I really need to spend some time finding a better Arduino dev platform. The Arduino "IDE" is a terrible editing environment, and PlatformIO uses specific project layouts that make sharing harder (but works in Sublime and VSCode and even vim with a little effort)

I want something like a vim plugin environment that handles compile and upload, and supports .ino as well as sets of .cpp files (like PlatformIO does).

TFW the 'report a bug' link on a website also doesn't work...

If your website still refuses to work after 3 guesses in NoScript, then I'm probably not going to spend any money there...
