So, just started my new job (stoked btw). At the last interview - boss: what kind of OS do you work on?
Me: I'm a simple guy who uses windows and notepad++

First day at work - get a brand spankin' new macbook and endure the most unproductive day ever...

    also, if anyone has tips for an IDE (or a new job in general, fullstack on a magento platform) I'm open to it. After wasting 2,5 hours on sublime I switched to komodo. I really miss the switch lines command (ctrl+t) and duplicate lines command (ctrl+t). It has to work with ftp and ssh cert. out of the box.

    If windows and notepadd++ is enough for you, a MacBook with textwrangler do the job. Or install windows on it and enjoy.

    @stevenliemberg second shortcut is ctrl+d not ctrl+t

    @stevenliemberg was about to mention that notepad++ is the only editor with shortcut overloading b4 your fix 😉

    @stevenliemberg phpstorm is the way to go. Look no further.
    It does cost some money but your employer should provide you with that :)

    @cankarales thnx for the tip, tried storm at a previous gig but it didn't stick, I think the learning curve is to steep (also, my previous employer made me pay for it, Ill reconsider)

    If there's one editor I swear by, it's VS Code. Only gets better every month.

    I really liked coda. Now I work with phpstorm. Its really powerful. I like it.
    If you look for something easier go for Notepad++ or Atom.

    I work on macOS for about three years now and have tried some different IDEs over time. I work as a web developer so here is my list of IDEs that support that:
    If you like it simple, Sublime Text should work fine for you. Atom does provide similat functionality but is based around a web view which makes it easily customizable. I looked into Coda but it just didn't appeal to me. Seemed fine though. But the absolute killer in the field is PhpStorm. Takes a while to learn all about it but it also is a lot if fun to always discover new features. So far this programm hasn't seized to amaze me. If you want productivity at its best, I couldn't recoomend anything else from my personal experience.

    1. Use Homebrew for as much as possible 2. Dev environment using vagrant, or docker
    3. Phpstorm, sublime text, atom, vs code for IDE/EDITOR

    I heard vim is a pretty good editor.

    Those commands exist in sublime. Go find the shortcut settings. Are those your only issues?

    @helloworld or netbeans, or eclipse, or textwrangler, or ... 1000 others choice.

    @GriffinSauce mostly, also that it doesn't come with the ftp thing out of the box. Installing it felt counter intuitive - but I am a bit of a seth godin when it comes to the things, don't make me think...

    @stevenliemberg yeah I guess Sublime can do a lot but is pretty basic by default. I like that because there is less in there that I won't use. I guess having everything in there and ready to go works well for others. That feels more bloated to me ;)

    @GriffinSauce sublime? Feeling bloated? It's ridiculously fast.

    @Ashkin I meant a full IDE feels bloated compared to sublime with plugins
