I moved from gVim to Atom as a cross-platform text editor a few years ago, have just learned that they are "sunsetting" the editor. I am a big fan of VSCode and Visual Studio in general, XCode on MacOS but these are more fully-featured IDE's. What text editors will run on Windows, Linux and MacOS that offered the same flexibility as Atom? Seeking recommendations before I just go back to GTK+Vim and die a little inside. More info on the sunset for Atom 😢 github.blog/2022-06-08-sunsett

@hackerfantastic If you are okey with freemium sublime. (I miss having access to source code but app is build solid and no monthly payment needed)


@anant I definitely cannot use sublime, it needs to be open-source and I just can't bring myself to pay for such a simple thing - I only really need something for notepad.exe and Textedit replacement that isn't ImHex.

@hackerfantastic In that case my suggestion would be to use vscode may be vscodium with minimal plugins in it as your base text editor. Visual studio / Xcode can still handle complex setups.
