What is the best text editor?
Visual Studio Code?
>sublime runs smoothly and never crashes
>atom loads for up to 2 mins at times, at least once a week I get problems with the extensions
>visual studio I use only for C#, however it loads up to 2 mins too, at least never crashes and once its loaded its running smoothly too, great for debugging
idk, I really enjoy atom, but its so unstable its horrid...
you sure have great plans. may i ask, do you know why you wish to put yourself through all this? what's your big idea
VIM if its about overall ecosystem and usefulness after customization.
SublimeText is probably the best when you want user experience and OOTB experience.
Visual Studio Code isn't a general purpose text editor. Its a Microsoft gimmick for developing azure applications on non-Windows.
Out of those I'd personally would recommend Atom. All-around good editor and you can use it to work with multiple different languages. And the community support (additional packages) is rather good
"Ed is the standard text editor."
Let's look at a typical novice's session with the mighty ed:
eat flaming death
Note the consistent user interface and error reportage. Ed is
generous enough to flag errors, yet prudent enough not to overwhelm
the novice with verbosity.
"Ed is the standard text editor."
Honestly I just like learning stuff and find it interesting. I'm an Information Systems Major, so all I'll be learning in university is MySQL and C#. I want to know more because it's interesting, plus it will make me look better when applying to a job.
Once I know more I want to help with like Open source projects on Github and stuff though. Maybe think of something cool and make it. Not sure.
Sublime if you're willing to pay for the license; Notepad++ otherwise.
I tried Atom but it's bugged as fuck. Also it doesn't remember your session and you have to always save your work unless you install some user extension which is even more bugged and fucks up hotkeys for non-english keyboards. Never again.

>he fell for the meme.
atom is too slow
Sublime opens immediately and I can compile code, looks really nice and the keyboard shortcuts I find intuitive.
That being said, I bought a license years back when they were still dirt cheap.
>tfw finally getting an update since 2003
feels good man
I do database architecture, C#, Java, and Python programming.
Visual Studio whenever I can possibly use it. My favorite tool. Delicious feature-rich bloat.
Sublime Text for scratchpad and scripting(like VBScripts/Batch files).
SQL Server Management Studio when working with MS SQL databases.
MySQL Workbench when working with MySQL.
Jetbeans stuff for Java and Python (PyCharm and IntelliJ).
Use nano, nano is the best text editor evah!
atom would be the best if it didn't run like complete horse shit.
it seems like it's trying to be like Emacs with a modern interface and coffeescript instead of elisp. i can get behind the idea, but it just runs like shit and chews through battery power. i'd love to use it, but i'll stick with emacs until atom stops being a slow, buggy mess.
Spacemacs is the best.
But if you can't be bothered to learn that, then Sublime. Atom is fine, but in any decently sized project it starts slowing down too much. As far as I know it doesn't offer anything Sublime doesn't, anyway.
What's the best for C#/C++ at a beginner to intermediate level? I've been using Visual Studio, it's clunky and I despise the sign in system but appreciate the inbuilt library of information and easy interface to Unity.
>emacs confirmed for kikeware
oh how the stallman has fallen
No, you don't. Emacs+EVIL imo, though.
That said, when fizzbuzzers in the thread are considering atom and ST to be viable options, should we even be suggesting emacs to them? They'll give up before the tutorial is over, long before they ever configure it to be a comfy environment for dev.
No text editors, IDEs have a different use case. Text editors are for editing basically any type of text you throw at it, IDEs are for specific languages and projects and usually need setup and configuration before you can start.
simple, yet just works
inb4 someone replies with anything about productivity with vim/emacs/other similar shit
>i have to learn a text editor for a month before i can do shit in it
>one month doing NOTHING productive
for larger files i use Leafpad.
