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?

Re: Besides CLI editors, what are you using?

I use Kate, because it:
- is open source
- is super configurable
- is loaded with plug-ins
- integrates with .vimrc
- supports complex find and replace, including regex
- has a built-in CLI
- has many more features besides

I used Atom for a while but settled on Visual Studio Code because I find it to be a lot faster than Atom, (especially with larger amounts of text) and it's also cross-platform.

There are lots of downloadable extensions available as well.

I got indoctrinated to Emacs by a former boss back in '09 and I haven't looked back since. It's open source, cross-platform, and insanely flexible. There are days when I don't even need to open anything *but* Emacs. It's great.

Yes, Emacs. Because it's fantastic. Been using it since the early 90's. Still use vi for quick edits though.

I use LibreOffice Writer and save everything as unicode text files.
