Why do we use Hardhat

When using Hardhat, We can use it to compile, deploy and test our smart contract. There are plugins for us to choose to install so we can increase the efficiency of development. Hardhat runs on our personal computer allowing us to choose to use the Text editor that we like to use in development. (If we use REMIX we have to stick to the Remix IDE) We can use Hardhat to cope with this problem by using Hardhat on Visual Studio Code so we can choose to install any extension that we like.
