Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

Sublime Text is used by many of the web developers and programmers I work with both in my personal business and in my work at Virginia Tech. Sublime Text has many automated features that increase efficiencies and debugging of code. In my experience, developers and programmers tend to select Sublime Text for the features it offers, including the ease in linking to git repositories.


  • Sublime Text offers integrated automation for replacing the same string throughout the code. This feature alone has saved me lots of time.
  • Sublime Text offers integration with git repositories that increase efficiencies and help streamline communication on updates within a team.
  • Sublime Text also serves as a great simple text editor. I keep a window open and use Sublime to edit snippets of text for websites. It is especially useful to quickly strip out word processing tools formatting.
  • Sublime Text has color coding for different HTML tags. This makes it easy to quickly scan the code.


  • While the auto tag balance feature is helpful in some instances, I find it sometimes hurts my flow of work, especially when I am cutting and pasting snippets of content or code.
  • The tabs feature for multiple documents is useful, but it is not as easy to separate the tabs as it is in other tools I have used.
  • File names auto set using the first line of text in your file. I'd like to see that feature set to default to off. I can see it would be useful in some cases but generally, it is not helpful for me.
  • Sublime Text saves time when using some of the automation features.
  • Sublime Text helps with team communication when linked to a git repository.
  • Sublime Text has a competitive price that makes it easy to say "yes" to buying licenses for the entire team.
While I use both Sublime Text and BBEdit, I opt to use Sublime Text for the automation features and also because most of the programmers and developers I work with prefer Sublime Text. As I use Sublime I continue to find new features that are built-in to make me more efficient—and time is money!
Sublime Text is well suited for writing code for websites and for programming. Sublime is the favorite tool for most of the developers and programmers I work with because of the features that make coding more efficient. While I have used Sublime for taking notes, it is not as well suited for general text editing.
