/vscodium/blob/master/DOCS.md

Sometimes updates made in VSCode take time to arrive in VSCodium (I suppose that it’s because they need time to delete tracking elements from VSCode). Some extensions may not work as intended in vscodium because they use a different marketplace (https://open-vsx.org/). But in short, it is worth using it because in my case, I feel that the program runs faster, is less cumbersome and is lighter in general, although I do not know if it is a placebo effect or is due to the absence of telemetry and Microsoft trackers.

VSCode, usually with vim plug-in

I have totally drunk the JetBrains kool-aid since $JOB pays for the all products pack license. Regular user of Pycharm, Webstorm, CLion, and occasional user of Resharper for C# and Datagrip. Makes it easy to jump to Android Studio since it’s the same base IDE. What language should the next $job project be in? ;)

My job gave me a Visual Studio license but I still use Rider with a license I bought myself. It just seems more… nimble? I’m sure it’s just a matter of what one is most used to and therefore best enabled by, and in my case that’s the JetBrains toolset.

VSCodium (de-Microsoft’d Visual Studio Code) for general programming, IntelliJ Community Edition for Kotlin, and Kwrite for quickly reading or writing a file. Also TexStudio for Latex files.

Finally, I mainly use Vim for editing system files because they usually need sudo.

geany with a few plugins is very nice and is what i mainly use.
