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.

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.

Simple, Yet Powerful

I started using Sublime Text in 2010 at design school, and it opened a whole new world of coding for me. There may be cheaper or more powerful text editors out there, but nothing feels better to me than Sublime Text.

Pros

Don't let the simple interface throw you off: Sublime Text can do just about anything, as long as you're willing to spend some time configuring it. The free version is plenty powerful for most front and backend development, and the purchase price is acceptable if you need more features.

Cons

The initial setup of "packages" to get Sublime Text started can be a little daunting, even to simply start editing HTML or CSS. But there is a world of packages that you can connect to and install instantly, for free. You just need to understand how this works.

Alternatives Considered

Reasons for Choosing Sublime Text

Reasons for Switching to Sublime Text

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.

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.
