If it's good enough for Wes Bos…
IDE / Text editor
I've used a variety of IDEs and text editors over the years.
I started in Notepad, then a proprietary PHP editor called SellerDeck for a couple of years.
After a stint of JetBrains' PHPStorm, I moved over to Atom (RIP 💀) and, eventually, to VS Code.
I tend to switch my theme up a lot depending on the mood of the day…
Something always stay the same though:
- Predominantly dark themes
- Almost no red!*
I mostly use Armand Philippot's Coldark (Dark) although I am partial to a bit of Sarah Drasner's Night Owl and Alve Svarén's Arc Dark.
Right now, I'm using Ahmed Abdulrahman's Aylin beacuse I'm doing a lot of React work and it's particularly good for JSX.
It all depends on how spicy I'm feeling today! 😜
*My coder brain sees it as an error so it can't be used for anything else - too distracting!
