I was waiting for someone to say this. Merci beaucoup, Thomas!

That would be my choice on Windows, I think.

PS – what is the development status of SublimeText?

I remember seeing this joke back in the 1980’s:

The only Electron app I use now is GitHub Desktop, and that’s only because I’m lazy.

That just made me decide to start using git on cli immediately. I don’t want to be a git expert, but at least be competent enough to use it regardless what code storage platform I may choose.

And, yes, more emacs exploration is on the radar, though not for editing code, really.

More general cli practice for my linux transition.

I’d love to be able to move to Linux (especially elementary OS) but I’m too invested in Apple’s ecosystem.

I can’t get elementary OS to play nice with my iPhone and iPad and sync my emails, calendar, and contacts from iCloud. I also haven’t found apps that are as polished as the ones I use on my Mac with decent syncing yet (Nova, Pixlemator, Ulysses, Things, etc) and trying to get DaVinci Resolve working was a nightmare, the amount of time I had to spend in the terminal was insane (and don’t talk to me about updating graphics card drivers to make sure I had the correct ones installed). The last issue I had is that I need to run Microsoft Office and Teams for work.

For me Linux is something I use to power my servers and desktop Linux is more of an intreating hobby rather than something I’d use to get stuff done.

Just a note to add I’m not disparaging desktop Linux or anyones decision to use a particular distro. I’d love Linux to become mainstream as I believe we could do with another option that isn’t Apple or Microsoft. It’s just unfortunate that Linux falls short of what I need personally.

Re: IDE / text editor of choice, Q4 2020 edition

Bumping this for somewhat selfish reasons. Nova doesn’t appear to have a support forum, Panic doesn’t have much in the way of a support ticket system (I’m excluding their contact form with Problem Report as that implies reporting a bug or similar).

I’ve updated from Nova 7 to Nova 11, and my projects seem to have mostly come across without issue. Visual furniture is different, and there’s a comment shown at the end of each line with the most recent change metadata:

  • the commit author
  • the date (roughly)
  • the commit title

e.g., Pete Cooper, 4 mo ago, – todo~

These are all single tenant repos, and I don’t care for the most recent commit details…so, they can be turned off, they’re quite distracting. I cannot fathom how to turn these things off since I…er… don’t know what they’re called…so I can’t search effectively for the answer.

Any feedback most welcome. Thank you!

Go to Nova’s Settings › Git pane › Turn off Show authors for selected lines.

See here in the help

If you still want to know on a one-off basis, you can right-click on the row number (or anywhere in the row) and choose “Show last change for this line” (or similar). It will then show you a tooltip for that line.
