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?

I have used Atom, Eclipse, and others, but I almost always find myself going back to vi/vim.  Most of what I do is write a playbook, bash script, or foreman/satellite template, so I'm not too demanding.  I would like to find an editor with simple git integration that I could really fall in love with though.  I feel that this would help be more 'default to open' with my projects.

 

Maybe it is time to give VSC a try.

When you give VSC a spin, I recommend looking into a couple extensions for git integration:

- GitLens

- Markdown Preview Github Styling

The GitLens extension is great. I really like how you can right-click on a file in VSCode and it gives you the option to "Open File in Remote" which takes you to the file in GitHub (or whatever Git cloud you're using).

I switched from Sublime Text to Atom, because Atom is Open Source Software. Recently I switched from Atom to Visual Studio Code because of much better speed and many good extensions.

If people don't trust Microsoft they could even fork the repo of the editor.

I use Visual Studio Code. I like that it supports multiple languages through extensions, and it's performant for my projects. I also like Intellisense.

I use VSCode for projects, when I have to edit/view single files, GEdit is my go to or Notepad++ on Windows.

I use vi for quick edits since it's available on VMs etc without extra work.

For bigger things, I use Atom, but I confess, I haven't tried the git integration in Atom yet.

Visual Studio Code is my choice for my projects. I used to use Atom but switched since VS Code is faster, has tons of useful extensions and supports many languages/framework. My favourite extension is probably Git Lens.

For quick edit, I use vi since it's generally available.
