An ideal remote IDE?
No, looks like VScode recently got its remote development extensions (it was only in insiders build a couple of months ago) working just right.
I tried remote-ssh extension and it looks quite polished. No syncing your large data folders and loading all python dependencies locally for hours.
The problem? It took me an hour just to open ssh session under Windows properly (permissions and Linux folder path substitution is hell on Windows). When I opened it - it worked like a charm.
So for now (it is personal) - best tools are in my opinion:
- Notebooks - for exploration and testing;
- VScode for codebase;
- Atom - for local scripts;
