20 Comments on "CSS-Tricks Screencast #151: First Minutes with Sublime Text"
I see different opinions all over the place (in comments). Some say ST3, some Say Atom, some say Visual Studio, some say you "must" have a full fledged IDE etc, etc.Here's the truth, you should use what you're comfortable with, and that's the entire truth in a nutshell. I don't use IDE's, don't like them. But, I can see how some would love them, and had I started out with one, I'd probably be using an IDE right now. That's what this screencast is about, giving people an idea of what Sublime is like, and if you like it, fine.
@6:49. nice one
Sublime is cool <3butAtom FTW 😀
Atom is better
Your argument is so compelling. So many fact. So many convincing arguments. I don't think anyone will continue to use Sublime Text after your perfect proof.
I've been using Sublime for years, having also played with VS Code, Atom and others. There's only one app I use these days and that's WebStorm. Forget using simple text editors, today's complex front-end or full stack development ecosystem necessitates a proper IDE, and WS is an almost perfect solution to that.It has built in support for task runners, unit testing frameworks, ES 2015, JSX, git, Node debugging, scss etc.Sublime will always have a soft spot in my heart, but really, I haven't looked back since.
Long Live Sublime Text!
I'm mostly moved from ST3 to Visual Studio on Mac. I love the built-in terminal to help with screen real estate.
I see what you mean. I use it mostly on only one / two panels, but I know ST has 3/4 and even row support.
teamhuggies I quite liked it, especially for working with React but the interface wasn't quite flexible enough and it didn't really offer much over Sublime.
Paul Eustice yes that's what I meant!
teamhuggies Do you mean VS Code?
Why Sublime when you have Atom for free?
Interesting, didn't knew it was for free. When I tried ST2 it was for free just for few weeks.
I have Sublime 3 for free. Just like everyone else.
Aside from the fact it doesnt support ligatures, sublime remains the best code editor to this day.
Try opening a large project or a file in atom… arguably better perf on an electron based app?… nope your argument is erroneous.
After Notepad, I migrated to Textmate, and then eventually to Sublime (as I'm sure many others did). While I love Sublime Text 3, and have paid for a license for every iteration I've owned, some wonky performance issues have made Sublime simply unreliable for me. For my money (or not, since it's free), Atom now occupies the "best code editor" space and I'd highly recommend anyone having issues with Sublime to give it a whirl — it comes with almost all of what makes Sublime great, but with arguably better performance.
