With the wealth of available IDE's out there (IntelliJ, Atom, VS Code, etc.), what are you personal favourites and why?

    I'll start. My favourite IDE is VS Code, though I have also used GitHub's Atom and it tends to be my fall back or even my default for normal editing tasks.

    Still use Eclipse for all my Java coding. And vim for JS..! haha

    What is vim? Is it similar to pine?

    PyCharm is great for python. For scripting, I tend to just use vi or notepad++. I have recently started using Atom.

    Atom is great IMO for the lightweight editing , and powerful enough with extensions and such to handle the heavy lifting as well

    As a java Dev: Eclipse.
    People keep on telling me that intellij is much better and I have tried to switch a couple of times as well but to learn a new IDE and become equally productive in it is too much of a performance hit atleast for a couple of weeks ?

    I'm wondering if you have tried VS Code? I've heard from some Java devs that it's made some progress in becoming a viable replacement, but I am not a Java dev to be able to validate those claims.

    I have tried VS Code but only for some flutter and JS stuff. I think its alright but more of a text editor rather than a heavy weight IDE. I consider myself a fairly advanced eclipse user so quite honestly after fiddling around with a new IDE for a couple of hours my gut instinct tells me to jump back to the tried and tested. So I might be missing out on a lot of good stuff out there tbh.

    there has been a lot of progress on VSCode Java development... it's not quite ItelliJ, but it's VERY good and getting better every release.
    Every month the devs put out a blog post on their progress... https://devblogs.microsoft.com/visualstudio/tag/java/
    VSCode is by far the best polyglot text editor out there (imnsho) and has enough IDE features to make me never want to go to a big IDE again.

    amackenzie, you seem like you are well versed with both intellij and VSCode. Are you able to do a high level comparison of these ?

    This is my challenge as well! We're all so busy and it's hard to take time to fix something that doesn't feel broken.
