About Sublime Text

Sublime Text is a Windows, Mac, and Linux-based application development solution that helps organizations manage text editing processes for codes, markups, and prose. It allows team members to manage syntax definitions and highlighting using built-in features, such as multi-line constructs, laze embeds, and non-deterministic grammars.

Key features of Sublime Text include code auto-completion, debugging, multi-monitor editing, code folding, code refactoring, customizable templates, and more. With the command palette tool, staff members can handle sorting, syntax changing, and indentation updates. It is available on a perpetual license and support is extended via documentation, community forum, FAQs, and other online measures.

Write Between the Lines

Sublime is quite simply the best Text Editor that I've used. It's followed me from MacOS to Ubuntu, and with all the language choices that have come along the way... You can even very quickly turn it into a JavaScript IDE competitor with just a handful of plugins

Pros

Ignore reading between the line; Sublime's ability to contextually understand which language you are coding in saves you the stress, instead offering you the power to simply write! From the syntax highlighting you'd expect from other major IDEs such as Eclipse, or Visual Studio, alongside their ubiquitous autocomplete, you'll be pleasantly surprised with Sublme (the name of the app is sooo apt!). But here's the sweetest part; Sublime is the developer's best friend.... It's plugin friendly, and plugin rich (heck there are even tutorials about how to write your own Sublime plugin). Everything from turning it into a JavaScript powerhouse, to GIT integration, adding language parsers, even adding 'epic sounds' wen you write 'epic code' (https://github.com/Atbox/CodeChampion) With the fact that you can even integrate compilers with Sublime, it's the world's loveliest text editor (which may as well be an IDE).

Cons

If you want and IDE out of the box, go with VSCode or the likes, but in all fairness, I struggle to find anything that I cannot throw at Sublime Text with any real trouble to integrate... It's the gift that keeps giving.

Reasons for Choosing Sublime Text

While Atom may well catch up, Sublime's endless list of plugins make it a hard candidate to beat.

Reasons for Switching to Sublime Text

While Notepad++ was definitely a vast improvement over the standard Windows Notepad, we all grow up.... My first experience in the 90's was writing simple HTML in Notepad, and using Windows, the natural step was from there to Notepad++. The thing is though that once you've delved into the professional coding realm, worked with companies using .Net (and obviously Visual Studio), then continuing into non-compiled scripting languages, then you simply cannot regress back to Notepad ++... You need the big boys toys, the one that'll get the job done quickly, and let you even commit it through GIT in the process.

Una gran alternativapara novatos para codificar

Generalmente lo uso para editar código especialmente líneas en en php y css, es mu últil por la codificación de color y su estupendo interfaz que de una forma sencilla permite encontrar facilmente las etiquetas que etán ordenadas por colores

Pros

La facilidad de uso y la implmentación, es realmente muy intuitivo y sobre todo muy claro al importar código de diferentes lebguajes

Cons

Posiblmente lo que menos me encanta delprograma es que debería contar con una librería un poco más automatizada cuendo se empieza a escribir como otros software lo hace para que permita ir codificando con más ayudas.

Reasons for Choosing Sublime Text

Al ser un usuario de Mac, no existen tantas alternativas como en Windows u tro sistema operativo, asi que me pareció el más sencillo y óptimo en cuento a calidad - precio.

Reasons for Switching to Sublime Text

Por su costo, lo ligero en cuanto a peso y muy espscífico para mis necesidades

Good choice but not the best

Sublime was my fast text editor for many years. When I needed to edit a code file without the need of IDE features or when I needed to do it on a computer with low resources, sublime text came to the rescue.

Pros

I used Sublime Text for years, it is a tool that, unlike the ones that existed at that time, worked very fast. Today is still one of the lightest and most powerful tools that exists in the market and that would be the most interesting feature it has. Thanks to Sublime Text I met Emmet, the writing engine where you can do things like write in several sections of the same document at the same time, upload or download portions of code within the document as if it were a block. A powerful tool that you can customize, from your style of colors, thanks to Sublime Text I also knew Monokai, the color scheme that nowadays, years later I still use.

Cons

There are a couple of things that I do not like about Sublime Text and one of them is the reason why I ended up using another application. The first one is the pop-up message to remind you that you are using the free version and if you wanted to buy it. It is the most annoying thing that exists and appears every time you save a document a few times and to develop applications is annoying since you save the document about 30 times per hour minimum. The second thing that I do not like has to do with the evolution of the application. When I used Sublime Text there was no other similar one. But today there are many others that have the same characteristics of Sublime plus other features that I use a lot and that's why I ended up migrating to another application.

The best tool for experimenting and working with large files

Sublime Text is the best when all you want to do is write a simple, standalone script. Also useful for dev-ops (editing various config files) and browsing through huge log files or data sets. Used with software such as Cyberduck, allows you to effortlessly edit and look through the files on a remote server.

Pros

Lightweight Able to handle huge files that crash any other GUI text editors Great for experimenting, learning, and small projects

Cons

Not a full-featured IDE Not enough of a community and useful plugins

Reasons for Switching to Sublime Text

Notepad++ has little in terms of customizability. Even less IDE-like features. Doesn't handle large files as well as Sublime Text.

Most effecient text editor for Programmers and web developers - Sublime Text

Sublime Text Rocks overall. While comparing with competitors, like VS Code or Atom editor, Sublime text wins in its speed. VS Code lags while start. Sublime text has no lagging issue.

Pros

Sublime Text has many shortcuts for easy programming. You can select multiple lines and edit them together. This helps a lot. It shows all references to functions and variables and provides easy navigation.

Cons

I'm facing difficulty while deselecting a single line from multiple selections. I often need to deselect all the tens of line I selected for editing, to remove one selection. There is some complex procedure I found in their forum, but it didn't work easily. Further, there are no ways to integrate any compiler etc.

Reasons for Switching to Sublime Text

Notepad++ is not available for Linux (Ubuntu). Further, the interface is not as good and efficient as Sublime Text.
