I’ve used VS Code for a long time, but have recently grown weary of Microsoft’s approach to OSS. I’ve checked out VS Codium which seems like it might be a great option.

What text editor are you using?

I do not code, so take what I say in that context. I use Geany because it does many things - and a guy who won a coding competition says he uses only Geany. Geany is far lighter than Atom (which is owned now by Microsoft). Geany handles markdown fairly well and I use mostly markdown. But, plan to learn a tiny bit of code. For terminal, i use use nano or something similar called micro. Both nano and micro can open/use markdown (.md) or .txt, and, though they cannot open .rtf, if i use Ranger terminal file manager, they can show the preveiwed contents of an .rtf file, but cannot open it to edit it that way. Geany can open .rtf if it has no graphics - so text only. If there is formatting added, though, it is an ugly sight. I am testing software on a slow HDD in order to have a very light, fast system and Geany does fine on it.

Cream is gVim, but with many features that should make editing easier for Vim beginners
i will try this out - - rationale :
.1) only 1/3 of “Kate” 's footprint (16MB download, 74MB on HDD ) on xubuntu 20 lts
.2) code folding (collapse and expand) and so many features even before plugins.

just yell at me if this is a huge mistake !

Kate and anything KDE is HUGEEEEEE. I hate KDE and won’t look twice at any program now that starts with the dreaded K.

My first computer had 3584 bytes of RAM, the O.S. was 16kB, so my feeling of “huge bloat” start at very small numbers 😆 !

Out of curiosity, which computer and operating system did you have at the time?

I use Neovim, LiteXL, and VS Codium depending on the project size and needs. no one tool suits all.

I use neovim with little plugins. But I still need to learn how it works properly (I’m really lost but at least I know how to close it) I want to turn it on to an IDE. VS Codium is a great option too

Have been using Emacs for over a decade, and I’m fairly happy with it.

neovim because the plugin ecosystem is vibrant and alive now that they can be built with lua: https://neovimcraft.com
