Code Diff. between Sencha Architect and IntelliJ with Plugin
I know all of the many advantage that each editor has. However my question is,
What is the difference of the code that SA generates vs. the code that using an editor with the plugin will generate? Is one "tighter"? less "fluff" or, when I drag a grid (in SA) to the Views, add some columns, add some event handlers, etc. etc. will it look the same as if I "hand crafted" it in my fav. editor?

Guess it depends on what you type into the other Editor ...
I expect handmade code to be more compact than the auto-generated code.
SA obviously always creates viewModel and viewController, what you could skip if not needed / handled another way. Also, you probably won't need to wrap anything the way 'processConfig' does.

I played with SA a long time ago back then it was missing a lot of functionality.
I used it at Senchacon 2015 and it has clearly come a long way.
IMHO it comes down to the app you are building and the team skills building it.
Even with a team that has web app experience developing a vanilla Sencha app Id say use SA.
Any good JS IDE with CMD for build would suffice.
We use CMD for build and the Webstorm IDE for building extensions and the new plugin is great..
The downside of not using SA is the lack of WYSIWYG development and controlled/directed development.
