About Sublime Text

Sublime Text is an application development software that helps businesses manage code refactoring, debugging, multi-monitor editing, syntax highlighting, and more from within a unified platform. It allows staff members to utilize the auto-completion functionality to generate code suggestions and automatically provide links to definitions.

Sublime Text enables administrators to dark or light user interface (UI) and configures multi-tab select functionality to manage navigation between sidebars, Goto Anything, Goto Definition, and other tabs. The syntax highlighting engine allows users to manage non-deterministic grammars, laze embeds, syntax inheritance, and multi-line constructs. The JavaScript ecosystem supports the usage of syntax-based features and typescript, JSX, and TSX.

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.

A customizable IDE for everyday coding

I started using Sublime about 5 years ago. I saw it as an upgrade over notepad/notepad ++. I have enjoyed watching it grow and the features increase. In the last year or two new IDE's have come out. They have massive feature sets, and many are great tools. I have not been able to leave the comfort of Sublime 3. I have attempted to use some of these other massive programs. Only to find them to be a massive bottleneck on some of our older systems/small VM ware instances. I have found it nearly impossible to embrace an alternative as I would not be able to use that alternative in every environment that I work.

I am a huge fan of Sublime. I do acknowledge that many new IDE's are making this a highly competitive market. If you need a consistent editing experience. You can literally run Sublime off a thumb drive and carry it everywhere with you! Sublime is the most consistent editor I have used.

Pros

I like that is lightweight. It barely uses resources. It boots in a flash. It is great on multiple OS's. No matter if I am on OSX/Linux/Windows I can have my familiar editing experience with me.

It has extensive plugin options. You can customize the software in a flash using the built-in command-line style extension loader.

Cons

The system for installing extensions is great and easy, but it is not robust on features. You need to do your homework outside of sublime to figure out if it is the right extension for you. You also need to consult these outside websites to even get a good picture of what all extension options are out there.

Overall, i'm happy with the product. It's been solid for years.

Pros

I like that it's very streamlined and easy to use. It also handles very large files well.

Cons

There isn't a lot of "bling" with this software. There are a lot of missing packages that are available through another editor.

It is a really good text editing tool with support for advanced APIs, special functions and so many other features that help us write clean, readable and neat code taking full advantage of what it offers in our daily lives.

Pros

Smart auto writing feature of your function definitions that takes from the existing code when your number of code lines are huge with just one click. It surely is a friend for editing texts, programming using the color code options that makes it easier to program and debug saving time with a lot of shortcuts too. Even with huge lines of code, it does not slow down and offers a smooth experience. Also gives us the opportunity of taking advantage of external plugins.

Cons

It would be a great added functionality with an integrated code testing environment for each programming language to choose from. And the cost for this is quite high for just an IDE which could be a little cheaper.

A robust text editor I used for years

Reviewed on 06/05/2021

Pros

The UI is very polished, this is the first pretty text editor I used. It was my first encounter with a command palette, which greatly increases the productivity when coding. This editor was my daily driver for a good 5 years.

Cons

Fixes and features are not released that often. Since this is a proprietary tool, its development is limited to a small team working exclusively for Sublime Text. There is also no way to audit its security, which is very important if I'm connecting it to a private version control repository. In the end, not being open source is what drove me away from it.
