Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

It's used by personal preference by a subset of developers. It's a fast, lightweight text editor that I personally use for front-end development. I prefer it over other editors simply because I like the interface and its relative speed. Other developers also use it primarily for Javascript or CSS/HTML development.

Pros

  • Syntax highlighting for JavaScript is great.
  • Distraction free mode.

Cons

  • Not sure if I just am not using it right but JavaScript syntax error highlighting isn't obvious.
  • Doesn't remember word wrap as a setting.
  • As a front-end dev, not having to wait for the app to launch to get started on coding is priceless. Not sure how else to put it but the time saved is a massive plus.
More reliable and intuitive than TextMate or Atom and more feature-filled than an Emacs. The colors/syntax highlighting is superior.
Never had to use their customer support before. There is ample documentation online so it's straightforward to find a solution to any problem you might encounter. For example, I needed to convert a string of HTML code to a properly formatted HTML file to "modify." Easy to do when there are so many users of the product who have needed to do that same thing before.

Comparing it with other text editors for JS development, it's just faster and better looking. We've tried some other ones on Mac and PC but prefer this one.
