Code editors are important to developers. Years ago, I just only knew Notepad++. Then come Sublime text, which was “The Editor”. However, recently, Atom and then Visual Studio Code appear. I tried VS Code and love it.
The big downside of VS Code is its speed. It’s quite slow, in compare with Sublime text, which is blazing fast. However, VS Code has its very own strengths:
- GIT integrated.
- Being updated regularly.
- Key binding. Tons of them and all are configurable. And each update introduces bunch of new key binding/commands
- Its extension, especially VIM and Python.
- Integrated terminal for testing.
