Score 10 out of 10
Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text
- It's lightweight so it isn't clunky or slow.
- It's flexible; you can add or remove plugins to use it how it best suits you.
- You can integrate compilers with it.
- You have to add plugins to make it a functional IDE (it isn't an IDE out of the box).
- You do need to research to find the right plugin(s) for your use case(s).
- Lightweight and easy to use.
- Configurable per user so nobody's stuck in a one-size-fits-all that doesn't actually fit.
- Handles large files well.
- It's a great Swiss army knife type of tool for various uses on various teams.
- Notepad++, NetBeans and Microsoft Visual Studio Code
Sublime Text has a bit more flexibility and doesn't take up as much space or memory as some of the larger IDEs. Notepad++ is customizable too, but Sublime Text is better suited for code editing in my experience.
Do you think Sublime Text delivers good value for the price?
Are you happy with Sublime Text's feature set?
Did Sublime Text live up to sales and marketing promises?
Did implementation of Sublime Text go as expected?
Would you buy Sublime Text again?
It's very fast, and out of the box, it's minimalistic and easy to use. It's great for a text editor, and it's great for configuring your own IDE, but it does take some research to find the right plugins and modifications for your needs. It also works on Mac OS or Windows, which is nice.
