Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

Sublime Text (version 3) is mostly used for creating and editing custom web projects. For our main product we use Visual Studio IDE and Visual Studio Code for SPA, but for smaller websites with custom code, Sublime text is a better fit, because it's small and light. It has a large community and many useful plugins.
  • Community support. Many coders use Sublime Text and you can easily find answers to your questions.
  • It's light, loads quickly and work fast.
  • You can find packages for almost everything.
  • Package control could be more clear. Also, the installation of package control requires step-by-step instruction.
  • They could add built-in versioning control such as VS code has.
  • Modification and of user settings it's sometimes hard to find and hard to sync settings between different machines.
  • It was the first text editor to be broadly used in our company (since version 1). It was free at that time and many small custom websites were build using it.
  • Even now it is used by many developers. Developers share which packages and plugins they use for certain projects, which makes collaboration easier.
It is more advanced than Notepad++. It was easy to find plugins and better UI (much better). Also folder view, but it is less advanced than Visual Studio code. VS code is currently winning the race and more and more programmers in our company are using it. They need to add more features to code and improve UI.
When you have a simple website with folder structure and want to edit different types of files, Sublime Text is a good tool for that. You can get plugins for code coloring, code generating and suggestions for different types of languages. You can use the built-in console which is called terminal to use CLI.
