Besides CLI editors, what are you using?

I'm using Atom (https://atom.io) because it is

- open source

- works on many platforms (Linux, Mac, Windows)

- extremely extensible

- has IDE-like features

- has autocompletion

- has git integration 

- works with many programming languages

- has realtime collaboration (I can help others with their code)

I use it for Ansible, Puppet, Python, Perl, OpenShift, building RPMS. 

Do you use Atom too? Why?

Hi,
I actually deliver Red Hat trainings (mostly OpenShift) with Emacs.
I like to have an easy way to search through the shell output and when I have to edit JSON/YAML, emacs has the correct modes for it.

I use Visual Studio and I'm pretty much settled with it.

I would say that the Visual Studio Code is better, because of the following features:

1. Supports extensions of many languages

2. You can edit code side by side

3. Preview

4. Integrated Version Control

5. Solid Debugging Support

Agree! Sublime is great. And it has a vintage mode which allow you to work with it as in vim =)
