Alas, yes.

This may well be the final push for me to start using emacs.

@ParadeGrotesque I've always disliked JetBrains products. I've never understood the love for them as I've found them bloated, slow, unresponsive, and, quite frankly, inferior to alternatives. But people love them...


Well, on a reasonably powered machine, they *are* responsive.

And coding with them -- especially PyCharm -- is a bit like magic: the IDE auto-suggest the next command and/or variable and is even able to suggest the completion for most libraries.

Add to this an OK support for vim keyboard commands and they have been my goto tools for a lot of stuff.

But not any more, not after seeing this.

@ParadeGrotesque I've never found their auto-suggestions to be better than anyone else (at least in the past when I've tried them...). And "reasonably powered machine" has usually meant "machine that neither I nor my employer has."

They're probably fine tools, but I don't have the hardware or patience for them.


After that screencap neither do I.

What are your go-to tools as a programmer? Asking for a friend...
