Microsoft has announced it is sunsetting the Atom project officially on December 15, 2022.

Does anyone have any suggestions for alternative code editors? I am trying VS Code, but I just want to try to get away from Microsoft products.

I've considered Sublime, but I want to stick to open source.

We briefly discussed alternative editors recently, but I haven't got around to putting my full two cents there yet. From other web developers I have worked with many seemed to like the Sublime Editor which from my understanding is very similar to Atom.

Personally I absolutely love PHPStorm, but that one is not free. It is by far the best IDE editor I have used for PHP development, I love the debugging tools.

I have also used Eclipse PDT in the past before PHP Storm, but that one was a little clunky and the performance wasn't so great. However, that was a long time ago and perhaps it is better now, I believe that one is open source.

I may have found a solution! (without Microsoft's pesky telemetry)...

    I've been using VSCode for quite a while now. I know the OSS version used to have pretty poor extension compatibility but I think that's been resolved for most of the major/trusted extensions. — spork
