What tools integrate with LiveReload?
I have chosen Visual Studio Code after testing a lot of other editors like Atom, Sublime Text (with legal license), Vim or even Notepad++ because it is the sum of all their virtues and none of their defects. It's fast, it has all the tools and plugins I need to work, and it's pretty and very good optimized. It has what I need to work and nothing more. And the main plugins works like a charm. Developing for React or Flutter is amazing. Even the TypeScript plugin works great. I like how IntelliSense works, and all the extra tools to code remotely using #ssh, access #RESTfulAPI or event manage projects or collaborating remotely. Thanks #Microsoft for Visual Studio Code.
When some regex or hardly scriptable but pattern-type problem occurs, I always go to notepad++. Also nice for file inspection (like image-meta).
Development Tool code editor - Open Source: Supports a wide selection of programming languages( C/C++, C#, Java, PHP, Python, or .NET.)
