Throughout my career, I’ve at least tried most of the available programming editors. More than two decades ago, I heard about the vi-vs-emacs debate, and made a pact with myself to use both for at least a year before deciding which I preferred. I started with vim, switched to emacs after a year, and decided I preferred vim. I joined the sublime-text bandwagon for a year or two in the early 2010s, switched back to vim in the middle of the decade, and eventually did the big switch to vscode.
When I first encountered the Internet my peers and I thought it was great fun to share our dev setups. We were always optimizing and always looking for new ways to optimize. Not to mention showing off. I lost interest in this practice because I settled into a system that was sufficient for my needs. Also, I didn’t have time! But I’ve recently made a ton of changes to my workflow that some might be interested in, and I happen to have some time as I’m between jobs.
