Lets talk about tools. Text editors, IDEs, color schemes, version control, etc. What does tohno use?

I'd like to know if anybody here uses Fossil as their VCS.

GNU Emacs is the only sensible choice. It's good for more than text editing and being IDEy.

I tried spacemacs. It was kind of cool, but also buggy and I didn't see enough of an advantage to commit myself. How do you define sensible?

I'll leave leaving a proper response to the person you replied to, but you shouldn't base your opinion of a program with 45 rich years of history on a young variant whose entire goal is to avoid being like the original program.

Sublime Text, switched to Geany because an update made the "please buy our license" notification more frequent.
Still, it's similar enough I don't feel my workflow affected that much, so as long as I can get things done it's fine.
I wish I had patience for Vim and Emacs...
Wordpad makes a better glitch image editor than an actual text editor

Is it fair to say the original variant messes up your pinky with how often you have to press ctrl?
I use kate myself.

I still use sublime text for general text editing or viewing any plain text file since it's lightweight, cross platform, and has all the features I need.

For instances when I'm doing full-blown coding, then I just use the respective jetbrains ide since the autocomplete and debugger are built in and just work there. I see everyone always recommending vim and emacs, but I find it hard to see how you can get a similar full-blown ide experience with that (integrated debugger, intellisense, automated refactoring etc.).

I've been messing around in vs code. It's actually pretty nice. The ux is slick and it starts up way faster than something like jetbrains. Didn't do anything complicated with it though.

I use Emacs, though admittedly I don't know how to use it too well and mainly use it for org-mode. I do a lot more writing than programming these days anyway.

Any experience with ?

I use a highly modified version of neovim-qt. I heavily use the remote attachment feature. I've been doing this for the past 3 years now.

I don't want to talk about vim versus emacs. Most emacs users call vim vi, and don't know the difference or why people use modern neovim.

Why did you have to highly modify it?

I've started using micro, a cross-platform text editor intended as a nano successor. Nice and intuitive with familiar hotkeys.

I also use it. It asking to sudo after you modify a system file is so nice

I wish it had parentheses matching. Maybe that feature is in there, but I haven't seen any documentation on it.

I recently switched from vscodium to Sublime 4 on my ThinkPad primarily due to performance issues. Having never used Sublime for more than a few minutes, I was quite interested in seeing how it stacks up.
In short, well enough. As implied, VSC doesn't play well on my laptop because of Electron and the machine's poor graphical power, but I've used it nonetheless due to it featuring the best support (via an extension) for the language I use. Sublime, on the other hand, is quite snappy, and its startup times are great.
Without additional packages, Sublime supports my favored language's with syntax recognition, okay-ish autocomplete, locating of definitions, snippets, and basic integration with the standard build tool. Very much of a pleasant surprise, and unlike the VSCode extension, nothing breaks, forcing one to reload the window.
Sublime is not without faults, of course: no built-in terminal, the best 3rd-party package providing terminal panes/tabs isn't that good, the built-in vim emulation and third-party packages providing it leave much to be desired, and there is no support for the language server protocol as far as I know. The latter would allow me to use much of what the VSCode extension provides, but I'm sure implementing the LSP is quite the task, and one wants to ensure it won't affect performance.
Nonetheless, I find Sublime to be pretty good, and I'd buy a license if I wasn't a poorfag. Even without LSP support, if the developers added a built-in terminal, and there was an updated third-party package that integrates with neovim, I would be a very happy camper.

I hope you didn't buy a really old model just for the memes.

Can't argue with $100, anon.
