If Bee switches from Vim to VScode, will she kick herself for not having done so sooner?
She doesn't have to literally kick herself. I will resolve this according to my best judgment. Relevant facts: She's a Ruby on Rails developer, CTO of Beeminder, she's not like a Vim guru, just extremely comfortable with it. She's wary of steep learning curves, likes using git from the command line, etc. Close date updated to 2022-05-17 11:59 pm
If you are used to Vim you will be used to its power - it is arguably more extensible than VSCode, and has as much language support. I am not a Vim person myself (tried it though), I am putting myself in the shoes of someone who uses it for daily driver for months? years?
Jump ship! Github Copilot alone is a good enough reason to move over. My own history of notable text-editor migrations: - Notepad - Notepad++ - Eclipse - Sublime (ctrl+d for multiple cursor selections ftw) - Android Studio for Android - VSCode for web - VSCode with Prettier autosave - VSCode with Copilot I'm hoping VSCode is the final boss!
