    Visual Studio Code

    nice modern UI, thriving extension ecosystem; origin of the Language Server Protocol

    VIM

    A classic and insanely powerful. Has quite a steep learning curve, but the modal editing paradigm is really worth learning. Only real drawback: once you grok it, you want VIM-style editing everywhere. highly customizable, large plugin ecosystem

    Emacs

    Also a classic; also super powerful.

    Sublime Text

    sleek UI, probably the fastest of all text editors, highly customizable

    atom.io

    nice UI, customizable, large plugin ecosystem; sometimes a bit sluggish

    Notepad++

    A classic in the Windows world. Quite OK, but not as powerful as the other editors in this list.
