Sophisticated text editor for code, markup, and prose.

Overview

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

Features
  • 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 take you to line 100 of the same file.
  • Multiple Selections. Make ten changes at the same time, not one change ten times. Multiple selections allow you to interactively change many lines at once, rename variables with ease, and manipulate files faster than ever. Try pressing ⇧⌘L to split the selection into lines and ⌘D to select the next occurrence of the selected word. To make multiple selections with the mouse, take a look at the Column Selection documentation.
  • Command Palette. The Command Palette holds infrequently used functionality, like sorting, changing the syntax, and changing the indentation settings. With just a few keystrokes, you can search for what you want, without ever having to navigate through the menus or remember obscure key bindings. Show the Command Palette with ⌘⇧P.
  • Distraction-Free Mode. When you need to focus, Distraction-Free Mode is there to help you out. Distraction-Free Mode is full-screen, chrome-free editing, with nothing but your text in the center of the screen. You can incrementally show elements of the UI, such as tabs and the find panel, as you need them. You can enter Distraction Free Mode using the View/Enter Distraction Free Mode menu.
  • Split Editing. Get the most out of your wide-screen monitor with split-editing support. Edit files side-by-side, or edit two locations in the one file. You can edit with as many rows and columns as you wish. Take advantage of multiple monitors by editing with multiple windows, and using multiple splits in each window. Take a look at the View/Layout menu for split-editing options. To open multiple views into the one file, use the File/New View into File menu item.
  • Instant Project Switch. Projects in Sublime Text capture the full contents of the workspace, including modified and unsaved files. You can switch between projects in a manner similar to Goto Anything, and the switch is instant, with no save prompts. All your modifications will be restored next time the project is opened.
  • Plugin API. Sublime Text has a powerful, Python-based plugin API. Along with the API, it comes with a built-in Python console to interactively experiment in real time.
  • Customize Anything. Key bindings, menus, snippets, macros, completions and more - just about everything in Sublime Text is customizable with simple JSON files. This system gives you flexibility as settings can be specified on a per-file type and per-project basis.
  • Cross-Platform. Sublime Text is available for OS X, Windows and Linux. One license is all you need to use Sublime Text on every computer you own, no matter what operating system it uses. Sublime Text uses a custom UI toolkit, optimized for speed and beauty, while taking advantage of native functionality on each platform.

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. PROS: * Unlimited demo - use all features for as long as you like, pay when you decide to keep it. * Extremely customisable and extensible, to a fault - interface and syntax colour schemes, snippets, macros, customisable commands, build and command-line integration, plug-ins, you name it. * Amazingly large and friendly community - forums, wikis and irc, lots of community-driven development (themes, syntaxes and and plug-ins), and a wonderfully responsive developer. CONS: * poor and incomplete documentation - for such a feature-full programme, charging 'pro' editor prices, I expected a complete set of searchable docs. The half-completed online wiki is a poor excuse of a user guide. * plug-ins will be required - you will want to search through the web to find and install several of the many (wonderful) plug-ins available from the user community, which give the programme features for your particular programming needs and workflow. CONCLUSION Currently, more impressive than TextMate, BBEdit and - dare I say it - a contender for vim. It truly is Sublime.

Sublime Text is no longer my primary code editor (I use Visual Studio Code), but it is still the best editor in terms of overall performance and capability. I keep around for some things even though I use VSC for day-to-day coding work. I hope the developer keep it up in case VSC goes south.

Well, comments like "best editor" full stop are not really helping... :-p Yes the interface is nice and it really seems to have optimum functions for easy coding, but I can't seem to find things I find incredibly powerful in BBEdit such as Find/Replace in multiple documents (open or not) or even in a folder, comparison between two versions to find the differences, etc. May be it's there but I can't find it in the menus. It's when you look at the prefs that you understand it's really dedicated to coders: when you want to modify a setting you have to copy it in a new pref document and change its value... Not for the average user, of course. Despite its nice interface, I always come back to BBEdit to do the things I don't know how to do in Sublime. :-/

Sublime Text can indeed search all files in a project (open or not). Project support in ST is excellent. I used BBEdit for many years, but a few years ago I spent about a month using BBEdit and Sublime Text at the same time and eventually settled on Sublime Text.

A few important ST features that BBEdit lacks:
- Live linting, e.g. run flake8 as you edit. It is very dismaying that BBEdit still doesn't offer this as it is a crucial tool.
- Lookup symbols, e.g. to to see where a function or constant is defined.
- A robust set of plugins, including excellent git integration and clang-format.

I have found two things I prefer in BBEdit:
- Side-by-side diff is built in and very well implemented in BBEdit. ST has some good plugins for this, but I prefer BBEdit for this task.
- Splitting a view is simpler in BBEdit than in Sublime Text.

I highly recommend Sublime Text 3 - it's especially good for programming. In addition to marking up the text, you can set key bindings, menus, macros, etc. Once you learn to use it properly it can really cut down on some repetitive tasks.

Also, Sublime Text 3 is technically shareware. However, you get the full app and can use it as long as you'd like without a license.
