My typical use is to edit HTML and CFM pages from prior projects, and use them to create new ones. So, I rarely use the tools for designing pages provided in this application. I have found the ability to preview a page very useful. I am aware of numerous features in this editor, that simpler editors would not provide. It has proven to be a great fit for my use.

If you are already very comfortable and invested in one of VSCode's "competitors" such as Sublime Text or Atom, I suggest you just stay on that. They are still pretty good and VSCode isn't THAT much better to make the effort to switch. However, if you aren't tight with ST3 or Atom already and you use a dynamically typed language, then definitely hop on the train! VSCode is the future for all developers using JS, Python, etc.What if you're backend? Do you love or hate all the heavy weight features of Eclipse or IntelliJ? If they are getting in your way, I suggest you switch to VSCode, which is way more lightweight and not overwhelming to use.

  • VS Code is really good at allowing customization and extensibility. There are a ton of extensions to use for all types of workflow enhancement. In particular, the user snippets and keybindings really help me personalize the experience for my developing style.
  • VS Code works really well with Typescript. I really like the linting and IntelliSense that come with it. It makes the development process so much faster!
  • I like that it has an integrated terminal. The terminal makes it easy to execute programs, tests, and make git changes. Its all right there and easily opened with a hotkey. I love that you can even run as many as you want! so one tab can be running a webpack development server, another watching your tests, and another for making git commits. All without leaving the window.
  • The command palette is a nice touch. It's very easy to open with a hotkey and customizable to your own commands. Once you are familiar with all of them it makes your workflow quite fast, being able to open, run, change the configuration, etc all with simple commands.

Cons

CoffeeCup HTML Editor

  • Maybe I could list a con if my use of it was more diverse and consistent. It does everything and more for my purposes, and in ways I Iike very much.

  • I would like there to be a more "out of the box" default configurations for Angular projects. By default, Visual Studio Code does not honor tslint suggestions in Angular projects, and it creates friction between devs who are set up to honor Angular's tslint guidelines and newer developers who are not. Just a single choice to "configure for Angular" would be great.
  • I would also like to be able to use the Visual Studio Code as a "git merge tool" to handle merge conflicts. You currently can't do that in VS Code.
  • I'd like to be able to pin tabs like I can in Visual Studio, so I can keep certain files always open.

Solid tool that provides everything you need to develop most types of applications. The only reason not a 10 is that if you are doing large distributed teams on Enterprise level, Professional does provide more tools to support that and would be worth the cost.

This is a tool for programmers and it works like many others. If you are in the development world already then you will be sailing in no time with Microsoft Visual Studio Code. It is also great for new developers and it is very easy to use and you can get all the tools you need in one place as you begin to learn.

I am in love with programming after I started coding in VS Code. Since it is maintained by Microsoft, regular patches are applied to the IDE making it better and more usable. Microsoft customer support is very good, and they work really hard to solve any issue.

The best competitor to Visual Studio Code is probably BBEdit on Mac and UltraEdit on Windows. Visual Studio Code beats both of them on features, other than the lack of macro-recording/playback. As a bonus, it's free and open source. It's also being updated on a faster schedule than any of the other competitors.

Return on Investment

CoffeeCup HTML Editor

  • This editor certainly saves time in reducing my need to know and/or check coding minutiae.

Microsoft Visual Studio Code

  • VS Code has saved us countless hours of debugging our code, especially when comparing it to Sublime Text. Our Sublime developers can keep VS Code on hand to quickly perform a code analysis and the debugging features, even for PHP without deploying the code to a server, work great.
  • VS Code has likewise cost us time when we've opened large projects for the first time on a new computer and have to wait for the indexing to process. All IDEs and any code text editors that analyze your code drain resources when indexing for the first time, but VS Code seems to particularly eat up system resources.
