There are several code editors out there for developing software programs or coding web applications.
Let's look at the top 3 best code editors and why the last on the list is the best among them.
1. Sublime Text
Sublime Text is a popular free lightweight text editor with support for a variety of programming languages, including Typescript, and runs on Linux, Mac, and Windows.
Despite the fact that sublime is not an IDE (Integrated Development Environment), it is handy for developers since it comes with built-in search, a distraction-free mode, and a highly customizable user interface. You can upgrade your sublime text editor for a one-time payment of $99.
Atom is an open-source cross-platform code editor that is highly customizable and has support for most programming languages with little storage space.
Atom allows real-time code sharing using a Teletype package and since Atom is owned and maintained by GitHub, developers can work with Git and GitHub directly from the text editor.
The modularity of Atom also makes it possible to be turned into an IDE for your preferred programming language by installing the package. There are over 2,000 packages and 600 themes available for Atom users.
Visual studio code is the best code editor on our list. "We love VScode" and it's highly recommended for software development.
REASON: Vscode by default is an IDE and it comes with a lot of extensions in the Vscode marketplace that makes developers' life easier; from customization to creating your code snippet, and running your own server directly from the IDE.
Deciding on what code editor to use depends on personal preference, but if you ask me, I'll combine VScode and Atom.
