Julia’s IDE integration with Atom through Juno is superb. It seems that a lot of effort has been put into Juno to make the Julia experience first-class in Atom.
When I come to the Julia community I scratch my head and wonder why Atom is still being used. I suspect, in part, the reason is historical. At the time a choice, there was probably less distinction between Atom and Visual Studio Code. Yes, there is a VSCode extension for Julia, and it is good, and getting better, as is Juno. And, there doesn’t need to be just one IDE.
Would there be some benefits to evaluate investing in VSCode instead of Atom? Are there further reasons to continue to maintain Juno beyond momentum?
