Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

Our web department uses Sublime Text to write code for the website. It's a great program and is quick to load, so we can make changes fast. Our website is very robust and we receive many requests for special designs and features. Sublime Text helps us meet demands quickly and efficiently.
  • Sublime Text has a great side menu for organizing files. I can quickly see what other files are in my directory so I can keep my information hierarchy clean and efficient.
  • Sublime Text has great built-in tools like Multiple Selections. Multiple Selections allows me to select one variable and change every instance at once instead of searching every line of code.
  • Sublime Text has a fantastic syntax definition tool that automatically creates an index of every class. I can use keyboard shortcuts to work quickly and keep everything organized.
  • Sublime Text doesn't have a print feature. Printing code isn't something I do often, but there are times when that would be very helpful. As of now, I have to copy the code to a text editor and print from there.
  • Sublime Text has a million tools to speed up processes, but no simple way to learn how to use them. An interactive demo or training resource in addition to the documentation would be really nice.
  • Sublime Text changes frequently. Updates and new features are great, but the changelog doesn't always give an in-depth explanation of what was changed and how to use the new features.
  • Sublime Text has allowed us to write html and css more quickly so we are able to meet deadlines and take on more projects.
  • Features like multiple selections and the goto definition have made it easier for us to find issues in the code and make far-reaching changes on the fly.
  • Sublime Text has not been a good fit for users who only know a little html. We have not been able to encourage other users on campus to try it out. It is primarily used by our web team.
  • Notepad++
  • Brackets
  • Atom
Sublime Text supports more languages out of the box than any of the other products I've tried. I primarily work in HTML and CSS, but I also need to write php, json, java, jquery, etc. at times. I like that I never have to worry if Sublime Text will support a specific language. I also really like the interface of Sublime Text and the ability to change color schemes.
Sublime Text is fantastic for writing and editing code. It is by far my favorite program for writing CSS and HTML. However, I know I am not using the program to its full potential because it is difficult to learn how to use the more robust features like finding, running and installing packages to make my work more efficient.
