Overall Satisfaction with Sublime Text

Sublime Text is my go-to for any extensive coding or for when I need to write new code. The CMS I'm using has only small boxes for inputting code and often results in a lot of scrolling with little option to extend the size of the box. Sublime Text helps me to open up the code and see it clearly and as more of a complete whole. It's also helpful because it will automatically adjust the colors to whichever code format. This makes it easier to find and recognize issues, and just to read. (My CMS displays any code as all one color).
  • User-Friendly and Intuitive – it's a pretty simple and straight forward software that doesn't take much to learn how to use.
  • Aesthetically Pleasing - the design of the program, especially the colors used when a code type is selected, is pleasing to the eye.
  • Makes code more readable – being able to take the whole of a chunk of code and open it up in this software, with the colors indicating types of elements within the code, makes it much easier to read the code, locate errors, and do complex work with it.
  • Auto-recognize code type – it would be nice to have it recognize what type of code without manually selecting it every time or even just a default setting for your most commonly used code type.
  • Being able to run/test the code without using another software would be very helpful
  • Invalid code detector – for code like CSS, something that flags anything that isn't a valid standard code type.
  • Ease of Use
  • Simplifies Complex Work
  • Versatility
  • Makes it much easier to do extensive custom front-end coding for pages on the website since our CMS code input blocks are limited in terms of display.

My CMS has a small window in which I can edit custom HTML/CSS. It can be expanded some, but not as much as I would like. It also displays all code as dark text on a white background. On a page where I am doing extensive custom coding, it is helpful to see it in a larger window and in a color-coded display so that I don't have to strain my eyes as hard. Especially when I'm trying to scan for specific elements and target issues and so that I don't have to scroll endlessly in a tiny window.
