I've been using Visual Studio Code for almost a year now and I think it's probably the best code editor out there for developing Ionic 2 and Angular 2 apps.
I know it's hard to break up with your current favorite editor, but I do think you are missing out on some great features that will help you develop your apps faster.
Open-Source, Cross-Platform, and Free
Let's get this out of the way first, VS Code is open-source and completely free, doesn't cost a thing. I use VS Code mostly on OS X and sometimes on Windows and it's great to be able to use it on both and it also works on Linux.
VS Code is built with TypeScript and the developers are eating their own dog-food by using VS Code to develop new features for VS Code.
