My tooling: Text Editor of choice for javascript and python

I normally use vi as my favorite text editor. This can be in terminal or in
MacVIM. But because I looked for a good editor with mutli OS support I tried
Atom. And I was suprised I really liked the workflow and sepecially the Markdown
Support. I know there is a vi on Windows but the compatibility of your setup is
limited.

So I looked in the internet for interesting article about transitioning from vi
to atom. And found the following:

  • http://edsko.net/2015/03/07/vim-to-atom/
  • http://blog.blakesimpson.co.uk/read/84-getting-started-with-the-atom-editor-and-tips-for-switching-from-vim-
  • http://felixjung.io/blog/2014/12/20/atom-form-a-vim-user/

And an intersting article why this is not a good idea:

  • http://www.reddit.com/r/programming/comments/2727fg/why_atom_cant_replace_vim_learning_the_lesson_of/
  • https://pascalprecht.github.io/2014/03/18/why-i-use-vim/

I will continue to let your participate in my journey. I will still open my vi
especially if I am in Terminal. But for I hope to find a good replacement for my
MacVIM.

To be continued …
