You know when a kid gets a new toy and is so excited that wants everyone know how cool the toy is? Well I feel like that kid today as found new tool that some of you might already know about.
Every now and then I look up new tools. It's been few years with Notepad++ and thought I should give something new a try. Once my favourite, Homesite officially is dead and buried now. I still cannot believe that even though it wasn't improved since a decade or so Adobe was still charging money for it. Luckily I came across Sublime Text 3. I Downloaded the thing, installed and got totally blown away. All basic editing features that I constantly use are in there. Duplicate line by CTRL+SHIFT+D instead of CTRL+D as in Notepad++. Installing new plugins (they call it packages in ST3) is a breeze and in few minutes I had SASS support, Git and all ready to work. And the best thing is you configure everything by modifying JSON structures in config files. How simple is that??
Long story short Notepad++ compares to Sublime Text 3 like chariot to Merc C63. If you are still one of those unfortunate souls that code with Notepad++, you really should give Sublime Text 3 a try. For me there is no going back, not any time soon anyway. This thing really puts smile on my face and if you haven't already, you can download this gem from http://www.sublimetext.com/3.
