Is there a code editor for Mac that has a built-in terminal?

There are many code editors for Mac, but there is one that I know of that has a built-in terminal.

Hello, l use Visual Studio Code. Which has a integrated terminal. It also has many other helpful extensions to make writing and debugging code easier. Hope this info helps! Happy coding!

My two favorite text editors Atom and Sublime Text both allow you to easily install packages that allow you to have a built-in command line. I really like Atom because it supports both a built-in Git interface, a built-in GitHub interface, and built-in terminal! (The terminal, as I mentioned, you must download). Atom also makes it easy to download other packages that can greatly enhance your coding experience, specifically designed for whichever language you enjoy!
