I love VSCode and you should too, especially if you're into stuff like VueJS and TypeScript. First off, this thing eats large text files for breakfast. You know those bulky logs or huge JSONs? Opens 'em up in the blink of an eye. But let's talk aesthetics. The themes are a visual feast. Honestly, it's like the IDE knows how to set the mood for a late-night coding session. The colors pop, and my eyes are like, "Yeah, we can do this all day." Extensions? They've got some killer ones specifically for VueJS and TypeScript. It's like turning your coding environment into a Swiss Army knife, no joke. And.... the peer coding feature is next level. Once you get into VSCode, everything else feels like you're coding with one hand tied behind your back. It's that good.
VS code is one of the best text editors available online, the best thing about it is that its free and there are hundreds of extensions available in VScode which increases productivity of developers working on any stack.
Great support for TypeScript, but also great extensions for languages like Go and Rust. I like that it's lightweight from the start, and you can make the editor more full-featured with extensions, but it's up to you.
One of the best IDEs out there. Possibly the most friendly, easy to use free IDE I've ever used. It has a substantial plugin ecosystem and is probably the most used IDE for all people starting their coding journey. Another thing Microsoft actually did right. :)
