We use text editors to write documentation in Markdown and to develop code.
Editors you may like
- Vim: Installed on OS X and Linux by default. Also available on OS X via Homebrew.
- Emacs: Installed on OS X and Linux by default. Also available on OS X via Homebrew
- Visual Studio Code: VS Code is very extensible with lots plugins. One great plugin for pairing is Live Share, which supports live editing of the same file, sharing a terminal session, port forwarding to the host’s computer, and even audio.
- Sublime Text: Request a license. If you use Sublime, you may wish to customize your packages. Feel free to ask others about their recommended packages. Notable mentions in past Slack discussions include:
- Color Highlighter (turns color codes into the actual color)
