Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

Sublime Text is being used in a department by department basis. Each department can choose to use it or not. We have selected it for many of the advanced features that other applications like Notepad just can't deliver. As we are a custom development shop tools like Sublime Text are vital in our day to day life cycle.
  • Sublime Text does great at highlighting different types of text.
  • Sublime Text handles many different formats of text well. We utilize it a lot for XML and JSON.
  • This application is very fast at searching and editing.
  • Sublime Text could be better at handling oddly formatted text.
  • Sublime Text could be a little more intuitive, sometimes it is difficult to find the setting you are looking for.
  • Sublime Text could have a few more basic themes to choose from.
  • Sublime Text has helped greatly on ROI as it allows us quickly and easily diagnose issues.
  • We have returned our investment many times over by the hours saved.
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Code
  • Notepad++
Sublime Text stacks up very well against these other products. All three have there strengths and weaknesses. We utilize all three for different use cases. Sublime excels in just opening up and running. Code is more advanced but requires more learning to get up and running. Notepad++ is like notepad on steroids
Sublime Text excels at viewing text in the raw. This is especially helpful when working with various databases, systems and such. This allows us to see the raw test to quickly debug many issues that we could not see in other tools. This also helps greatly when working with web services and other third parties.
