    Pros: 

    Fast, Reliable, Clean

    Cons: 

    ----

    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: 

    A lot faster than Atom

    Cons: 

    Vintage mode clipboard interaction

    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: 

    slick

    Cons: 

    community is not very active

    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: 

    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.

    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.

    Robin DowlingDeveloper @ Minutes
    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 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: 

    Native and faster UI interface

    Cons: 

    Not many as integrations as competitors

    Now, Atom and VS Code have envolved a lot

    Franco Correa has used this product for one year.
  • Pros: 

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

    Cons: 

    Perhaps not as many constantly-updated integrations.

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

    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.

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

    Light & User Friendly

    Cons: 

    Slow on multiple file search

    Overall it has a good experience for front end development

  • 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.

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

    Naseem Raad has used this product for one year.
  • Pros: 

    Faster than everything else by far. Just easy to use

    Cons: 

    Not as customizable as Atom in minor ways

    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: 

    fast, powerful, simple

    Cons: 

    friendlier module system, better default indention options

    My favorite text editor outside of IDE and Vim.

    Simple, yet powerful and fast.

    What else is needed from text editor?

    Andrejus ZlotnikovasSoftware Developer
    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.

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

  • Pros: 

    Quite fast, nice UI, multiple cursor

    Cons: 

    Not good with clipboard (single item in clipboard)

    My go to editor

    Arpit Arya has used this product for one year.
  • 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 was using sublime before atom came in, and after ~ 2 years with atom I can't just go back to sublime again

    Thorburn Lostor has used this product for one day.
  • 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++

    It is cool

    Victor Alagwu has used this product for one day.
  • Pros: 

    fast, reliable, easy to customize

    Cons: 

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

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