        Thanks! The only thing I can’t use it for, is android dev 😭 . Good java / kotlin tooling has essentially become owned by google and jetbrains.

        I was skeptical at first, but have come to love it. vim has become a frankenstein’s monster over the years, requiring plugins to do everything. helix comes with LSP / IDE support out of the box, formatting, multi-line editing, quick file switching, etc. It def has been useful for both rust and typescript.

          I’m a diehard vim user, but helix sounds nice. I’ll give it a try. If I can quit the editor in less than 10 minutes, that’ll be a win!

    For a full blown IDE, nothing comes close to IntelliJ family in my opinion. Still, I mostly use Emacs (Doom to be more precise) in conjunction with a terminal.

      For anyone who doesn’t know; Helix is an editor with vim like keybindings with more out of the box functionality than vim.

      I am using it too and like it.

      The only problem I ran into is that the search and replace function (across.multiple files isn’t very good).

        Oh thats actually what I used before switching to helix, it mostly has the same features but you don’t have to configure anything

        Downside is no plugins, but I’ve never felt like I’ve needed any plugins using helix

      helix is incredible, completely replaced neovim for me. Granted I never used many plugins outside of language servers, so it was fairly easy to not worry about a lack of features.

      This, I love how it allows me to use virtually every language there is within the same IDE. It needs some setup compared to most IDEs specialized for a specific language, but oh well

    Neovim is my most used editor, I use Gedit for a scratchpad, and when I’m in a bigger project I’ll sometimes run VS Codium.

    IntelliJ (with IdeaVim) for Kotlin and Java programming; Rider (with IdeaVim) for C#; NeoVim for everything else.

    Love me the Jetbrains apps. Webstorm in particular I use on the daily, and I love how everything works out of the box, unlike vscode where you need to install a whole bunch of plugins.

    That is, except for rust. I have no idea why, but the Jetbrains rust plugin is absolute garbage; it’s slow and inaccurately reports some errors while missing on errors the CLI would pick up. Rust is the main use case I have for using vscode, the language server there is rock solid, have had nothing but good experiences (outside of the pains of dealing with the borrow checker as a rust novice…)

      JetBrains IDEs are pretty good, it’s hard to beat them.

      My setup is same, except for Helix, haven’t even heard of it. Going to look it up.

    Not a developer here, I occasionally write scripts in bash/Python/go and sometimes tinker with php or ruby but mostly write yaml and asciidoc/markdown.

    I use vim, with lots of plugins, as my plugins list and my vimrc grew over the years it’s true it’s become some kind of monster but I just love it and every other I tried (probably not long enough) required to much mouse interaction.

      Lol I miss Eclipse, gosh and PHP. I still have Eclipse pinned to my task bar on my laptop for old times sake. Moved to Jetbrains years ago after initially holding onto Eclipse, but after using it for a few months I couldn’t deny Jetbrains was better anymore and made the leap.

        I’m sorry to hear that about your father! If it’s not too much trouble, can you please explain how it happened?
