I've had a single missing comma cost me over an hour.
Same here. It took forever to actually realize it even wanted a comma. That was in my n00b days working with Backbone. Sort of trial by fire, was asked to implement a bunch of pages on existing project, never used Backbone before.
I'm using Sublime. I suppose I could try VS Code, but then I have to figure out how to set it up to FTP saves over to the Ubuntu VM running the app. (Editing in Ubuntu sucks, one of many reasons being that the numeric keypad cursor keys don't work, and using the "T" is not something I ever got used to and cramps my fingers.)
If that didn't make your half program red, you use the wrong IDE. In fact a simple editor that highlight keywords would detect that (Why is the "funtion" not highlighted?). When people used notepad (not notepad++) for programming they had all these problems with typos and semicolons. Those were difficult ancient times...
