        What are some alternatives to Vim and Vim Python IDE?
        Emacs
        GNU Emacs is an extensible, customizable text editorโ€”and more. At its core is an interpreter for Emacs Lisp, a dialect of the Lisp programming language with extensions to support text editing.
        Neovim
        Neovim is a project that seeks to aggressively refactor Vim in order to: simplify maintenance and encourage contributions, split the work between multiple developers, enable the implementation of new/modern user interfaces without any modifications to the core source, and improve extensibility with a new plugin architecture.
        Atom
        At GitHub, we're building the text editor we've always wanted. A tool you can customize to do anything, but also use productively on the first day without ever touching a config file. Atom is modern, approachable, and hackable to the core. We can't wait to see what you build with it.
        Notepad++
        Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.
        Sublime Text
        Sublime Text is available for OS X, Windows and Linux. One license is all you need to use Sublime Text on every computer you own, no matter what operating system it uses. Sublime Text uses a custom UI toolkit, optimized for speed and beauty, while taking advantage of native functionality on each platform.

        #TextEditor

        I liked Sublime Text for its speed, simplicity and keyboard shortcuts which synergize well when working on scripting languages like Ruby and JavaScript. I extended the editor with custom Python scripts that improved keyboard navigability such as autofocusing the sidebar when no files are open, or changing tab closing behavior.

        But customization can only get you so far, and there were little things that I still had to use the mouse for, such as scrolling, repositioning lines on the screen, selecting the line number of a failing test stack trace from a separate plugin pane, etc. After 3 years of wearily moving my arm and hand to perform the same repetitive tasks, I decided to switch to Vim for 3 reasons:

        • your fingers literally donโ€™t ever need to leave the keyboard home row (I had to remap the escape key though)
        • it is a reliable tool that has been around for more than 30 years and will still be around for the next 30 years
        • I wanted to "look like a hacker" by doing everything inside my terminal and by becoming a better Unix citizen

        The learning curve is very steep and it took me a year to master it, but investing time to be truly comfortable with my #TextEditor was more than worth it. To me, Vim comes close to being the perfect editor and I probably wonโ€™t need to switch ever again. It feels good to ignore new editors that come out every few years, like Atom and Visual Studio Code.

        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.

        Vim lets me edit the Markdown content of the Hugo powered site with ease. The low bandwidth needs means I can remote in and get changes updated without issues.

        Tool a while to get used to but one of the best things I have learnt recently, great training from Drew Neil over at VimCasts.

        Our developers use Vim, which is great for remote pair programming. We even have a serverโ€”Bruizerโ€”set up to host shared terminal sessions.
