    Please consider adding these editors as well : Atom, Brackets, LightTable and Visual Studio Code. All are free and open source. I particularly like VS Code.

    Lime Text?! Gotta try that out. I currently use Sublime Text 3, WebStorm and PHPStorm.

    @Kaqqoa
    The list is always endless, it is good to mention to us any other text editors you have used.

    I was really hoping to see some editors that I haven’t known about forever…

    I have used JED a lot in the past as a Emacs clone with a small footprint, good to see it in your article.
    I now use jEdit http://jedit.org/ most of the time, cross platform and Open Source.

    I’ve been favouring the Qt based Eric for the last few months though it’s primarily focused on python there is alot of languages it handles well. You also missed the big new open source editor of the year atom

  8. Bruno says:

    Sublime Text, Light Table, Medit, Atom, etc…

  9. Alex says:
