Long time readers of this blog will remember that I used to tweak GNOME’s gedit editor a lot. However, I ditched it for Sublime Text and I am not looking back. Here are some of the things I like about Sublime:
- Offers a good out-of-the-box experience, including an amazing “fuzzy search” tool (ctrl+p)
- It works on ubuntu without any problems
- Fast (enough)
- Multiple cursors!
- Once you have installed Package Control: An integrated extension repository
- Encourages you to write your own extensions
- Looks good
