I use VSCode when coding, and Sublime when working with just text.
I don't think there's anything VSCode can't do or has an extension for.
And being able to manage everything Git related (PRs, Blame, File/Line history) directly inside VSCode is fantastic.
Jumping between languages seamlessly, integrated terminal (control server via SHH), Live Sharing code, SSH and WSL remote coding and so much more.
Just the fact that I can keep all my code on my server and access it via any VSCode installation seamlessly, it's like it's a local project, then invite anyone to help me live code just makes it the best.



Keep it simple.

That VSCode looks interesting. Would it work with Blitz3D?

Would it work with Blitz3D?

I don't think anyone's made a Blitz3D extension for it (so much for "it's got an extension for everything!").
And I honestly didn't even know Blitz3D still worked on modern machines...
But you can use the default build tasks to launch the Blitz3D compiler and link it to your source.
Which will be more initial work than just hitting Build of course, and is what an extension would sort for you automatically, but it should still work.
Syntax Highlighting will be a different beast and will require an extension to tell VSCode what regex to use.

I've made a BlitzMax extension for VSCode though, which you can find here: https://www.syntaxbomb.com/index.php/topic,5771.0.html
It supports Legacy BlitzMax and supports BlitzMax NG even better.
You could use the source and adapt it for Blitz3D.
Keep it simple.

This is really freaky combination of colours..

by the way i don't know what kind of button above members talking with BLIDE
well also BlitzMax IDE - Community Edition looking to me very nice and good enough.
I really don't know why some users expected such a amount of features
i know some programmers which use just Notepad for his coding...ok it is little bit hard core :o

I don't get it. You can actually work with that colour scheme? Sorry, but I couldn't hack that at all.

Asking for return button ain't too much to ask.
People who program in notepad probably not facing the project size i do..

Complaining is part of way to improve stuff
Especially when you pay on something.
If it wasn't important i would not have mentioned it..

Besides, the developer of blide also made jungle ide
And their he did implemented back and forth botton.

Programming with notepad is dumb
Unless you have no choice.

You can also program with wood with Carving

Mainly it's to make the tedious stuff, like Git related things, easier.
And some modern projects, like a NET Core project would be hell to setup without an IDE.
But as I said, I use Sublime a lot, which is just pure text.
But then I have to launch a bunch of apps on the side to get things done.
And in worst case scenarios, like with GitHub PRs, I have to actually navigate to a webpage to get the information I need.
So I might as well use something that has everything integrated already, and something that works with most languages. :)
But I really do like simplicity as well, and I strongly recommend Sublime!
Keep it simple.

Keep it simple is one thing. keep it flawed is another..

I may be blunt to some people, but at some issues as important as IDE I cant take it lite.

Ive always criticized IDEs, I think and Im certain that high IDE level allows high level coding
and vice versa.

An advanced IDE should including a Flowchart style of Editing.. Something graphic..
but thats not the case..

I have my own perspective of how things should be.

BLIde for BlitzMax is probably my favourite, Notepad++ for other stuff if that counts.
