Development Environment

I've read the threads about what editors people prefer and besides Notepad ++, I'm trying out Visual Studio Code and eventually take a look at Sublime.

I know a lot of authors use GitHub, do you guys use the desktop client? What about versioning, what tools do you use for that? I'm trying to set up a working environment for writing addons whether for personal use or for publishing here.

Under SublimeText I use (and contribute to) a plugin to integrate Git, then use Git tags for versioning (scheme differs based on project, SemVer is a good idea).
For publishing I use CurseForge's packager and my proxy, although something like BigWigs's packager running under TravisCI works well too (we use that for oUF).

Afaik, VSCode has built-in Git/GitHub support.

I'm glad I decided to start using these forums again. I tend to never use CurseForge (not for any particular reason), but maybe I should. I mainly put it off because of the tedious process of uploading files to 2 places (and also the necessity of duplicate text content on webpages). Thanks for this!
