Does the productivity of a web programmer increase when using the Emacs or Vim editor?


Actually, subject. Is it worth switching to them in order to increase the speed and convenience of working with the code?


In my opinion, these editors have a gentle entry curve. That is, you will study them for a long time and get used to them, but when (and if!) You get used to it, your productivity will increase significantly. So it's a long term investment of time.

Keep in mind, however, that many IDEs provide good editing capabilities, too, especially program text. For example, Microsoft's Intellisense is very good for C# (subjectively worse for C++).

Try, compare, choose.
