My vote goes to Gandi.
Here it is now:
How times have changed.
A hammer is great for Nails. A screwdriver is great for screws.
…Vim is great for text.
It’s not about love. It’s about truth. I correct what I can for posterity’s sake. We wouldn’t want someone to stumble across this thread and think you’re an authority on text editors and get bad advice.
@codeaholic Since I’m back… I’ll address this:
VIM to me is an old rudimentary UNIX text editor and that feels like going backwards for me since I know its history.
I defy anyone to find a text editor that is faster to use once you know it. The navigation and yank commands alone are miles ahead of any other text editor (with the possible exception of Emacs).
I understand that the modal paradigm is not for everyone. But it’s nothing if not efficient.
If you don’t like it… fine. But to say it’s ‘old’ and ‘rudimentary’ is just ridiculous and ignorant. It has more plugins than any other editor (with the possible exception of Emacs) and some of the best programmers in the world use it. Can’t be too bad.
Right. But why not just use a local server?
I’m not against Codepen. I love Codepen. But for me the big win is being able to show things… not necessarily prototype them.
I wonder if any of you know of an easy way to help automate the process of creating local WP installs.
@Steven if you use a Mac… just write a bash script for it.
I cannot resist.
What do you mean by this @Shikkediel:
and not having to upload the files each time.
You are not special
We didn’t say we are.
How do you know that’s all we know?
none of which are real programming languages
We know that… with the exception of JS, which absolutely is a real programming language.
OP’s handle is @codeaholic but he’s defending the virtues of WYSIWYG.
The irony is strong with this one.
Here’s a screenshot of my actual workflow:
Here is my coding environment:
I get all the functionality of Codepen/Dreamweaver on my desktop. Vim + Browser + Auto Reload.
I use GIMP and Inkscape sparingly. More so Inkscape for any custom SVGs I might need.
*Edit: Before I get any shit for it… I deleted several repos (client projects) on Github. That’s why my timeline looks so sparse :)
