  • ONE OF MY FAVORITE TEXT EDITORS FOR EXTENSIVE PROGRAMMING!

    What do you like best?

    - The Syntax Highlighting is one of my most favorite features.

    - The ability to change the overall color theme, this also changes the highlighting for code, to meet your desired environment.

    - Highly customizable, and a very capable text editor that is both complex and simple at the same time.

    - You can download a trial version of Sublime before you make the jump to the full version.

    - Built in compiler and the ability to run makes this editor one of the best.

    - Community is very helpful and provide solutions just in case something causes an error, and if you need to reach out to the creator's you can!

    What do you dislike?

    - Full version does cost a little more than average text editors, $70 USD.

    - There are quite a bit of features that might turn off the average user, but you can completely work without having to dig into optional features.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Even though it does cost $70 USD, give the free version a shot. It will give you the full experience to get a taste and if it appeals, it is investment well spent.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    We are trying to find the best editor for our team, and so far, for all the code we execute, this is our go to. Although this is more extravagant than needed, we like the support and constant relief that it is a quality product.

    Surprisingly great UX from a text editor

    What do you like best?

    The UI is clean and simple, which is exactly what I like in a text editor. Syntax highlighting is clear but not out of control, code completion is helpful, and the right sidebar is great for scrolling through your code. My favorite feature is distraction-free mode, which full-screens the program, removes the sidebar, centers the text and lets you focus completely on development.

    What do you dislike?

    I honestly can't identify a single disadvantage of Sublime Text. I could see some people being bothered by the lack of bells and whistles, but for me, it's the perfect text editor. I hope they come out with an iOS version soon.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    If you're looking for a lean, minimalist text editor, this is it. I still use Oxygen for XML editing due to its validation features and support for XSLT, but for almost everything else, I strongly recommend Sublime Text.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    Coding is a fairly regular part of my job, and I've found Sublime to be the best tool for it. It's also quite good for editing other people's code.

  • Sublime Text has a good response time and minimal impact on system performance, using a very low amount of CPU and RAM. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the app did not hang or crash. Thanks to its modern interface and myriad of advanced options, Sublime Text should please experienced users who are looking for an all-around text editor.

  • Sublime Text is in my opinion the best text/code editor in the market which is available for Windows, OS X and Linux. So if you’re looking for a powerful solution Sublime Text is for you.
