What do you guys use to code?
« on: February 22, 2018, 08:21:49 PM »
Title.

I've been using Sublime 3 for the past 4 years, but I'm looking for something new. Some features I miss in Sublime are the auto-formatting (that is, on "ends" and the such, not just new lines inside "if" or "for" statements). Any suggestions? I'm a bit turned off to Notepad++, but if someone can convince me (MrP ;) ) I'll consider it.

I used NP++ for years. I still like how simple it is, but they removed the plugin manager in the more recent builds and that prevented me from easily downloading the gLua highlighter. I switched to Sublime 3 and spent some time tweaking the UI to my liking and installed a glua highlighter and lexer. I quite like it.

I don't really know of any alternatives besides NP++ and Sublime 3.

Why are you looking to move away from Sublime?

I just switched from Sublime to Visual Studio Code. With a bit of tweaking it can be just as powerful as Sublime, it has a pretty awesome extension "Marketplace", and it's entirely free! aStonedPenguin has created a glua plugin that seems to work pretty well for autocompletes.

I do have Visual Studio from when I was messing around in C#... Maybe I'll check it out

Just to clarify, there is a difference between "Visual Studio" and "Visual Studio Code" :)

I started with Notepad++ about 5-6 years ago, then switched to Atom a few years later.

Eventually got around to switching to Sublime Text (because Atom was extremely slow at certain points, primarily startup time), until I finally switched to VS Code a few months back (after hesitating for a bit).
While I love Sublime Text for it's blazingly fast startup time, VS Code isn't far behind and its extension marketplace seems to be a lot better than what I could get through Package Control in Sublime.

Nowadays I mainly use Sublime as a temporary notepad and editing/searching miscellaneous text/log files, and VS Code for actual development.

Thanks for the input. I've been using VS Code and very satisfied with it. I agree with you Decicus with Atom's slow bootup. I was happy when I found VS Code launches fairly quickly.

I use Notepad++ primarily. Though sometimes when I'm in the mood to switch things up I use Sublime for Visual Studio code. Have Dracula installed on Notepad++ and it's quite pretty.

At home I use Atom (never noticed any start-up time issues on a Mac); at work, I use Vim... simply because getting software approved at work is a major pain in the redacted. After being forced to use it for a while, I've actually come to enjoy it.

I work in a Windows shop, and, NP++ is approved.
The actual 'hardcore' dev group has access to/uses more, but for my various quick script and web work, NP++ does extremely well.
I use it at home too.
