Not gonna lie, phpStorm is nice, it is also making me a better developer by reminding me to properly set exceptions, variables are initialized, etc.

Good investment. Using strictly Vim for the last 5 years, but I am really enjoying phpStorm with ideaVim plugin.

    For projects of any size in strong languages (and short scripts/text/docs), vim is awesome.

    For large projects in weak/dynamic languages, a fat IDE is almost a must.

    And as ugly & slow as full featured IDEs are, Jetbrains does make the best ones.

    All JetBrain products are great in my opinion.. Not cheap at all but there's always a way to get the programs (legally) much cheaper or for free. Great work!

    JetBrains gives you community edition for free, and students get pro versions for free. I don’t even study CS 😁

    yeah I am seeing that. Just having ability to see what functions are available from a class while typing without having to open that class and read it, then read what params go into it, makes things so nice. Didn't know what I was missing, and I am not even using the more advanced IDE functionality yet.

    Although I still use the shit out of grep in a second workspace terminal to find fuzzy shit I need, haven't found what I need to replace it in IDE yet.
