Hi,

 

What is the best code editor? I am using sublime text 3 for now as it has The Package Control and fast as well but want some suggestions over this.

 

Thank You in advance

The best is the one that is most suited to your needs.  for me it is Atom.

Yep. Just play with different editors until you find one you like.

 

I've been using IntelliJ for years, but recently started using VS Code and quite like it.

I am using textWrangler. It sounds good for me.

For me it depends on the task at hand, I flitter between NP++, DW, Atom and Sublime.

I have been using Dreamweaver 8 for many years, it still does the job.

Depends how you use it. The WYSIWYG editor can create rubbish code.

Going from VSCode to something like Dreamweaver would be like stepping back into the dark ages.

 

DW won't support things like ESLint, ES6 or JSX code highlighting, test suite integration, built in terminal and npm task runner, integrated Git tools.  I'd find developing without these tools to be a nightmare.
What about intellisense?  I bet it can't do any of that...

 

Essentially it's not a good tool for modern JavaScript development.
