I’ve been working with the web for almost 9 years now, and I’ve encountered a spectrum of web developers and their preferred tools during that time. Therefore, it’s always interesting to ask for someone’s favorite editor. Personally, I’m not a big fan of IDEs because, most of the time, they contain way too many things that I don’t need, they become slow to work with, and in the worst cases, you don’t have a 100% control. Therefore, I have always liked plain editors for writing code that is completely clean without any “smart” formatting added, code adapted etc. I want tools that just help me to easily insert snippets for code I use all the time, and for closing HTML tags. It has to contain a wealth of keyboard shortcuts, that can be attached to the snippets, and it should also be extremely simple to link a piece of text and insert an image.
