Devs and plugin / theme devs, what editor do you use?
I would put a poll in, but it looks like the plugin isn't enabled?
Anyways, I started with Notepad++, used Gedit, moved on to Atom, then tried out Brackets (buggy and slow) and Sublime 3 (fewer features than Atom), and now I'm back to Atom.
I am kind of off put by Github's use of Coffeescript (wtf Github?), so I haven't started creating any plugins or anything in Atom (as their lack of JS docs makes it really f*cking hard), but I really like the editor and the availability of plugins more than Sublime (for instance, previewing Markdown in Sublime requires opening a browser page).
BTW, I've heard that Webstorm is nice, but I hate Java, so that's never happening (I'd rather use Visual Studio).
I usually use Notepad++, but Webstorm is great too if I need more features.
For Java I usually go with NetBeans.
@markkus if you like ST3, you'll love atom. Every plugin that exists for ST3 that is popular has a corresponding plugin in Atom. Plus, atom has a GUI build in for installing, updating, disabling, configuring, and removing packages. The increased flexibility of Atom also allows for the packages to do more.
Atom is essentially a hackable, better version of Sublime.
