I always use nano for config files but when I get into PHP and such my choice is gedit. I feel to comfortable with it to change to something like VIM..

That's because you forgot to alias jj to <esc> in the forum's .vimrc

Hmm, I've only gotten introduced to programming last summer, and since then I've been using sublime text. It's quite wonderful, and has the option to introduce the Vim commands to it.

I've never used Vim, but I'm intrigued by it. Will definitely check it out later on. But for now, Sublime sounds wonderful.

Vim is a monster at first, but once you get the hang of issuing commands and inserting characters separately, it's all downhill from there for simple usage.

Vim for me please. Works great for any config file editing and the limited web develpment I do. Quick and easy with great plugins. Quite a large community as well.

I've read amazing views from some friends and people online, and how it can drastically increase your workflow assuming you're programming for hours on end. I'm a bit excited to try it, at the same time I know I'm going to hate it at first:P

I've been using mg lately, very light and it uses the comfy basic emacs key bindings :)


RE: Favorite text editor? - Bones - 30-03-2014

I pretty much use nano for everything, although I've been digging into mg some, too, since installing OpenBSD. On the Mac, I use TextWrangler.
