So what about Brackets? I tried brackets around 6 months ago, but I was not very impressed with it as a Code editor. It seems like bracket’s target is more towards UI developers with the tight integration to Adobe’s ecosystem. But again I didn’t try the recent releases, So I can’t say much. Maybe I should give it a try again.
Another fantastic piece of software excels in a completely different area, The server side development. When I say server side development, I’m not talking about Asp.Net web forms. NO. I’m talking about what cool kids are up to these days, Node JS and Asp.Net v5.
I use VS Code for Node JS development mainly.
Here are the reasons why I like this editor.
Excellent Node JS Debugging Support
Feature rich editing experience in the editor
Typescript support is excellent.
Fast as #&(@#@&#^&.
Things I would like to see improve.
Plugin Support. I know the team is working on this feature but it’s very crucial at this point since there are small things missing in the editor and they could be written as nice little plugins.
Things are good so far
So far I’m happy with these two! Atom is for front end development and VS Code is for Node JS development with debugging. If I find a better alternative, I’ll let you know. You have a better alternative? Leave me a comment. I would like to try them out!
