What we like
It’s very fast! The focus on performance really shows - launch speed, memory, insertion latency are all best in class. Supports Vim-mode. Every buffer is a CRDT which allows real-time collaboration like Google Docs. Language server built-in - auto detects based on the file. GitHub Copilot and OpenAI are built in (opt-in).
What we don't like
Basic Git support. macOS only. Very minimalistic - it’s still early in development so many of the features you might expect from VS Code or JetBrains are missing. But if you want a simple text editor-like experience with the necessary bits from an IDE, it’s in a good state.
Console is the place developers go to find the best tools. Each week, our weekly newsletter picks out the most interesting tools and new releases. We keep track of everything - dev tools, devops, cloud, and APIs - so you don't have to.
