I fucking LOVE SUBLIME TEXT. I know some of you are impartial to your fully featured IDEs, but personally I just love a good old text editor with syntax highlighting. Sublime Text is amazing, and that's pretty much the point of this rant is to emphasize how much I recommend everyone trying out Sublime Text.

    Sublime is sweet. I use it mostly as a text editor though. It's always on.

    vim right now, love the hotkey magic. But sometimes it is a little frustrating because some things are not as easy as they usually are. Planning to switch to emacs. @azous

    @magicMirror I love np++, have most of sublime features and is free. The main problem is that you can only use it on windows.

    Sublime text is pretty much dead. The developed was stopped for year and then wbond took over but the Dev builds are not public.

    The theme engine is also outdated and you need many package for functionality.

    This is not my word but the material UI design creator.

    I agree with him. I have used sublime text for last 3 years and I didn't want to move on. But step by step I am moving to vsc

    @sharktits VS Code is an IDE, not just a text editor. 😉
  • 0
    @irene It is. Look at it's built-in Git, debug and task defining support and the built-in terminal. And most importantly: IntelliSense (for some languages). That is included in the definition of IDEs.
    I don't get it why people still call it a text editor. The only reason that makes sense to me is that such people never actually tried it out. 😉

    I love my vim.

    @irene The plugins are not necessary for some languages like TypeScript.
    The only thing to need is set up is what and where to build.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
    "An IDE normally consists of a source code editor, build automation tools, and a debugger. Most modern IDEs have intelligent code completion. [...] Sometimes a version control system [...] are integrated."
    All of it is built into VS Code.

    @irene Why so? It's fullfills the simple aspects of an IDE...
  • 0
    @irene Of course VS Code is a source code editor.
    But it is also an IDE, because an IDE includes being a source code editor and everything else that is listed on your screenshot (Git, intelligent code completion etc.) 😄

    @irene Have you used it and tried out the mentioned IDE features in VS Code?
  • 0
    @irene Yeah, it may be a bit confusing at the beginning...

    If you need help at setting something up, I'm glad to help. 😉

    sublime is good but does not seem too productive with a large project. For small project its sweet

    @sharktits code editor is included when it is an IDE. And id definitely is an IDE by its basic definition.
  • 1
    @sharktits Btw.: VS is a code editor too... 🤷

    @irene @PonySlaystation @sharktits
    I think im with Pony on this one.. Anything with an integrated debugger is more than an editor. An IDE is just an editor with lots of extras integrated.
    btw, its no shame to use an IDE ...
  • 2
    @simulate no shame no proud in any of them. I just don't want to waste my time with an editor when I can use a fully featured ide

    @irene then what is an IDE? I dont see where you draw the line.
  • 1
    If I say genuinely then I am never satisfied with the code completion text editors like sublime or vsc provides. IDEs have so much power even if you ask for a basic feature such as autocomplete. I am not even going into debuggers and building the projects.
  • 1
    @irene actually to be honest I don't have much interaction with debuggers. I don't even use a debugger generally

    @irene
    hm, I installed VSC once and I thought it had the basic features that every IDE (but not every editor) has, like integrated build system and debugger, which for me really is the essential difference between an editor and an IDE. But maybe there are
    text editors
    code editors
    IDEs
    and VSC is a code editor because it is an editor specifically for code and therefore also supports features to fix and compile code..
    How about that? 😋

    @irene @PonySlaystation
    hm yeah in that case I think you are right
    although it is just a few clicks away from becoming an IDE

    whatever 😂

    @irene @simulate You don't need plugins to compile and debug TypeScript for example. You just need to tell the compiler where to put the output.
    I don't get it why you still believe it is "only an (advanced) code editor". That is not true by the definition of an IDE.
    You clearly have not used VS Code to be able to judge it.
    I use it for about 2 years every single fucking day and with the debugger anf Git for:
    TS, JS, PHP, C#, C++, C, CSS, LESS, SCSS, Python and SQL.
    Yes, SOME languages or build processes need a bit of configuration or a plugin, but that does NOT change the fact that it absolutely and undoubtedly IS an IDE.
    Other IDEs need configuration too.
    Even in VS you have to config the build path and compiler settings. Every IDE needs at least a tiny bit of configuration...

    Stop you misinformation please.

    Nothing personal.

    @irene what pseudocode?

    @py2js yeah I'm still a newbie programmer so I haven't really taken up any big projects, or even ones with multiple files for that matter. As of now I'm just writing scripts

    @Root @FrodoSwaggins As much as I like it's features, it's not open source so not coming near my pc's!

    @irene Yup I think closed source is evil indeed ;)
