Just curious, /g/
What text editor do you use? Pic related is mine at the moment.
I have been rocking Vim since I was a kid (actually, i started with Vi) and I am having a hard time moving away from it. I know there are other more modern editors that could be better, but I have spent so much time with Vim it has become almost an extension of myself.
Sublime Text 3
The UI is fantastic, its performant and quite efficient with memory too.
And unlike text editors build on meme cancer technologies it can open a 2Gb SQL dump without shitting the bed.
Sublime Text and TextMate 2.
Atom and Brackets aren't even considerations because they're turbobloated shit. 220MB of disk space and 270MB of RAM usage from a cold start with only an empty document open? Yeah no, fuck that shit. Sublime and Textmate do everything Atom and Brackets do while being far faster and requiring 1/7th of the space and 1/5th of the memory.
Only emacs can be considered a text editor; everything else is merely a toy
I really, really want to like Atom but it's slow as shit. If it ran better, it would be almost like Emacs with a modern UI and CoffeeScript instead of Elisp. But, it runs like crap so I just use Emacs.
wxMEdit because Notepad++ does not support different encodings in hex viewer mode, why I wonder.
I'm not entirely convinced Atom's problem is Electron. Visual Studio Code is also built on Electron, and it runs a lot better than Atom. I think Atom is just straight up unoptimized.
What is the y-axis supposed to be on those graphs?
see what I mean? it's fucking retarded.
I know there are other more modern editors that could be better
Nah. Maybe spacemacs but the "modern editors" are absolute hipster trash for people that judge programs for 90% on how it looks..
I mean like autocompletion and syntax. Are there any advantages? Like in atom, you only have to press parentheses or quotes once to get both, which makes it slightly faster. I meant like perks other than being based on a web browser.
Haven't used it much (don't quite like KDE), but it's similar to Notepad++
It also has extensions (The bracket complete one being enabled by default)
It also looks nice in KDE, since it's made by the KDE team
Vim. The extension language is absolute shit, but Vim combines the god-tier controls of vi with a few really important additions, like being able to delete previously entered text, syntax highlighting, relative line numbers, etc, and it's available everywhere.
>check op program
>installing, the program will open shortly
>wait that shit setup isn't doing what i am thinking
>shit installed on appdata
is this a joke?
so is python and ruby. more so I'd argue because there's no inane bullshit like HTML and the DOM to have to contend with.
Save to .py/.rb file -> run .py/.rb file. Done. How the fuck is that hard?
I can understand people not jumping on C-family stuff right out the gate but only learning JS and never advancing past it is both stupid and depressing. Do they have any clue how badly they're squandering their own potential?
literally nothing wrong with either of these things; the developer's personal political view and sexual preferences are irrelevant unless the developer puts stuff about it in the text editor.
This is like saying Emacs sucks because its original dev supports the legalisation of child pornography
>the developer's personal political view and sexual preferences are irrelevant unless the developer puts stuff about it in the text editor.
In the case of Notepad++ the developer did. He said that he didn't want French who voted for FN using his software in the release notes.
A lot of people these days seem to have difficulty separating a person from their product. Ok, so Dude X was a demonstrably bad person. This probably means that I dislike Dude X, but if Dude X happened to create an amazing tool, it's not going to stop me from benefiting from said tool because that's idiotic. As human beings we're capable of taking the good from situations as we leave behind that bad. Let's start doing that.
>wants you to uninstall his software because you voted for something he doesn't like
>not relevant to the software he makes
he's a retard who supports censorship and his retardness shows in his software anyway, why the hell would he block encoding in hex mode and force UTF-16 BE? needless to say the hex mode looks like shit too.
What exactly is wrong with it?
>inb4 you can't back up why it's immoral
That's unfortunate, though he's not forcing you to uninstall it or not use it. He still gives you more rights than Microsoft does, and he won't pursue legal action against FN voters, because he can't. You're not forced to see the release notes.
He hasn't changed any part of the program itself other than some help text maybe, in order to put a political message. This is no different to the Vim guy putting his Uganda stuff when you start it.
I have no idea about the quality of the software itself, nor do I care (as I said) about the guy's opinions. I'm just glad he's released his program as free software.
That's likely, but not implied. If you're okay with your wife doing that, and the wife wants to do it - the only consequence is that someone's gonna be upset (maybe). That's their business not mine.
<iyra> i considered signing up to twitter to retweet that
You are an autistic fuck, holy shit, I had no idea you were suck a cuck.
why aren't you a cuck? there's nothing wrong with it.
I'm talking with my gf on IRC right now :3
It's just not my personal preference. I didn't say there's anything wrong with it. It's possible to support the right for people to do things one would not personally partake in, such as drinking alcohol or drawing lolicon manga.
why would I bother installing another operating system when I already have one?
joking aside I don't care for emacs, would rather have a straight up text editor, not something that wants to be a bit of everything
besides I can install pretty much anything except windows and vim or at least vi is already there
Yeah, sure, backpeddle harder, bigot. Why do other people's sexual preferences bother you so much? So what if some men like watching their women have sex? What's your problem, guy?
>do web monkeys outnumber real desktop software devs that badly?
Answer is no. However, lots of kids are "learning how to program" and they start by doing JS and Node and similar shit. As they haven't learned proper computer engineering and programming, they think that JS/Node/Whatever is great. They're kids, so they think they should remake everything that they're using with their superior technology. And, as what is "hip" now is webdev, they do *everything* based on web. Real devs have better things to do than creating new editors than do not add anything new to the scene except being written in fancy crap languages.
Obviously you have, because if you didn't you'd accept it for what it is - the best sexual experience.
Yet you think that us cucks are just low life that don't deserve any recognition, right?
I have not tried it myself, and I do not want to. It may be the best sexual experience, but it's just not for me. That does not make me a bigot, nor prejudiced against people who are into cuckoldry.
That's not what I think at all.
I feel like lack of education isn't a good excuse for being a JS proponent. I haven't had a single day of traditional CS or SE education and yet I make a living writing C-family languages (no, not C#, but C, C++, and Objective-C).
My theory is that developers who never move beyond JS are just lazy assholes who can't be arsed to learn anything more.
No, I don't have anything against it. There's a difference between having a taste for something and supporting it.
I support the right for people to have free speech, though I wouldn't say anti-Semitic, racist etc. messages myself.
Of course, but not all of them are lazy. Some just are sheeps and read and follow nuthead JS proponents, that crappily argument how JS is better and they believe it because they don't have any knowledge apart from the one biased for JS.
I sort of did the opposite. When I had learned the basics I started reading about a lot of plugins and installed everything I liked. Then after a while I went trough my vimrc and removed the ones I wasn't using.
Also, Neovim is very usable now. I've been using it daily for months both at home and work, and I never had it crash.
Now I use airline, easymotion, supertab, taglist and neomake.
For learning, the book "Practical Vim" has been very helpful for me. I keep it on the living room table and read a few tips every time there is a commercial break when I watch TV.
Emacs. I don't understand how some people take pride in using proprietary trash. If you work in IT you're going to spends countless hours working with a text editor so you should invest in customizing and learning every detail of a powerful one. After you spent that much time, you can't be dependent on some company that can discontinue your tool for some stupid commercial reason. What are Sublime fags going to now that their editor is abandonware?
You might have been conditioned by Reddit to load every new program up with as many stupid plugins and extensions as possible. Use vanilla Vim at least until you've learned the controls, and if you find yourself missing something, then maybe try a plugin.

How any of you fuckers are any different from fucking tumblr. You are the same fucking kind people that delete projects on github because you disagree with them. Hell, you are doing exactly the same thing you are hating notepad++ for, giving priority the preferences and views of others rather than the product.
Is because of you people that net neutrality is disappearing.
Compile it yourself you dingus
Also, unless his earnings are directly to a nambla like organization, I don't see how you are supporting him.
Is like saying that by using E-macs you are promoting toe dirt eating.
