So I recently came across , a cleaner version of built directly from source and minus the telemetry shit.

Tried it out and might be placebo but Codium seems snappier than Code.

Here’s the link in case you wanna switch too:

@arghyadeep codium is awesome. You can even build it from source yourself if you’re that specific brand of paranoid.

I’d say it is a little bit faster as well.

@wholesomedonut So it's not just a placebo for me. Good to know that. :)

@arghyadeep It's a little dissapointing that it doesn't have the setting sync or live share capability. Why do those need to rely on proprietary services? =/

@bhart Setting sync is understandable but for live share it might be Microsoft strategy to hold on to the consumers.

Anyways, I don't care for either of those so I''m good.

@arghyadeep VS Code isn't even FOSS unless you compile it yourself or use something like codium. It's under the same license as Microsoft Windows.

@arghyadeep VSCodium are awesome! But it runs Electron which I do not like that much. Electron makes it slow now and then. I've tried CudaText and use it mainly for editing files on my server these days. But I don't know. I want to switch from VSCodium to CudaText, but it's hard 😂

@edgren How do you access server files in CudaText?

Where is it installed?

@arghyadeep It's a plugin, so go to Plugins > Addons Manager > Install and search for FTP. Or you can go to Plugins > Addons Manager > Install from GitHub and enter the following URL:

@arghyadeep If you'll try CudaText out, be careful with Ctrl+Y! That shortcut are default to cutting the whole line or erase backwards. You need to re-set that shortcut to Undo in Help > Command palette.
