Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

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

Sublime Text allows for all sorts of customization to help users change almost everything in the editor: Key Bindings, Menus, Snippets, Macros, Completions, and many more. Essentially, just about everything in Sublime Text is customizable with simple JSON files. This system gives the user flexibility as settings can be specified on a per-file type and per-project basis.

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.
