Although software is an intellectual discipline, every programmer who values himself uses a multitude of tools in his daily life. As if it were a craftsman, the programmers tried to choose the tools that best fit our hands. We spend many hours with them so we like that the tool is to our liking, that fits our workflow and does not force us to change it.
We adapt aesthetic aspects, like colors, fonts or position of the menus. But we also adapt the functional parts, such as keyboard shortcuts or install plugins that save us working more than the account. In the end we customize both the tools we use, which could be said to exist for each programmer.
When choosing a tool to program we usually choose between two options: IDE or text editor.
