Minimalist editor for hardcore programming

Sublime Text is a free minimalist coding editor developed by Sublime HQ for desktop use. This development and IT program enable you to solely focus on your code, leaving all the other types of eye-candy out. This pared-back coding tool should never be underestimated as it is capable of supporting most programming languages and can work with multiple documents at the same time—each one on a different tab. 

Is Sublime Text free?

The binary file of Sublime Text is free to download and be evaluated. However, it requires a purchased license for your continuous use. If you will use the program individually then, you must select and buy the personal license. This is a one-off purchase that comes with 3 years of updates. Once the 3-year updates are done, you will be required to do an upgrade to keep on receiving further updates.

If the program is for an organization, the business license is the right one to be bought. Unlike the personal license, this can be purchased on an annual tiered subscription basis. The amount is based on the number of seats you’ll get—for example, there exists a 10-seat license, an 11 to 25-seat license, and a 26 to 50-seat license. Any seats more than fifty will have a fixed price of the highest amount.

What is Sublime Text good for?

Despite the tool’s minimal style and lightweight size, Sublime Text is heavily-packed with exceptional features. However, these are placed in the form of plugins and extensions that can be a bit of a hassle—especially for beginner users of this coding editor. Nevertheless, it is still the ideal text editor for large projects as it is capable of opening and editing multiple files simultaneously in the fastest way possible.

Not only does its incredible navigation feature called “GoTo Anything” enables you to access any element of your code immediately, but it also gives you permission to zoom out and view their code as one solid page instead of unnecessarily scrolling through lines individually. More importantly, this is highly customizable for any style of coding you want to achieve.

Streamlined for large projects

Sublime Text is a fast and smooth text editor that is perfect for editing large projects. It supports most of the coding languages you can possibly use. The “GoTo Anything” navigation feature it offers is everything you need to get the job right and quickly done. For beginners, however, it is possible for you to be lost—especially since most of its features are packed in a series of plugins and extensions.

Sublime Text is a minimalist coding editor that will let you focus completely on your code.

Sublime Text works by focusing on what it really important - the code - and leaves the other types of eye candy out. The minimalist interface that can be customized with a dozen different color schemes. It also includes a really handy mini map on the right side, which enables you to quickly move from top to bottom in your code. This isn't seen in other code editors and is a really big plus.

Even though Sublime Text is seriously pared-back, don't make the mistake of thinking that it lacks features. This programming editor supports most coding languages and can work with multiple documents at the same time, each one on a different tab.

Syntax highlighting, code snippets, and multiple selection will make your work easier. Sublime Text plug-ins are also a major help, allowing you to add endless possibilities to the application - oh, but it doesn't support Zen Coding.

In its last version, Sublime Text was accused of being a little difficult to get into. While it's still not for programming novices, there's plenty of online support and help, so you should never be too far from a word of advice.

If you're looking for a minimalist, efficient coding editor with support for multiple programming languages, Sublime Text may be what you need.
