Which text editor should I use?

Paulo Abreu

<p>The best text editor (or IDE) is a personal choice.</p> <p>My best advice to you is to choose one for your daily work and stay with it for at least 3 months. Try to learn something new every day. Then choose another tool and start again. Mastering and editor is time consuming, and is never a waste of time; you will always learn something <span style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255); color:rgb(95, 99, 102)">useful</span>. With time, you will realize what makes you more productive.</p> <p>Some developers claim that VIM (or Emacs) is what makes the difference between a kid and a man. David Heinemeier Hansson, the rails author, uses textmate:</p> <p> </p> <blockquote> <p>After all these years, programming Ruby through TextMate to make Rails dance for the web remains one of my favorite activities in the world.</p> — DHH (@dhh) <a href="https://twitter.com/dhh/status/546759382453600256">December 21, 2014</a></blockquote> <p> </p> <p>And <a href="http://about.avdi.org/">Avdi Grimm</a> <span style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255); color:rgb(95, 99, 102)">admitted</span> that is spending more time with RubyMine, a Ruby IDE, than with Emacs.</p> <p> </p> <blockquote> <p>I think it's time I admit it: for Ruby projects, I spend more time in RubyMine than I do in Emacs anymore.</p> — Avdi Grimm (@avdi) <a href="https://twitter.com/avdi/status/606114639869407232">June 3, 2015</a></blockquote> <p> </p> <p>A particular texteditor won't make you a good developer. The common denominator among good developers is hard work.  </p> <p> </p>
