"One of the best text-editors out there"

Comments: An overall great text-editor, lightweight and easy to use, perfect for developers that want to customize their coding experience.

Pros: I remember the first time I saw Sublime Text installed in the computer of a fellow developer, the black background blew my mind, the interface was sleek and super minimalistic. It's been five years of that day and I am still using it daily. When I need to compare files, search in files or work on multiple files at the same time Sublime is my way to go, the Go to Definition or Anything feature is also super helpful when dealing with big projects. Sublime Text is a dream came true for fans of tweaking their tools, you can customize almost every single aspect of the editor and with an active theme developing community it's hard to get bored of the appearance of your editor. The selection of plugins is huge and you can extend Sublime text to adapt to your needs, frameworks of choice, syntax highlighting and so on. I love the integration with Emmet. Besides that Sublime is cross-platform and lightweight, you can run in seamlessly in not so powerful machines, Linux, Windows, etc. One thing that has saved my day many times is that Sublime will keep the workspace and unsaved files even if my computer crashed or suddenly restarted, I was relieved to find my work done once I opened Sublime again.

Cons: The package control is still not as nice to use as in another text editors when you install a package the progress of it and the successful installation notice are easy to miss (just a tiny text on the bottom bar). The packages bring another problem as well: many of them have been abandoned, are buggy, outdated and can make the editor crash easily. Sublime is a powerful text-editor where you can run your own projects, for Phytonists it's a great deal but it's not a full IDE and you will need many plugins to extend the editor enough to reach some of the basic features on a full IDE. A toolbar could be of great use for people like me that keeps forgetting keyboard shortcuts. One thing that it's quite annoying is the popup asking you to buy the software, being out there so many open-source editors this little annoyance can lead to switching to another tool. Recently I had to work on an Angular 6 project and to use Typescript on Sublime Text and find the needed packages was time consuming and not that easy.

"Best option to choose as a Text Editor"

Comments: I'm happy to use Sublime Text because its fast and sometimes you don't need to create projects or open projects to make changes in one or two files. Its best for opening a file and exploring folder.

Pros: - Sublime text is by far the best text editor available with huge support for a number of languages even free version is feature rich
- Availability of different color modes is a plus in a simple fast and light weight text editor
- Beautiful code highlighting even for full development because if debugging is not needed then folder explorer is the best option to easily navigate between files and work on different projects at the same time
- Unlike other text editors Sublime has a full feature text search and great feature to search and replace text in a document
- Ability to add third party extension and extend core functionality of Sublime is just an other great feature

Cons: - Would have been great if debugging were available in free version but unfortunately that's not the case. But again sublime text is just a text editor and should not be used as an IDE
- If you don't pay then a notification will keep asking you to pay which kinda frustrates sometimes but still software remains usable even if used free version
- There are so many active version which is kind of confusing which one to use and which one to leave.
- Well for a text editor I must say these cons are acceptable because again it should not be used as an IDE rather should be used as text editor

"Sublime, simple."

Comments: Overall it's a one of the best code editing software I've used and can strongly recommend to developers.

Pros: Sublime is one of the fastest coding software in the world. It has simple usage, has a lot of libraries contributed by community.It very ease to use not only for python dev, because it's written in python and has defaults in it, but also for web developers.

Cons: Because this software is one of the best it's hard to mention any serious cons that has sublime but very scarcely it crashes with memory issues and it does not have history keeper like more big IDEs like WebStorm.

"A customizable IDE for everyday coding"

Comments: I started using Sublime about 5 years ago. I saw it as an upgrade over notepad/notepad ++. I have enjoyed watching it grow and the features increase. In the last year or two new IDE's have come out. They have massive feature sets, and many are great tools. I have not been able to leave the comfort of Sublime 3. I have attempted to use some of these other massive programs. Only to find them to be a massive bottleneck on some of our older systems/small VM ware instances. I have found it nearly impossible to embrace an alternative as I would not be able to use that alternative in every environment that I work. I am a huge fan of Sublime. I do acknowledge that many new IDE's are making this a highly competitive market. If you need a consistent editing experience. You can literally run Sublime off a thumb drive and carry it everywhere with you! Sublime is the most consistent editor I have used.

Pros: I like that is lightweight. It barely uses resources. It boots in a flash. It is great on multiple OS's. No matter if I am on OSX/Linux/Windows I can have my familiar editing experience with me. It has extensive plugin options. You can customize the software in a flash using the built-in command-line style extension loader.

Cons: The system for installing extensions is great and easy, but it is not robust on features. You need to do your homework outside of sublime to figure out if it is the right extension for you. You also need to consult these outside websites to even get a good picture of what all extension options are out there.

"Good choice but not the best"

Comments: Sublime was my fast text editor for many years. When I needed to edit a code file without the need of IDE features or when I needed to do it on a computer with low resources, sublime text came to the rescue.

Pros: I used Sublime Text for years, it is a tool that, unlike the ones that existed at that time, worked very fast. Today is still one of the lightest and most powerful tools that exists in the market and that would be the most interesting feature it has. Thanks to Sublime Text I met Emmet, the writing engine where you can do things like write in several sections of the same document at the same time, upload or download portions of code within the document as if it were a block. A powerful tool that you can customize, from your style of colors, thanks to Sublime Text I also knew Monokai, the color scheme that nowadays, years later I still use.

Cons: There are a couple of things that I do not like about Sublime Text and one of them is the reason why I ended up using another application. The first one is the pop-up message to remind you that you are using the free version and if you wanted to buy it. It is the most annoying thing that exists and appears every time you save a document a few times and to develop applications is annoying since you save the document about 30 times per hour minimum. The second thing that I do not like has to do with the evolution of the application. When I used Sublime Text there was no other similar one. But today there are many others that have the same characteristics of Sublime plus other features that I use a lot and that's why I ended up migrating to another application.
