What is everyone's favorite text editor and why?

For me I'm usually switching between Emacs and Atom, and not really a text editor but Visual Studio when I have to *shudders*

I like Emacs for the customization aspect, and I'm not sure why I like atom but some of the features that I like are mutli line editing, easy snippets, and pretty simple packaging system.

I use the vim mode for both

As for editor theme I use primarily solarized dark, but right now I using a Halloween theme because it fits the month better

Im lazy and just use geany on linux and sometimes text wrangler on OS X. I started playing with atom a bit, but like why does it lag? It is the only text editor Ive used that lags.

Performance issues are because atom is built on electron


I don't have any lag problems with it? When was the last time you used it? It has pretty bad performance issues but nothing to bad for me. To be quite honest I really only follow it because I feel like it will be great one day. Currently I can't recommend it, you are better off with Sublime Text 3 which Atom is almost a carbon copy of.

I use Atom and Sublime Text. I mainly use the monokai theme on both of them.

because it's written in js and is not a native application.

Vim. It's what I know.

I don't use syntax highlighting, so the theme is just whatever I have as fg/bg colors in my terminal.

Its been about a week or two since i tried it. So not that long, when I use it on windows, basically unusable but that is understandable it is windows in a VM(but a vm with 4 gigs of ram and 2 processors with 100% execution cap). OS X the lag is not that bad but still lags a little. Text wrangler is basically sublime as well from what I understand, I have actually never sat down and used sublime, hear good things.

Geany has been my editor of choice for a bit but lately ive been enjoying using OS X on my macbook, so text wrangler a lot lately.



As for theme im using solarized dark on text wrangler and geany. Just used the default theme in atom when I was playing with it.

That explains it.

Sublime Text master race. At some point I used notepad++.
Sublime Text is beautiful, though. I use 3, but 2 is alright too.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

Sublime is nice all around.
I'm getting into Vim, but it's hard to learn.
Nano is really nice for basic stuff.

I like using vim but sometimes I find myself turning off vim controls for more "complex" editing, which kind of kills the point of using vim in the first place.

I tend to use notepad++ for the code highlighting, because I often forget the closing semicolons;

I'm using nvim right now. I'm thinking about getting into emacs though because I've heard the plugin support is much better.

Might I ask why? Do you find it distracting?

I use almost exclusively nano, not because I think its the best or anything, I just needed something to use a long time ago and haven't had time to learn anything that might be better. Also whenever I use anything else I always use C-o C-x when I want to exit and that never helps much at all.

I use open source text editor from Adobe named Brackets. It's really great especially for anybody who loves to make the web.
Notepad++ is alsoa great choice because it's simple, and no lag.

I use notepad. I don't really have a need for a good text editor because I'm lazy and unproductive.

I use Sublime or Atom. Notepad/nano if it's just a small edit, and IntelliJ IDEA if I'm doing Java.

Vim has been pretty good to me overall today (just started), but I feel clunky. I need.. minimalistic things to work around. It hurt my brain a lot today while doing php.
