Sublime Text is a cross-platform text editor used primarily to edit source code. The program supports a variety of different programming languages, such as HTML, SQL, Java, CSS, and Perl. It also features a highly customizable layout, split-editing of side-by-side files, and the ability to instantly switch between projects without save prompts.

The application helps you code more effectively with the Goto Anything feature that lets you open different files, search within a file, go to a line number, or jump to a symbol with just a couple of keystrokes. And when you really need to focus, Sublime lets you go into Distraction Free Mode, which is a full-screen mode that shows only your text.

The text editor is also highly extensible. You can install plug-ins that provide additional functionality to the editor, whether they change the theme of the interface or support additional programming languages.


Sublime Text is a sharp-looking and lightweight source code editor that can be customized to fit your coding needs. It provides support for a multitude of programming languages and helpful editing features. If you edit source code, Sublime Text is one of your best options.
