Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, markup, and prose. You'll love the slick user interface, extraordinary features, and amazing performance.

Goto Anything. Use Goto Anything to open files with only a few keystrokes, and instantly jump to symbols, lines, or words. Triggered with ?P, it is possible to:

  • Type part of a file name to open it.
  • Type @ to jump to symbols, # to search within the file, and : to go to a line number.
These shortcuts can be combined, so tp@rf may take you to a function read_file within a file text_parser.py. Similarly, tp:100 would more...

Sublime Text really lives up to it's name. And since it runs on OS X as well as Linux and even Windoze, it's a good choice for long standing Mac dudes like me who are increasingly irritated by the way Apple behaves and who might switch to more...

This is a great editor to be sure, and right around the time I paid for it (December 2013) the developer went dark and hasn't been heard from since. The forums on his website are buzzing with people asking what's going on and quite a few people are now openly saying he's abandoned the product (although that's conjecture). Bummer.

Recently from the developer, as found in the forums:

"From the Sublime office: We are not selling to Github, we are not stopping development of Sublime. As noted by another poster, this is effectively a one man band (I'm here to answer sales questions, process your refunds and get the mail so Jon doesn't have to). The past few months of silence on the development front have been a combination of boring back end work (taxes, new payment platform) as well as a break for the man driving this whole operation. No, we don't currently have a loud internet presence, which is can be an understandable cause for concern-something we intend to address once we move into the production version of 3. There is a vision for continued growth and development, there is momentum behind Sublime Text; it is not dead, just slow."

I've been using jEdit for years and have been wondering whether trying another editor was worth the time investment. Has anyone used/compared Sublime Text (or any other editor) with jEdit? If so, would you mind sharing your thoughts/opinions?

Thanks, I appreciate any insight anyone might offer.

No nested folding + Can't handle files correctly

this editor doesn't even have nested folding. Dozens of users have requested it for years now, but the Sublime team is known for NOT listening to its customers.

Also, it doesn't handle files correctly and sometimes even ERASES FILES for you. Big warning: Sublime does NOT honor the Mac file system fully, and refers to files by directory path. This sometimes leads to unintentional overwriting of original files(!!!) This is such a serious problem I can't believe the developers aren't fixing it. Instead they have chosen to patch this with annoying dialog boxes asking confusing and totally unnecessary questions.

I recently switched from BBEdit to Sublime Text (ST), after using BBEdit for years and trying Sublime Text 2 and 3 beta for many months. The main reasons I am switching to Sublime Text:

- ST shows code errors as you type (with the SublimeLinter package). This is invaluable, especially for interpreted languages. (The C/C++ linter does not work for me because it cannot find my header files: ST cannot see changing environment variables, and my projects use a package management system that manipulates environment variables).

- ST has outstanding type-to-open-a-file. Unlike BBEdit, the dialog comes up quickly and the search algorithm is excellent (it favors the first letters of camelCase and underscore-separated words and filters out useless files).

- ST also has outstanding search for symbols in a project. (BBEdit also has support for this, but it's not fully automatic and I've never used it.)

My main worries about switching from BBEdit:

- Poor support. There is a forum, and questions are sometimes answered by users, but I see few signs that bugs are acknowledged or addressed. ST doesn't even have a formal bug tracker, at least one that is public (though the community has set one up).

- The built-in diff is lame compared to BBEdit, and packages cannot fully compensate because they cannot support running diff from the command line (e.g. to support 3rd party tools such as SourceTree) nor offer useful GUI controls.

Common features include:

- Both have very good project management, with minor advantages both ways.

- Both have very good multi-file search, with minor advantages both ways.

- Both can be enhanced with scripts or macros.

- Both support columnar selection.

Overall, I think both are excellent and both are a bargain if you do a lot of coding.

Hands down the best code editor there is. Wicked fast, super extensible and customizable with a super simple user interface that gets out of the way, letting you focus on your code, and it also packs a plethora of powerful time saving features that make it a pleasure to work with. It is also backed by a very large and passionate user/developer community having plugins available for practically anything you'll ever want or need.

Really, as far as code editors goes, it simply does not gets better than Sublime Text.

The best editor. A bit on the expensive side though!

Sublime Text really lives up to it's name. And since it runs on OS X as well as Linux and even Windoze, it's a good choice for long standing Mac dudes like me who are increasingly irritated by the way Apple behaves and who might switch to Linux in the future.

By the way: Sublime Text 3 is now in public beta.

Yeah, it's a great editor even if you're only ever going to use it on a Mac. But if you like keeping your options open -- especially with Apple acting like it's just itching to ditch Teh Unix one of these days -- nothing can touch it.

Really a joy to use.
Highly functional, very intuitive, not bloated. It has a beautiful GUI and a handy sidebar.
I used Textmate and BBEdit, and this one is a whole lot faster! Thanks :)

I tried Sublime Text a few months ago, but shelved it in favor of the old standby Textmate. Yesterday, I installed Sublime again when I was reading a really good programming tutorial and the author recommended it.

I guess the first time I had tried it, I really didn't know where to look for the cool stuff. Now I know, though: all the cool stuff is in there.

Although it's not as lightweight as Textmate, it's lighter than BBEdit, and it's faster than either of those by a lot. It's not much slower to load than a console editor like nano. Seriously, I have no idea how the developer does it. The speed alone is such a huge deal, I would put up with some missing features.

But there really aren't any missing features. Sublime doesn't break my Cocoa emacs-style bindings. Furthermore, it provides keystrokes that let me do Emacs-style text selection, AND a "vintage" mode that provides modal style selection/editing a la vim. (I can't evaluate that mode, though; I came out of the Emacs camp of the Great Unix Editor Wars.) It supports textmate bundles and themes. It supports highly complex preferences and keybindings, because the configuration is all done with JSON files. (If you like a nice GUI for your settings, you are admittedly out of luck. But this is, of course, a programmer's editor.)

And then, there's the sui generis features that Sublime brings to the table. There's a little "minimap" over on the right that shows the user where s/he is within the file, which is nifty, but not really a game-changer. And there's the Control Palette, which allows users to manipulate settings and open files (even locations WITHIN files) all from a preposterously speedy fuzzy search. That one IS a game-changer.

This program is just sick. It's got so many features, it's just GOT to be bloated and slow, right? No, somehow it's the fastest GUI editor I've ever used.

I haven't checked out Textmate 2 yet; I'm waiting for the dust to settle. Certainly, that long-awaited update will have to be a big, big improvement over Textmate 1.5 for me to switch back from Sublime Text 2.
