I found a new hobby: coding in many text editors (or IDEs) at the same time, because "I want to find out which one is better" (I don't know why I'm actually doing this, but I can't stop)

Wait, it's not a new hobby ... I already did this with C++ with using atom and Visual Studio at the same time, then I installed Clion too and VS and Clion were both running along with atom ...

    @gitpush did I mention that chrome with at least 10 opened tabs is running in the background too? 😂 And I don't have the best hardware, sometimes I have firefox and chrome opened at the same time with multiple tabs, not to forget devRantron and discord and I don't know what else

    My style is every language\framework has a different editor :)

    I currently use Sublime Text 3 && Intellij Idea and it really giving me headaches. IntelliJ has everything outside of box (except a theme I installed). It knows about my files contents and autocompletes my variables, functions etc. and knows my languages. Also the refactor function is a really helpful feature. However it is a bit expensive for my budget. On the contrary in ST3 I have to install everything and still don’t get the perfect env. Everything feels like I’m in a collapsing house.

    Do you know any editors that are close to IntelliJ Idea and free/can buy (not subscription model)?

    @godot there were people waiting for you! And you never came 😱
    Okay now back to seriousness:
    Do you mean the languages in your description? I'd recommend you VSCode maybe, it has some IDE functionalities already built in, but you still have to add many things as extensions I guess

    @godot or if you want a full IDE eclipse

    @theNox But I will eventually :) I only heard/read all the hate on VScode (and didn’t know it’s available on OS X too) Might I just give it a try. Do you use it? Does it have any cons? PHP, sass, js and MD btw

    @godot I only started using it, so I don't know, but I on the contrary have heard only praise about it

    @godot I am currently switching from Sublime to VSCode. You need to install an extension for every language, but that's OK, takes only a few seconds. All in all it kinda feels better.

    @theNox Never talk about eclipse again. This piece of horrible software should be burning in hell.

    @Forside please tell me what is horrible about it except that it has an ugly UI

    @theNox It's slow, buggy, and nearly cost me an exam once because it failed working properly.
  • 0
    @theNox "nearly" because I had enough points already to pass, but the eclipse bug still cost me many extra points so I went out with a 4.0.
  • 4
    @Forside okay, that's an explanation
    Not everything works for everyone. For me it always worked fine and my Dad uses eclipse for many years professionally (Over 15 I think). It's definitely not the best IDE out there but also not the worst.
    @ygqw I had big problems with Visual Studio too. First with the installation process, then when I was running my code I got the strangest errors that I got nowhere else and the messages didn't help solving the bugs, so I had to try something else. Do I say that it's a horrible piece of software? No, because I think for many people it can work well. And I ended up using it again later, it just wasn't very beginner friendly.

    What does it even mean to be the best software? I mean everyone has different needs and maybe this is better for this and that is better for that, but outright saying that because it once crashed or something it needs to burn in hell? Hating on a piece of software won't make it better.

    @theNox @ygqw
    Weird, I hadn't have any problems with VS and consider it quite a good software.

    It's not like it was only that one bug. I was using Eclipse for a long time until I finally found IntelliJ, and it was like day and night. Have never touched Eclipse since that day.

    @Forside see? Everyone has different experiences 🤷 I think there are other factors involved than just the software itself, maybe it's the OS or the hardware it's not working well with when you get problems or idk

    @ygqw I didn't say that I don't like vim and emacs. I'm just not going to use them any time soon, because I'm not so comfortable with those kind of editors.

    Update: I'm using Gedit, VSCode and Intellij at the same time and on Windows atom and sometimes nano when I'm ssh'd into the uni server
