As the title states. What is your daily driver and why? Just want to hear what others think. Thanks!
vi/vim: It is available on every linux machine.
vi, not really a favourite as such and with a steep learning curve, but like @Steini86 i know it's always going to be on a server, so it's what i always end up using, so much so i keep finding myself typing :w, :q! and :wq in other editors...
and i absolutely hate emacs, don't know why, just never been able to get on with it.
Me too, I always type :x when using nano instead of vi *lol*
After I knew nano, I prefer using it until now, as it is very user friendly compared to vi.
Emacs. Been using microEmacs first, then full Emacs. I know how to use vim if nothing else is available. On Debian GNU/Linux command editor brings up a sensible editor (usually nano).
emacs is the most flexible and versatile text editor compared to other...
But the personal configuration of emacs is and will continue to be inherently just a big pile of disparate code, and the best way to deal with it is to leave it as it is...
nano, or if im feeling naughty and have a desktop...
sudo nautilus > browse > gedit
If we are talking coding..
For a long time it was notepad, then phpedit then something else, Switched to linux. Netbeans, recently I have just picked up VS Code, took me a little while to work my way around it, but I like how easy its extendible and some of its basic functions are just awesome. (switch between files in a single click from the folder tree, option to leave open files in settings).
So there are a few, I prefer an IDE like netbeans or vs code, those are my daily drivers just not for single file edits.
Never got to grips with VI, nano is far less complicated.
I simply use notepad++ for coding in windows, the best lightweight editor so far.
WOW, oh my days! You know that "and another". I couldnt recall the name, it was the first one after notepad, I think I went to it because of the line ending in notepad messing with php3. Oh man that was certainly some time back.
Nope can't have been me.
