Tried vim. Can't be fucking bothered. I'll just use the vim extension for VS Code.

    I am confused.You can't be bothered with it, yet you will try an extension for vs code? 0.o how does that work? was it using it on a terminal environment what you didn't like?

    @AleCx04 The conversion from a text editor to an IDE. Not worth it when I was only interested for the commands.

    @AleCx04 Same. If you already know most of the movements, finding the plugins is fairly easy in comparison.
    But hey, as long as you like your workflow, all is well.

    @Jilano I've seen a few people say it's quicker to set up on Linux as there are some issues on Mac (what I'm using)

    @odite Never tried on MacOS, but I did have trouble last time I tried on Windows (I couldn't get to download them automatically).
    Guess you'll have to give it a go :D (I suggest Vim plug as a plugin manager)

    @odite setting up vim does take time, using an extension on vscode also take out the performance

    Did you manage to quit it ?

    I hear vim has 100% retantion rate as noone can fogure out how to exit

    @odite I know, but I just can't resist every time I see vim mentioned :( Feel free to downvote, it deserves it

    If you're too lazy to configure all the plugins, maybe give SpaceVim a go

    @odite I got you. I use Vim on both my Linux machine (current one running Linux Mint) at home and on my macbooks and I have the same setup installed. There are ways in which you can add additional plugins to Vim to make it work like a full IDE much like you can extend VS Code with Javascript based plugins though. What issues did you encounter?

    I don't think you would find much productivity on Vim unless you really invest time to learn the commands, honestly I haven't gone that in deep on Vim, I know it well enough not to get lost, but do appreciate a good mouse when I am working. But, and just if you are interested, I can send you some useful links concerning how to make Vim a pretty powerful IDE :D, at the end of the day bro if you like VS Code there ain't really a reason to change. It is currently my number one platform for development but my projects ain't massive enough to warrant something else.

    @Jilano the filesystem for how both Vim and Emacs work on Windows is pretty fucky man! I do rather like how emacs works on windows tho ngl. About to try setting up Vim again on windows, last time I tried it was a beautiful exercise in frustration.

    @AleCx04 Never tried Emacs on Windows, but I'll give it a go just for the fun, ha!
    Anyway, I think the only "sane" way to use Vim on Windows nowadays is through WSL. That way you're bypassing most of the bullshit.
