    Prettier

    We use Prettier because when we rebooted our front-end stack, I decided that it would be an efficient use of our time to not worry about code formatting issues and personal preferences during peer review. Prettier eliminates this concern by auto-formatting our code to a deterministic output. We use it along with ESLint and have 1st-class support in our WebStorm and Visual Studio Code editors.

    #Help

    When I switched to Visual Studio Code 12 months ago from PhpStorm I was in love, it was great. However after using VS Code for a year, I see myself switching back and forth between WebStorm and VS Code. The VS Code plugins are great however I notice Prettier, auto importing of components and linking to the definitions often break, and I have to restart VS Code multiple times a week and sometimes a day.

    We use Ruby here so I do like that Visual Studio Code highlights that for me out of the box, with WebStorm I'd need to probably also install RubyMine and have 2 IDE's going at the same time.

    Should I stick with Visual Studio Code, or switch to something else? #help

    I work at the same company as you and I use WebStorm for 99% of my tasks. I also have RubyMine installed and use that when I have to tweak some backend code. I tried using RubyMine for JavaScript but was unhappy with how it felt and I believe that WebStorm is faster because it has less plugins and language extensions running. Summary: Buy and use WebStorm for primary development and keep VS Code around for when you have to touch Ruby.

    How developers use Eclipse and WebStorm
    Avatar of Cloudcraft
    Cloudcraft uses WebStormWebStorm

    WebStorm is the best IDE hands-down for JavaScript developers. Yes, there's more lightweight editors (and nothing beats vim when debugging remotely), but the sheer productivity of WebStorm is unparalleled. React/JSX support? Check. ES2015 support? You bet. Node.js profiling? Yes! Look, if you can't rename a class or variable reliably across a JavaScript project, follow references, debug (without console logs) your editor sucks. Don't use a editor that sucks, use WebStorm!

    Develop and debug Java code using standard Eclipse distribution. No special plugins; standard Maven and Git integration.
