    Sublime Text 3

    Sophisticated Text Editor For Code

    Every 6 months or so I stick my head out and look at others like Atom and VSCode. I always end up sticking with ST3 plus a few new plugins, can't recommend it enough.

    Best in the market. Extremely light weight. Has tons of plugins and ultra fast. I have used others too, but nothing comes close to Sublime Text 3.

    Good ecosystem. Numerous packages. I like using it. And I love supporting free or open source software.

    This is my go-to text editor. Super customizable and pleasant to use.

    Atom is the easiest editor to customize. And it is totally free and open source. What else ?
    CommentsShare
    • Atom feels as heavy as an IDE. It has a lot of plug-ins but I find that many feel broken. Looking at Activity Monitor on Mac, you can see it uses a lot of battery, and this is a dealbreaker for me. Unfortunately it's the only "IDE" for Julia (which, ironically, is a high-performance language) so I stick with it for these tasks.

      Awesome effort/work by the community though. It's too bad I don't agree with the choices the community had to make because I personally think this could have become a true "Emacs for the 21st century" text editor.

    Postman

    Postman is a powerful HTTP client to test REST API

    Better than all the API Development & testing tools available out there (including chrome plugins). Sync features, Collaboration & Collections make it more awesome.

    I use this tool on a daily basis to test my own APIs as well as APIs I'm looking to integrate with. I cannot think of a better tool to help with rapidly prototyping an API.

      I don't know why there is no cheaper alternative, does it make sense to pay about $1k for team of 10 !!!

    Adding onto what Brandon said, IntelliJ can also be used with numerous other languages and technologies, really just a great all around application.

    IntelliJ is the best Java editor on the market right now. It plays very nicely with Maven and Gradle and is nice to work with for local development as well.

    Amazing. Don't even have to be developing in Java to find IntelliJ IDEA streamlining your development. built in terminal and plugins make it amazing tool

    So much easier to work w/ S3. Web interface is kinda sketchy and SSH is a PITA.

    Fast, apart from being an avid IntellJ user, I have grown to their syntax highlighting schemes and all other notions. (Android Studio included!)

    Supports multiple accounts, Git and mercurial repositories, meaningful visualizations. I use this to manage all my open-source and client work in the same place. I hardly use the terminal for anything related to Git.

    Pretty awesome suite of tools bundled through Fabric for iOS development. I'm using Crashlytics, Answers, Digits, Stripe, and Branch & Fastlane for beta distribution automation.

    I'm naturally biased, but for native iOS and Android development with a focus on user experience, animation and writing less code, Fuse is the s#%t. :)

    Neovim is the future of VI* and has quickly proved to be ready for "daily driver" use. As a longtime VIM user it took very little to make the switch but I've been happy from the start. As for a more specific answer to "Why?" - the answer is "power and versatility"

    MJML App

    The only app that makes responsive email easy

    It just makes build responsive emails more pleasant. Live rendering allows you see the end result as you code and switching between Desktop or Mobile view you can see the responsive behavior in real-time.

    One of the few native Mac code-editors. Has a gorgeous innovative UI and is an absolute joy to use. Comes with a very nice CSS editor with Xray mode to preview and debug your CSS stuff. Also: a host of other features that need a website to be shown. About the only thing missing is an impressive list of plugins and extensions that some of the other editors have. But they're working on that. Note: v3 used to be. It's v5 right now, as the numbering scheme has been changed to 'Sketch format'.
