Visual Studio Code vs WebStorm: What are the differences?
Visual Studio Code belongs to “Text Editor” category of the tech stack, while WebStorm can be primarily classified under “Integrated Development Environment”.
“Powerful multilanguage IDE”, “Fast” and “Front-end develop out of the box” are the key factors why developers consider Visual Studio Code; whereas “Intelligent ide”, “Smart development environment” and “Easy js debugging” are the primary reasons why WebStorm is favored.
Visual Studio Code is an open source tool with 77.4K GitHub stars and 10.7K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Visual Studio Code's open source repository on GitHub.
According to the StackShare community, Visual Studio Code has a broader appeal, being mentioned in 1085 company stacks & 2050 developers stacks; compared to WebStorm, which is listed in 456 company stacks and 940 developer stacks.

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.
I use Visual Studio Code because plugins. For choosing IDE, the most important part is not IDE itself, but plugins. Some may argues that Visual Studio Code is not IDE, but I like to call it IDE, any text editor can do debug is IDE. Visual Studio Code can do it, and can use ESLint and Prettier , so it's IDE.
I use Visual Studio Code because its fast, and has lot of extensions that makes development with many languages, frameworks and cloud services very easy. Also love the shortcut keys and the ability to customize the behavior of the IDE in lots of different ways. Another aspect of it thats nice is that it's very transparent. It allows us to see every piece of code, config etc. without automatically generating or hiding parts of it behind some GUI. So we will be exposed to every aspect of the development giving us better confidence and understanding of how the build, debugging, packaging, testing, publishing etc. works exactly.
Visual Studio Code takes writing code to the next level.
There is a great community out there, it is open source, it is lightning fast, and it just works out of the box.
It has a TON of useful extensions that can make the software do just about anything that you can imagine. It has GIT support directly within the software that doesn't require any extra plugins or configuration.
I have been using VS code to develop Angular 2 application, it is great a highly support of Angular Directives and Services within HTML tags. It ease the development process of understanding syntax as a beginner in web development
Don't use but a very cool theme to check out: Winter is Coming Theme
Also, as a developer who prefers using Linux as a workstation OS, I appreciate it being cross-platform.
