Among its siblings like Atom, VS Code, sublime is the fastest and most fluent. But because of the slow update cycle and being a paid software, the community is smaller, therefore extensions are less, but enough to cover everyday usage and most popular languages.

Pros:

slick

Cons:

community is not very active

Necessary packages:

• Maybs Quit

• Sidebar Enhancements

• Trailing Spaces

• Sublime Linter

• A dark theme, like Soda Dark

• imo: Vintage (VIM keybindings) with vintage_start_in_command_mode and vintage_use_clipboard set to true

Pros:

A lot faster than Atom

Cons:

Vintage mode clipboard interaction

Now, Atom and VS Code have envolved a lot

Pros:

Native and faster UI interface

Cons:

Not many as integrations as competitors

Been using Sublime 2 for years. Finally time to upgrade!

Pros:

The original. Faster, by far, than all the Electron-based editors.

Cons:

Perhaps not as many constantly-updated integrations.

I love Sublime for its simplicity and versatility. This is my go to editor for almost anything coding related. I venture out to Xcode and Android Studio when I have to, otherwise it's Sublime all day.

Love the new logo too!

Pros:

Simple, nice colors, versatile, multi-cursor editing and much much more!

Cons:

Settings are a little clunky since they are 100% code based. But this is a strength at the same time, because they are code based.

I was using the beta version for more than 2 years and it was really good. I wouldn't have known that it was a beta version if they didn't say so.

Updates are pretty frequent. Major releases take time but the developers push minor updates frequently but they lack in communication. Other than that, ST3 is one of the best text/code editors you can find out there.

Pros:

Fast (tried with 10000+ LOC), lightweight, have packages for everything I need, customization

Cons:

If developers would be willing to interact more with the community, that would be great.

Used this for NASM32 Assembly, Web Development, and even Java.

Pros:

It is very clean and also has tons of settings.

Cons:

Package Installer is a little weird to install when you are new to the program.

For simple day-to-day editing I always use Sublime, and since ST2 I never looked back.

Pros:

By far fastest editor, WBond (packagecontrol.io) is now part of Sublime team

Cons:

Updates are like miracle, you have to wait for it.

It is cool

Pros:

The new interface is good

Cons:

Adding a feature that allow you run your project without having to go back to your project folder like notepad++

I'm using Sublime more than 4 years. Before I've tested Eclipse, NetBeans, Notepad++, PHPStorm. Best feature - it keep my unsaved files.

Pros:

Easy to use. Don't eat my computer memory. With new features I can use it for both small and big projects.

Cons:

Nothing.

Overall it has a good experience for front end development

Pros:

Light & User Friendly

Cons:

Slow on multiple file search

I've used Sublime for years and bought a 3.0 license. I live in this editor and it's some of the best money I've spent in a long time.

Pros:

Faster than everything else by far. Just easy to use

Cons:

Not as customizable as Atom in minor ways

Didn't like the icon and sharp tabs as previous version was good and smooth. ctrl+shift+p menu was much slick and minimal in previous versio

Pros:

none i could see

Cons:

Didn't like the icon and sharp tabs as previous version was good and smooth. ctrl+shift+p menu was much slick and minimal in previous versio

the world's best text editor, very customizable. Some frustrating API quirks/limitations, but mostly workaroundable.

Pros:

fast, reliable, easy to customize

Cons:

not all platforms treated equally by the devs, some bug fixes take a while to arrive

My favorite text editor outside of IDE and Vim.

Simple, yet powerful and fast.

What else is needed from text editor?

Pros:

fast, powerful, simple

Cons:

friendlier module system, better default indention options

My go to editor

Pros:

Quite fast, nice UI, multiple cursor

Cons:

Not good with clipboard (single item in clipboard)

I was using sublime before atom came in, and after ~ 2 years with atom I can't just go back to sublime again

Pros:

- Quite fast

- Has a beautiful rendering engine (comparing to Atom) and nice look and feel

Cons:

- No package manager like apm

- Some packages has very annoying upgrade process

- Keybinding is just overcomplicated

I switched to VS code for about 3 months - had some issues which broke VS code for me and so I was back on Sublime and will stay - it was like coming home with a complete make over!

Pros:

Fast, Reliable, Clean

Cons:

----

I love Sublime from v2. Very fast text editor with a lot of plugins

Pros:

Opens very fast, has a lot of plugins

Cons:

there is not very convenient shortcuts for find/replace

What can i say? i use many text editors before, but stop trying others when i found sublime text

Pros:

Very good product for writing code

Cons:

i didnt find any con yet
