Sublime Text Reviews

Extremely easy to use out of the box with file folder hierarchy

Its a dead simple text editor to use that supports file tree folder structures on the left pane, unlike notepad++

There's plugins you can install with it as well but if you need things like intellisense or an actual IDE environment I strongly suggest going with either

why all the hate?

I'm not sure why there is so much hate around this. I love SublimeText.
Been using version 3 for quite some time now. Found out about it from one of the forums within the firm I work in. In my firm this seems to be a favorite. Plus, this is free! Granted there is that Pop-Up reminder that comes every 10 or so saves but it really isn't that big of a deal. To add to that the plug-ins available for this are just brilliant. Add to that the looks; it's very clean, and this becomes a perfect text editor.

It is not meant to replace your IDEs but use it for what it is, a text editor.

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.
