Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

Sublime Text is my go-to text editor when using any type of code. When I am building anything for my organization, it starts in Sublime and gets copied into Drupal. Other co-workers have seen my workflow and are always asking what text editor that I use. From the easy color coding, the code hints and just the ease of use, Sublime Text will save you so much time!
  • Color Coding: Every element in your code is color coded. Did you miss a semi-colon? Forget a bracket? The code will not color correctly until the correct syntax is used. This makes it very easy to debug your code if you ever run into a problem.
  • Code Hints: As soon as you dive into Sublime and start writing code, hints will start popping up when you begin typing. This speeds the process of writing anything as you can quickly tab through the correct response, saving you typing time.
  • Language support: Sublime has almost, if not every, coding language built in. All syntax can be color-coded to your preference!
  • Different views: You can have as many windows side by side within Sublime. When building a website you can have your HTML on the left and CSS on the right for easy reference.
  • The only thing that I would like to see from Sublime is a monthly/weekly newsletter with a tutorial. There is so much you can do with Sublime. I know that I am not using it to the fullest and I know I could speed my workflow even more.
  • Too many features? I honestly have not had an issue using this product and have been using it since college.
  • It's a free product with the option to donate.
  • It's fast and easy to use. Without much knowledge of the editor, anyone can jump in and start coding.
  • Works across Windows/OSX. No matter what you have, it will open any coding language and work smoothly without messing with the settings.
I have not used Brackets extensively, just for a few minor projects to sample how it works. I ended up switching back to Sublime Text because I am more comfortable with it. Brackets seemed to work as described—easy plug and play—but Sublimes interface seemed a little more user-friendly in my eyes.
Sublime is suited for any programmer, web designer or student looking to organize their code. It is fast, lightweight and is super versatile. Not to mention it is pretty much free. You will get a popup to remind you to donate to the developer if you have a free version but that is it!
