    Use any text editor with syntax highlighting. That's all you need.

      Syntax highlighting is bloat. Seriously, just try without for a few weeks. You won't miss it at all.

        I disagree. syntax highlighting that works means I can see where yaml shit is broken.

    I noticed that too. It was just a matter of time until it became as bloated as its father, Visual Studio.

        Protip: globally disable most extensions when you install them, and re-enable them per-workspace. Some extensions load when they aren't supposed to (C# is one of the biggest offenders.)

    IntelliJ is capable of editing and running multi-Gbyte jeet garbageware, so it's really just VSCode being slow.

        What is vim missing? It has syntax highlighting, it has autocompletion, you can compile and run scripts from inside it, you can edit multiple files at once, etc, etc, etc

    I had the same issue and using VScodium helped a ton. It's the actual open source core of VScode compiled for you without the excess stuff Microsoft adds.

    I've started using Visual Studio on Windows projects but the project structure is a pain in the ass when I want to add new files for shaders.
