Sublime vs Atom vs VS Code

As a software enthusiast, there is nothing which I love more than new technology. I keep my eyes open for phones, laptops and editors. Yes, you got it right. A programmer spends most of his time looking at the screen and from that most of the time staring at the jumble of words known as code. I like fast, good looking and easy to use editors. According to me Sublime Text, Atom and Visual Studio Code are the best options right now. I have used all of them in real world projects and here are my reviews.

Sublime Text

The oldest in the guild yet the fastest. You won’t be disappointed if you picked up this time tasted editor. I have used sublime the longest and I am always happy to use it. Though, I have faced few issues with linting and other extensions.

Pros:

Cons:

Atom

This editor is my favourite currently and I use this one mostly. It is made by GitHub and has a plethora of extension that makes it really useful.

Pros:

Cons:

VS Code

This is the youngest editor here, it is also based on the same electron core used in Atom. It has an amazing GitHub Interactive tool that makes life very easy. It also supports easy debugging for people into JavaScript.

Pros:

Cons:

Conclusion

I feel that all these options are amazing. It is a matter of personal taste than anything else. I find my comfort with Atom, but I do remember the speed of Sublime and amazing git tool from VS Code. Feel free to let me know if I missed something by commenting below. Thanks for reading…
