I'm starting a clean Sierra installation and I've been using Sublime in my old installations but I wanted to asked you coding monkeys:

Atom, Sublime or Brackets?

    I've used them all and still haven't found a favorite. Currently I'm using a modified version of Eclipse.

    @fyroc thanks, although I also use it for regular text and file edition, that's why I not looking for a full IDE.

    BTW eclipse rules

    @geronimo same here... when it's a small simple Web app I used Sublime but for more complex Web apps I use WebStorm

    If you have an extra $99 laying around, try Coda.

    @jmcaicedo well, I mostly use pycharm, but I'm learning some c++, so I downloaded the trial version of clion. Also tried datagrip, for database management. They are all great, I'd like to buy them all... 😄

    Depends. I love atom but I do front end stuff, not sure how it works for more robust languages

    @humanbonsai yep I need it mostly for front end

    You could also give VS code a chance

    @scrupulous my Sublime looks just like Atom after a few plugins installed using Package Control. I did need the performance of Sublime but wasn't too fond of their normal look. :P

    Give VSCode a try. It's shaping up great

    Atom if you don't want a messaging every few saves making you feel bad for being stingy.

    Also its flipping awesome

    Atom seriously I love it ... including the black finish it is just mystique

    @jmcaicedo then definitely give atom a try, it's a nice out of the box editor that has a lot of customization opportunities. (Get the Beautify plug in it's a life saver!)

    VS Code FTW

    I use Atom. It's easily the best looking, excellent packages are available for download, and it's not cluttered with a million features. I really like it. 👍

    VS Code, you might think 'but that's microsoft!' That's true. But the I would say 'get over it'. It's great, give it a try.

    Yep. VS Code. Switched from Atom a few months ago. I really like it. :-)

    @StefanH VS Code has icons baked in now. Before it was via an extension.

    I prefer Vim, used sublime, atom not much i like. Plus i'm not a person who into IDE

    Atom all the way!

    @zorig I do miss vim, but vim-mode-plus nearly gets Atom up to spec, enough so the convenience outweighs the extra power.

    Nearly. I switched to Atom just as I fully grasped buffers. And I miss macros.

    Brackets + Emmet is awesome if you're gonna do HTML and CSS! I prefer Atom for the JavaScript part though ;)

    Brackets is slow. I switched to VSCode when it first came out and highly recommend it.

    @spongessuck I used VSCode but it sometimes did some weird things and I didn't like that :(

    @meseguer1998 Hm, never had a problem with it.
