Editor Features & Recommendations
There's a wonderful selection of powerful editors these days, but these are the two that I recommend considering.
These editors offer many, if not all the benefits that I listed previously.
WebStorm is currently one of the best editors available, however it's also the only option on this list that isn't free, but it does offer a free 30-day trial.
At Virtually(Creative) we use Visual Studio Code because it's free, it's fast, it offers a built-in terminal, it has excellent Git integration and node debugging, and it boasts a rich plug-in ecosystem.
Another option is Visual Studio 2019, a full-powered IDE that has a free Community Edition and is more focused on .NET or SQL.
Cool Story bro, but I'm back-end
I like to think about it like this: if you're writing both front and back-end code, there's nothing wrong with using a different editor on each side.
This is becoming increasingly common in a service-oriented world, where the technologies that we use on the back-end for services are completely different than those that we use on the front-end.
Using different editors for front and back-end development means that you're choosing the best tool for the job for each scenario.
