VS Code is a Behemoth

The Era of Visual Studio Code | Roben Kleene

VS Code is the most popular text editor today. It’s so popular, that it could be the most popular GUI programming tool of all time. Since 2015, Stack Overflow has included questions about text editors in their survey

Sublime Text was the king for a little bit and then VS Code came on the scene and blew everyone else out of the water. I’ve been trialing Panic’s new Nova editor for the past week, and while I like it, it’s hard to say it’s better than VS Code.

Serious kudos to the folks working on making VS Code not only the most popular editor out there, but easily the best and most robust one that anyone can enjoy, whether they’re new to apps like this or whether they want to get in deep and write their own extensions.
