Tips for using NeoVim as devtool - 1
As a developer, one of the most important things is to find the right tool to write code with. To me, that means this tool needs to be lightweight, portable, and most importantly reliable.
Why VSCode is not for me
The first thing is that contrary to most popular belief, VSCode is NOT an open source product. Yes, part of the source of VSCode is open-sourced, but the VSCode you downloaded from Microsoft website is not. They have put some proprietary stuff into the end product and I'm not a big fan of that. There are ways to get around this, namely, there are several truly open source edition of VSCode, the one I used to use is called VSCodium, but then you will lose access to the extensions market provided by Microsoft.
Another thing that annoys me is that VSCode or any product that based on VSCode is just too slow and resource intensive -- they are just an electron app running on another Chromium based browser. Having one Chrome is enough for me, so thank you Microsoft (I tried to avoid electron based apps as much as possible, for example, I use web version of Teams, rather than the app one)
