wrong question here - the RMs have absolutely NOTHING to do with Java.

If you're talking about javascript, you need to remember that java is to javascript as ham is to hamster - they share the first few letters but have abslutely nothing in common.

as for javascript, there are some, Brackets (free), sublime (paid), atom (not sure) or notepad++ (free)
but the question is more, what software do you feel most comfortable with?

I use VSCode. It's FOSS, reasonably lightweight and probably the smartest in terms of intellisense too. Although the best? All depends on your personal preference. I used to use Sublime text 2, it's a free version of Sublime text. But ST2 is quite heavy on cpu compared to VSCode, so could not run it on my weak-o laptop. Then there is Atom, which I don't like due to its sheer size, Code::Blocks, Brackets, Notepad++ (the most lightweight of them)...

I personally use Visual Studio. It's awesome. I haven't used anything else though to be honest but you can't go wrong with it.

I like VSCode, Visual Studio is enormous, and even if you specify a different drive to install on, a lot of components will wind up installing to C no matter what. My little SSD just doesn't have the room for it to sit comfortably once I start installing components.

Sublime Text is nice, but like @Poryg said, it's a bit resource heavy.
I downloaded Atom back in the day but quickly uninstalled, it has capabilities beyond anything I really care for when writing just JavaScript for RMMV.

IMHO, its really more of just using whichever editor you're more comfortable with...

Previously, I use mostly Visual Studio for my other coding stuff but for JS Im using Atom right now.

PS: This is the first time I heard of VS Code, it seems like worth a try

I've been using VSCode for at least 2 years now and will never look back. I've tried many other editors but nothing quite fulfills my needs like VSCode but it's a personal thing and you may enjoy other editors like Sublime or even Brackets more.

I use a mix of notepad++ and VSCode, both of which are completely free. VSCode tends to be better with autocomplete and project management, while notepad++ I find to be better for quick edits. I tried Atom a few years ago, but at the time it was horrible with larger files. Hopefully that's changed though.

@Yougotsomechocolate Use Visual Studio Code. It has Snippets, and Intellisense for fast and precise coding, and it annotates very well. And yes, I got some chocolate. Like...the most chocolatest guy in the world

@standardplayer I just downloaded Atom, seems splendid, let's see if its technical could charm me like its aesthetic did :D
