I have mixed feelings about this editor, unfortunately... I love it and I hate it at the same time.

Why I love this editor:

  • Because of this editor very fast and comfortable for me, it's faster almost any other competitor except maybe Notepad++ and UltraEdit in terms of performance...
  • It's increases my productivity in 20-30-100x times (not kidding here) if compared to any other alternative. I can super easy and fast do really crazy stuff while working with this editor.
  • It has really awesome plugins, and themes, it really has a lot of built-in features which saves tons of time, solving tons of issues, helping really a lot in work.

BUT! I hate this editor too, because of:

  • Lack of support of different encoding like Korean, Japanese, Russian (cp1251) and really weird implementation of detecting these encodings...
  • Because of python in core sometimes it slowdown really too much for specific files some things like searching, editing, etc, while other editors do the job well...
  • Sublime Text in 2019 - losing the competition to VSCode, Atom, and other hipsters editors for really a lot of really interesting things like themes, new plugins, community. Really a lot of people moved away from Sublime to VSCode... Also, for me very sad to see when already a lot of plugins and themes and features abandoned.
  • VSCode has really powerful features like IntelliSense for different languages, and Sublime Text really needs it too (debugger, IntelliSense, and integration with many tools for faster and easier coding, writing code, etc with a lot of useful and correct suggestions...)
  • Lack of Git support and integration like in VSCode
  • Really weird installation of plugins and themes, no preview thing and centralized inside editor page with previews how plugins/themes look like. I forced to open a foreign repository just to read what I need.

Sad, but if the thing will continue to be like it is right now - the editor will die really soon...

Whaaa, never had any encoding issues O_o And I think VSCode is just a bloatware in comparison. It can't be compared to Sublime Text at all. A much better comparsion would be Atom editor.

Annoying popups for update and upgrade many times a day is really stupid shitty solution.

I think this is really a very lightweight software, with many plug-ins and everything you want. It's a good software

I dislike the find/replace shortcuts and generate UX enough to downvote the app, despite everything else about it being good :-O

Sublime Text has been my favorite programmer-friendly text editor for a while now. The extensibility and customizability are areas where it shines. But it's also light and fast.
