Why is Sublime Text Awesome?
Here are 3 reasons
Secondly! Sublime Text feels faster and more responsive than most other code editors I’ve tried.
The third reason Sublime rocks is that’s it’s very customizable. And this makes it easy to create a coding environment that suits you. So I made a class on how you can start customizing it. Watch it. Learn from it and boom 💥 you can create your happy coding place! There are so many awesome people that make rad stuff for sublime it’s ridiculous (thank you).
Here are a few resources to get you started.
This is a big personal preference. Here are a few lists.
There are a lot of pluings for Sublime. Here are a few of my favourites.
- If you write HTML and CSS, Emmet is the best. I have a class on how to rock n roll with Emmet.
- Color Highlighter is great for underlining and highlighting hexcodes and other forms of color in text-format.
- AutoFileName for autocompleting filenames!
- All Autocomplete find matches in all open files of the current window and makes suggestion based on that as you type.
- Browse Package Control to find what you want.
- You can also Google “Best Sublime Text Plugins” or “Best Sublime Text plugins for X”
