What are some alternatives to PostSharp and Xtend?
ReSharper
It is a popular developer productivity extension for Microsoft Visual Studio. It automates most of what can be automated in your coding routines. It finds compiler errors, runtime errors, redundancies, and code smells right as you type, suggesting intelligent corrections for them.
Castle
Castle looks for suspicious login patterns without bothering the legitimate user nor the site administrator. The fully-automated anti-hijack engine identifies potential account compromises based on where the user logs in from and how they navigate the site.
Spacemacs
Since version 0.101.0 and later Spacemacs totally abolishes the frontiers between Vim and Emacs. The user can now choose his/her preferred editing style and enjoy all the Spacemacs features. Even better, it is possible to dynamically switch between the two styles seamlessly which makes it possible for programmers with different styles to do seat pair programming using the same editor.
Atom-IDE
A collection of Atom UIs to support language services as part of Atom IDE, designed for use with packages built on top of atom-languageclient.
Kite
Your editor and web browser don't know anything about each other, which is why you end up continuously switching between them. Kite bridges that gap, bringing an internet-connected programming experience right alongside your editor.
