What is your favorite coding environment?

    I’ve never been a huge IDE guy. Not for any particular reason… just doesn’t work for me.

    I prefer something a little more lightweight. So, for the longest time, I was just banging out code in gedit (default Gnome text editor).

    However, I just recently discovered Sublime Text 2. Wow… I’m in love. Distraction free mode is awesome! I also love the bird’s eye view of all my code. The color schemes are great and I love that I can hide/expand code based on tags.

    It has WAY more features than a plain ol’ text editor but it’s way more lightweight than an IDE.

    So, what does everyone else use? What’s your favorite and why?

    There are numerous discussions on this topic if you do a quick search. I would say most people here use ST2.

    I’m using Zend Studio 10, mostly because of the PHP features. I’ve been using PDT before, which is free and also based on Eclipse. Grew up with Eclipse for Java so kinda used to it, but it’s definitely not lightweight. If I want some minor html, css or js done fast I use Notepad++.
