I have been using Sublime Text for 5 years. I use it for coding purposes. Sublime Text is an excellent tool for professional coders. The best thing about Sublime Text is that it is open source and it has a great feature of packages. This feature saves me a lot of time and I don't have to write as much code.
  • Lightweight application.
  • Multi package support
  • Long projects handling
  • Multi files viewing in single window
  • Cannot close all tabs in single shot
  • User interface can be improved
  • The user's profile is missing.
Sublime Text is a very lightweight application that runs smoothly on every system. It is very easy to code in all PHP frameworks and core PHP using it, so I recommend it. I have worked on 10 projects in Sublime Text so far, so now I find it very easy to use.

We use sublime text as a Non-IDE solution for development, is a powerful text editor worth the money. if you prefer the simplicity of text editors, Sublime Text must be on the top in the list. It's a very very fast text editor without much heavy components or toolbars. Its loading time is less than 1 second. Its Auto-completion feature makes its best in its class, it helps us to write fast and simple scripts for automation
  • Fast
  • Light Weight
  • Easy to use
  • Themes and Plugin support
  • Customization is little bit difficult.
  • Loading big files on Windows is slow
  • Annoying whitespace management

Sublime Text, while being lighter-weight than an IDE, still supports many IDE features.

  • Text from the current file is used to provide autocomplete.
  • Project Support (folder browsing, scoped history, build-system declarations).
  • Refactoring support is emulated through multi-select, project-wide find and replace, and regular expression search.
  • Syntax-aware selection and GoTo for quickly jumping to locations in the project.
  • Snippets and Macros.
  • A Python console for everything else.

I use it for writing, editing and fixing HTML code for our email templates. I also use it for CSS code for our emails. We have a connection with our Github repository, so I also use it to code on our branches. I also use it as a simple notepad tool, to make notes.
  • Connection with Github
  • Syntax with colors for easier coding
  • N/A
I've used a lot of different notepad solutions to write code, but Sublime Text has always been the best. Especially the syntax with coloring for different code languages is amazing. I never want to switch again.
In the past, I used different notepad solutions to do mass find and and replace (for multiple open files) but that also works good with Sublime Text.

Sublime Text has a simple and integrated interface. I personally use Sublime Text for taking quick meeting notes. Sublime Text offers simultaneous editing of multiple lines and code blocks at the same time, which increases efficiency and also reduces the time taken to do tasks repeatedly. The free version offers almost all the features of the paid version.
  • Clean interface
  • Open source and free
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Find and replace
  • Plugins
  • Frequent pop ups to purchase paid version
  • Slowness
  • Need support for AI
Sublime Text is well suited for note-taking. Syntax highlighting helps developers quickly view and understand the code. When considering other editors which are offered free, Sublime Text has to frequently improve and upgrade against its competitors. Support for an integrated terminal in Sublime Text would be a nice-to-have feature.

Easy on the Eyes

Sublime Text is my go-to for any extensive coding or for when I need to write new code. The CMS I'm using has only small boxes for inputting code and often results in a lot of scrolling with little option to extend the size of the box. Sublime Text helps me to open up the code and see it clearly and as more of a complete whole. It's also helpful because it will automatically adjust the colors to whichever code format. This makes it easier to find and recognize issues, and just to read. (My CMS displays any code as all one color).
  • User-Friendly and Intuitive – it's a pretty simple and straight forward software that doesn't take much to learn how to use.
  • Aesthetically Pleasing - the design of the program, especially the colors used when a code type is selected, is pleasing to the eye.
  • Makes code more readable – being able to take the whole of a chunk of code and open it up in this software, with the colors indicating types of elements within the code, makes it much easier to read the code, locate errors, and do complex work with it.
  • Auto-recognize code type – it would be nice to have it recognize what type of code without manually selecting it every time or even just a default setting for your most commonly used code type.
  • Being able to run/test the code without using another software would be very helpful
  • Invalid code detector – for code like CSS, something that flags anything that isn't a valid standard code type.
My CMS has a small window in which I can edit custom HTML/CSS. It can be expanded some, but not as much as I would like. It also displays all code as dark text on a white background. On a page where I am doing extensive custom coding, it is helpful to see it in a larger window and in a color-coded display so that I don't have to strain my eyes as hard. Especially when I'm trying to scan for specific elements and target issues and so that I don't have to scroll endlessly in a tiny window.

I use Sublime Text as my primary text editor for viewing source files and navigating code. It is a flexible editor that works with any programming language and is very customizable.
  • Display code in syntax specific color schemes that are customizable.
  • Allow you to do exhaustive searches on entire code directories.
  • Search code in user customizable directories.
  • It is free software but they have an annoying pop up to get you to buy it.
It is well suited for navigating and editing code and searching through source code directories. It can be integrated with compilers to build software systems. About the only thing it does not (nor should) display other file types.

Sublime Text is one of the largest Text Editors with IDE and is one of the underrated Text Editors as a developer I have used so many editors but so far Sublime is one of the best and we can write code in any language and support all languages ​​very well. it is open source and anyone can use this Editor. The problem like as Software developers need to work on different languages/technologies and for those all languages/technologies we can write code in this only.
  • Language Support very good like it supports most of the languages.
  • Autocompletion of Tag and Syntax.
  • Tag and Syntax highlighting.
  • Supports Plugins and integrations.
  • I think their pricing is bit high so they need to look in to this.
  • Cross-platform support need to be improved.
Well suited experience is that can work on one IDE for my different projects, and Syntax and Tag highlighting helps in writing well-structured code. Less appropriate scenarios, I personally did not dislike anything as such but they can improve their User Interface and can make it a more interactive user experience and they can promote their product more than everyone gets to know about this amazing Editor.

This is being used by nearly all the people in my organization. It is mainly so since it has features for nearly all programming languages and supports plugins for the same. It is addressing the problem of writing efficient code fast by helping us with autocomplete, simultaneous output, color-coded codes, and other features.
  • It is very light and boots up instantaneously.
  • It has tons of plugins that will help you to customize sublime entirely according to your needs and thereby is not bloated
  • Package control is really easy to work with and most plugins can be installed in 2 just clicks.
  • Free version has nearly all the features of the paid version.
  • Its User Interface is simple and makes it easy to located many features.
  • It gives you a ton of control over your ide setting through User-settings where you can customize almost everything.
  • The free version keeps bugging to buy and gets irritating(on the contrary buying it is worth it in my opinion)
  • Git integration is clumsy and sometimes glitchy and has room for improvement.
It is suitable for all situations. However, I would recommend Visual Studio for c++ if you don't mind a bloated IDE. It is, however, best suited for javascript since it even allows you to get node-based output in the terminal, which makes work a lot faster.

Sublime is the ideal text editor I’ve found for my C++ programming language, and it works very well. C++ code editing has all the features we would expect. Unlike many other IDEs, Sublime does not memory-intensive and starts up. I like the idea of being able to see a vertical miniature. I can find code sections more thoroughly and hide code groups, which helps me avoid tinkering with unnecessary parts. There is nothing more appealing about this software than its excellent coding environment.
  • Using colorful coding makes it simple to review or write code and accurate code completion.
  • In Sublime Text, there are a lot of shortcuts. It's easy to manipulate text, and we can text package controls to save a lot of time.
  • Fast and efficient, Sublime Text is ideal for working with large datasets. In turn, it enhances the enjoyment we derive from coding.
  • Plugins are easier to use and less complicated but transferring your license to a new computer isn't as simple as it sounds.
  • Sublime has an automatic file comparison feature, but it's challenging to use and should be improved.
  • Adding the ability to mark or highlight the text with different colors would be an excellent application.
In comparison to other text editors, Sublime is a lot more capable. Sublime has useful features like multiple line editing, syntax highlighting, auto-completion, and file searching. In separate windows, you can work on several projects simultaneously. Flexibility and multitasking are enabled. Sublime Text is a helpful tool for anyone who works in programming or IT, according to my experience. Even if you work for a large or small company, it doesn't matter. Programming can be fun if you know what you're doing.

Sublime text is my main code editor. It's light, fast and reliable. As well, its plugin market has a lot of modules that may improve its usage without [sacrificing] too much performance. Since version 4.x it has improved significantly allowing code styling for several programming languages natively. Also, its dark theme is smooth so the user's eyes adapt quickly and do not suffer when using it
  • it is fast and light
  • it is reliable, it never crashes
  • its autocomplete feature for languages such as Python or PHP is one of the best in the market
  • detecting automatically JSX syntax may fail, forcing the user to set it manually
  • its git integration has improved, but it may provide more help to the user; [especially] when solving conflicts
If you are a junior software developer that does not know what code editor to use or a senior one that is looking for a change, sublime is the best one in the market. I have been using it for more than 6 years and has never disappointed me. I have tried others like VSCode but I always return to Sublime.

We use Sublime Text only within our department (IT). It helps us write the configuration coding for our network and IT devices. It's been very helpful to our department, the app provides a lot of useful features like writing on multiple lines at the same time and comparing the files with multiple layout views, either vertically or horizontally, its definitely great at assisting the app for our daily work.
In fact, I'm not using sublime text to it extent, there are many features and plug-ins which I didn't experience yet, my work on sublime focus on writing and modifying scripts which are later compiled to codes for networking devices at our organization. Before I use sublime I was writing these codes on note or word files, but after using sublime text I found it much easier and faster to write these codes with sublime.
  • Identifying the different vendor coding within the text.
  • Easy to use and provides many preferences which suits most users's needs.
  • Manipulating text is easy and efficient.
  • The ability to add package controls.
  • You can freely experiance and evaluate the app.
  • You have the option of saving your text with coding such as UTF-8, UTF-16, etc
  • In addition to the ability to manually comparing the text file, Sublime has the feature of automatically comparing the files but it's hard to use and needs to be improved because it's a useful feature.
  • Although Sublime Text has the features of identifying the many vendor's coding, many other vendors' coding can not be identified like Cisco-IOS coding, which would be very useful for writing codes for Cisco devices.
  • Adding the ability to mark or highlight the text with different colors would be nice.
From my experience, I think Sublime Text would be very useful for any programmer or IT staff whose work involves writing text coding. I guess it would also be useful for accounting and data analyzing work, as it has many features and add-ons which suit such work needs. I think less useful for working with formal letters, or official documents for example.

Sublime Text is used only by some departments in our organization. In our department, we do data scraping using Python. In order to do this, you must know a little bit of HTML and CSS. We use Sublime Text as a text editor to write Python, HTML, and CSS codes as it is very fast, easy to use, and has very good code completion.
  • With colorful coding it is extremely easy to review codes or write your own code
  • As I mentioned earlier code completion is really accurate
  • Sublime Text has many shortcuts, which saves you a lot of time
  • Sublime Text is very fast software and does not lag. This makes your coding experience much more enjoyable
  • Sublime Text is perfect for working with large datasets
  • Sublime Text gives you opportunity to customize it and so you can choose the particular theme that fits you the best and much more.
  • It is free to use
  • Free version is constantly "begging" you to buy a license
I will recommend Sublime Text to anyone. In my opinion, Sublime Text is well suited for everybody in any scenario. First of all, it does not matter if you are working in a big company or a small company as it has a free version, so everyone has access to it. Also it is a very fast software, which has everything necessary for you to have an enjoyable coding experience.

Our research department uses Sublime Text as our primary text editor for anything code-related, primarily web apps we write in Python, and any associated work (HTML, CSS, javascript, etc). Occasionally we use Sublime Text to manually parse through JSON data when the files aren't too large and it's easier to scan it by eye than running it through a script. Sublime Text allows us to very easily visualize different code components, identify errors, and keep our code base clean.
  • Sublime Text does an incredible job with appropriate color coding and syntax definitions; makes code extremely readable
  • Tab selection is very well done; easy to see which files have been changed and to compare across multiple files
  • Auto-complete is surprisingly effective and accurate
  • Support for Apple M1 processors already
  • Porting your license to a new machine isn't easy
  • Syntax awareness can get a bit buggy in particular context situations (i.e. django variables inside javascript)
  • Can be a bit of a pain to navigate the myriad settings
Sublime Text is literally the perfect text editor for coding on a Mac. It's lightweight, intuitive, easy to use, and easy to customize. The free trial "period" is exceptionally generous, and surprisingly noninvasive. Options like seeing which files have changed, and which files have unsaved changes, have saved me countless hours of pulling my hair out over bugs. New versions also have some amazing git integrations and other features that I haven't used but I'm sure are very handy too!

Several teams in my department use Sublime Text as a code editor in addition to using Visual Studio or Visual Code. Sublime Text has the benefit of being lightweight and flexible, so if you want to use it as just a text editor, you can. If you want to use it for working with JavaScript, you can add a plugin or two, and you're good to go.
  • It's lightweight so it isn't clunky or slow.
  • It's flexible; you can add or remove plugins to use it how it best suits you.
  • You can integrate compilers with it.
  • You have to add plugins to make it a functional IDE (it isn't an IDE out of the box).
  • You do need to research to find the right plugin(s) for your use case(s).
It's very fast, and out of the box, it's minimalistic and easy to use. It's great for a text editor, and it's great for configuring your own IDE, but it does take some research to find the right plugins and modifications for your needs. It also works on Mac OS or Windows, which is nice.

Sublime Text is my workhorse text editor. In a world with a myriad of text editors, it really stands out. Editing text can often be a tedious affair filled with lots of repetitive tasks. Sublime Text does an excellent job of streamlining navigation and reducing the amount of time needed to handle these tasks. It removes the helps mitigate the mindless tasks and helps you focus on the parts that require thought.
  • The biggest advantage over many other editors is the ability to open large files. Some editors just can't open a CSV with millions of lines but Sublime Text does it like a champ.
  • Multiple selections let you change or create many instances of the same variable or value with ease.
  • The Goto Anything simplifies navigation and lets you control, open, or move within files without ever having to take your hands off the keyboard.
  • Likewise, the command palette allows you to access any of the application's functionality right from the keyboard.
  • It is highly customizable with a rich ecosystem of third party plugins and the ability to create your own.
  • In a world of free and open text editors, Sublime Text does ask for donations. You can use the product freely with only a very infrequent popup asking for donations. You can use it however long you like without paying, but it is well worth it to donate to.
  • People not used to the functionality may need a bit of time to get up to speed using the documentation.
  • An integrated terminal would be nice, but that is just a quibble. It's hard to find many cons with Sublime Text.
Anybody who needs a text editor to handle the structured files in software development and its associated fields needs to have Sublime Text (and probably already does). This isn't a word processor though, and can't do fancy fonts, document structure, and styling of such a program. It was created to wrangle plain text and it does it better than anything else.

Sublime Text was used by certain engineers in the company. There were essentially 2 camps of coders, those that used Sublime and those that used VSCode. It solved the business problem of having to pay for an IDE as it is open source. For myself, it addressed the issue of needing a single IDE for coding across several languages for certain projects.
  • Customizability
  • Cross-language compatibility
  • Speed
  • Customizability has learning curve
  • More seamless library installation
  • Get rid of ads
Sublime Text is well suited for multi-language projects that require rapid prototyping. For example, creation of a react application with a python backend can be stubbed out rather quickly. It is less suited for projects that are dedicated to a particular stack such as a C# enterprise-level application, of which Visual Studio would be more appropriate.

Sublime Text was used by the web dev department of my company for probably about three years. We used it for local development of HTML, CSS, and PHP for Wordpress and for HubSpot sites. We started developing using SASS when we got into using Sublime Text.
  • Code hinting
  • Plugins
  • Organization
  • Compiling--need another program for compiling. That's really the only downside that I saw.
I think Sublime Text is a really good program. I think that it works really well for development and I really like the look of the program itself--more than Visual Studio Code, which is what my company switched to.

Sublime Text is being used in our middle school technology classes where they are writing code. It is used for writing code in web design (HTML, CSS, and javascript) and python. It is an easy text editor to use and does not take very long at all to learn. There isn't much to it which is nice.
  • Can easily write code.
  • Simple to use.
  • Very powerful even though it is quite simple.
  • Not as user friendly when working on a Mac.
When writing code or using it for any other text editing, it highlights different text in different colors which makes it nice when you want to see separation in the text. Because of this, it is easy to use and has several different uses. At the bottom of the editor, it also shows the language being used which is nice if you have several files written in different languages.

I cannot speak for the whole organization but I use it as my second choice of text editor for software development work. It's a lightweight, free text editor which allows me to quickly open any code-related file extensions such as .py .json .js .java, etc. So this is basically the business problem solved by this product.
  • Quick to open and use.
  • Light on memory.
  • Free to use.
  • Lot of plugins.
  • Can open any coding related file extension.
  • Better integration of command line tools
  • Better user interface
  • Intellisense is missing
For a developer, it can be really useful for writing code, especially if you have a machine that has less memory. If I'm not wrong, Sublime is written in c++ which makes it very fast on any platform, especially compared to modern text editors like Visual Studio Code or Atom, which rely on web technologies. Also, it can open any text-based file format so one can use it to quickly view files.

Sublime Text is an outstanding, lightweight text editor. While a portion of our organization uses a more complex IDE, we all enjoy using Sublime for its speed, efficient design, and simplicity. Marketing roles inside our company that do not normally write code, use Sublime Text to be able to modify HTML files, and we don't have to worry about explaining a complex IDE to them.
  • Sublime Text is powerful where you need it to be, but simple and out of your way at the same time.
  • Great keyboard shortcuts and multi-selection options
  • Great package manager installation process for easily extending functionality
  • Not exactly a con, but some organizations like ours may have a reason for continuing to use a more complex IDE along with a tool like Sublime for certain tasks. Though I don't think anyone on our team would want Sublime to turn into a bloated IDE.
  • Sublime Text has created a separate product called Sublime Merge that acts as a version control GUI. Personally I don't use this, but I would want to if it was built-into Sublime Text as a single app. It isn't the extra cost that is the issue, rather that I would personally prefer Sublime Merge to optionally be able to be run inside a separate pane in the current sublime window. We use a JetBrains IDE that provides a version control tool built into the same app as the code editor. This is a minor issue, and I respect that some customers prefer the separate apps.
Sublime Text is the best text editing tool, especially for working on web-based software products. If your organization is working with iOS apps, or native applications, then Sublime Text might not be the tool you need, but this is likely obvious, as Sublime Text is not designed for this kind of use.

As far as I can tell, Sublime Text is mainly used by the R&D department, and it's not a company policy - The R&D employees use it only if they wish to.
The main problem it helps to solve is analyzing large amount of texts like logs (searching inside, finding similarities or irregularities) or updating big text files (very useful and flexible "find & replace" capabilities).
  • Analyzing large amount of texts like logs is easy due to good searching capabilities
  • Updating big text files is quite easy due to very useful and flexible "find & replace" capabilities
  • The software is super lightweight and is not being "felt" at all in terms of performance
  • When saving files (at least on mac), the files' extensions are missing unless you specifically type them
Sublime [Text] is well suited:
  • when you need to take notes fast and with no text formatting
  • when you need to write some scripts or pseudo-code with no need of a "heavy compiler"
  • when you need to research a large amount of text (search for repetitions or irregularities)
  • when you need to update a big text file (find & replace, or just use a software that doesn't "hang")

Sublime Text is used by me and other developers at my organization on iOS, Windows and Linux. It really helps us to open a file with its syntax highlighted and makes it so much more easier to edit text and save changes.
  • Editing Text
  • Supports many programming languages
  • Optimized for speed
  • Less plugins
  • Always shows a pop-up requesting to purchase a version
  • Keeps changing frequently
Sublime Text does great at highlighting different types of texts. It supports multiple programming languages and one can always choose a programming language before editing the text so Sublime Text shows the syntax in that language.

  • There are many themes available to chose from which makes it an ideal code editor.
  • Frequent updates makes it free from [...] bugs and [...] [the] latest patches improves [its] performance.
  • It is [a] perfect IDE in it's own way. It should contains more extensions and plugins to make it easier for building projects.
This is very easy to use. Even [novices] and [professionals] [...] can use this Editor to build complex projects. Since it is free to use, [...] I would like to recommend this editor to all the developers who love to code on simple, but elegant Code Editor.

Our organisation mainly deals with Web Development Apps so we need an editor that can out point errors and give suggestions about the syntax in different languages even on the same page. It's common to have Java Scripts and PHP along with HTML, CSS on the same page. The best feature about this tool is it makes suggestions to the user about the common syntax on the language that you are working, without any external setting. Other great thing about this tool is its tab view of different pages altogether that makes navigation too easy unlike other competitors. You also have Tree view of the files and folder you are working on the left column for quick works. Moreover it has this feature which almost no other tool has: a "zoomed-out" view of the page pinned to right top corner for pointing a particular portion of module on your thousands of lines of work.
  • Has a free version.
  • Text highlights are great for debugging.
  • Better find-replace feature than others.
  • Can easily work with multiple projects without confusion.
  • Accurate syntax suggestions.
  • Less and complicated plugins.
  • Formatting a large document file can be confusing.
  • Often prompts to purchase a new version.
  • No auto-saving a document.
  • Cannot highlight a particular portion of text.
Highly recommended for beginners as this tool can boost their developing much with its in-built tools that make learning fun and easy. Even professionals do not need to memorise certain syntax and with some shortcuts coding or developing environment can be made faster than usual.

It's used by personal preference by a subset of developers. It's a fast, lightweight text editor that I personally use for front-end development. I prefer it over other editors simply because I like the interface and its relative speed. Other developers also use it primarily for Javascript or CSS/HTML development.
  • Syntax highlighting for JavaScript is great.
  • Distraction free mode.
  • Not sure if I just am not using it right but JavaScript syntax error highlighting isn't obvious.
  • Doesn't remember word wrap as a setting.
Comparing it with other text editors for JS development, it's just faster and better looking. We've tried some other ones on Mac and PC but prefer this one.
