Sublime Text Reviews

Hate it.

Negative Review by ki4jgt
about Sublime Text May 2015

Always filling in things and guessing things. If I don't get the brackets quite right, I can end up with extra brackets where the program tried to predict my need for one. Annoying. Would rather have a normal text editor. Geany/Pyscriptor works great.

about Sublime Text and Eclipse Jul 2013

Sublime is really really powerful and I love using it but I hate getting used to it every time my version expires and they make me download the latest version as I never know when there will come the day when all I learned about using Sublime becomes worthless just because I don't support their latest version. Buying isn't an option neither, as I don't know if my bought version will work unchanged forever, neither.

Unfortunately I can't recommend anything better neither as the free as in freedom alternatives are by far not as powerful as long as you don't touch monsters like Eclipse, which can do much more but not all of what Sublime can do. (I especially love multi-cursor editing in Sublime)

about Sublime Text and BBEdit Feb 2013

For years I wanted something like BB Edit for plain-text editing on Windows. This not only fits the bill, but it's better than BB Edit and crossplatform.
