Have you considered Visual Studio Code / PlatformIO?

I admit that I have not been involved with mbed development for more than a year and that I did not take last year survey.

Recently I was involved in a project based on ESP32 and I coincidentally came across Visual Studio Code / PlatformIO. I was impressed with its capabilities , especially searching available supporting libraries and keeping them up to date with ease.

So my question is have you considered Visual Studio Code / PlatformIO instead of Eclipse? Maybe it's already too late?

Question relating to:

And not only VSCode. PlatformIO supports 11 IDEs. Atom, Visual Studio, CLion, Eclipse and more... I don't know why you'd want to develop and recruit beta-testers for a Eclipse+GDB+openOCD thing when there are already better Eco-systems out there, like PIO.

PlatformIO requires payment if you want to do debugging.
