#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.

There are many PHP IDE's currently available but PhpStorm just beats them all! It's availanle for every OS. Fast, Feature-rich, Customizable, etc etc etc. It just has it all! Highly recommended for any Web Apps Developer who takes his job seriously. This is the main tool that you don't want to miss.

RubyMine is my favorite IDE for developing Ruby. It integrates other tools like bundler, rake and Testcases in a comfortable way.

Writing software, navigating code bases, and refactoring code. Intellisense and click through are heavily used features here.

The best PHP editor. Also is a great MySQL/SQLite datasource browser, text editor, and I think it makes coffee too.

The best PHP editor available. We really don't know how we managed to do anything before using this fantastic tool.
