Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

Our organisation mainly deals with Web Development Apps so we need an editor that can out point errors and give suggestions about the syntax in different languages even on the same page. It's common to have Java Scripts and PHP along with HTML, CSS on the same page. The best feature about this tool is it makes suggestions to the user about the common syntax on the language that you are working, without any external setting.
Other great thing about this tool is its tab view of different pages altogether that makes navigation too easy unlike other competitors. You also have Tree view of the files and folder you are working on the left column for quick works.
Moreover it has this feature which almost no other tool has: a "zoomed-out" view of the page pinned to right top corner for pointing a particular portion of module on your thousands of lines of work.
  • Has a free version.
  • Text highlights are great for debugging.
  • Better find-replace feature than others.
  • Can easily work with multiple projects without confusion.
  • Accurate syntax suggestions.
  • Less and complicated plugins.
  • Formatting a large document file can be confusing.
  • Often prompts to purchase a new version.
  • No auto-saving a document.
  • Cannot highlight a particular portion of text.
  • Free editor means saving.
  • Great community support makes it easy to find solution to errors.
  • Does not need any high-tech system to run.
  • UI does not make you tired even after long hours.
On certain levels all have certain pros and cons but Sublime has community support and a huge future ahead due to its features, making it lead all the others.
We generally do not need to contact their customer care as the great commjnuty support solves all its problems.

Highly recommended for beginners as this tool can boost their developing much with its in-built tools that make learning fun and easy.
Even professionals do not need to memorise certain syntax and with some shortcuts coding or developing environment can be made faster than usual.

Sublime Text Training

It's very similar to other editors. It just has many additional features and even those are not that hard to learn.

Configuring Sublime Text

It is so lightweight that it can run even on older PCs.
Some - we have done small customizations to the interface - It was so easy that first thing most people do is to modify interface without even knowing how to use it.
No - we have not done any custom code
