Visual Studio CodeVisual Studio CodeAtomAtom

Visual Studio Code became available around the time my Atom editor started frustrating with hitching and slowdowns. It was likely some plugin I had installed, but a similar setup in Visual Studio Code ran just fine.

Since then they've made massive improvements, and turned it into an excellent IDE overall. I use only a fraction of its functionality, but unless you use some very obscure language, you're likely to find support for it.

Even out of the box it already supports much of what I need, and it now even recommends suitable plugins in many situations.
