After using SublimeText, Atom, Brackets, ... in the past, VS Code has become my IDE for the past several years and I won't switch back! Works really well, with many useful extensions to improve my coding experience 🙏

I love VSCode and you should too, especially if you're into stuff like VueJS and TypeScript. First off, this thing eats large text files for breakfast. You know those bulky logs or huge JSONs? Opens 'em up in the blink of an eye. But let's talk aesthetics. The themes are a visual feast. Honestly, it's like the IDE knows how to set the mood for a late-night coding session. The colors pop, and my eyes are like, "Yeah, we can do this all day." Extensions? They've got some killer ones specifically for VueJS and TypeScript. It's like turning your coding environment into a Swiss Army knife, no joke. And.... the peer coding feature is next level. Once you get into VSCode, everything else feels like you're coding with one hand tied behind your back. It's that good.

Although Sublime is my workhorse for being light-weight, sometimes you need a gas guzzling luxury SUV for intense tasks like mass-replacing code across multiple files. VS Code is this SUV, and does not fail to deliver in times of need.

Great support for TypeScript, but also great extensions for languages like Go and Rust. I like that it's lightweight from the start, and you can make the editor more full-featured with extensions, but it's up to you.

One of the best IDEs out there. Possibly the most friendly, easy to use free IDE I've ever used. It has a substantial plugin ecosystem and is probably the most used IDE for all people starting their coding journey. Another thing Microsoft actually did right. :)

My constant companion in writing code. Allowing me to chop and change my development experience to each project I work on. The shame is that parts of the tool are proprietary and clunky. For instance, the remote tools consistently expect to download the server-side-component, sometimes multiple times a day.
