Sublime Text : The Text editor you'll fall in love with.

(JS file of the ProfitLossCalculator opened using Sublime Text)

Sublime Text is not just a text editor It's a powerful programmers' tool with slick interface, unique feature which are not available in any other code editor.It's really awesome that I've been using this for a while and highly recommend to all the programmers out there. It won't serve you as highly sophisticated integrated development environment but it'll make coding fun.

Most apparent one of the features available in Sublime Text is the document preview section on the right hand corner of the editor, which enable users to easily navigate up and down through long source codes without scrolling up and down over and over again. It's nifty and time saving,  you got to admit. 

Sublime text also includes auto fill feature as depicted in the screenshot above, mind you this is not "Intellisense" which is available in Visual Studio/Netbeans, nevertheless it can help save you lot of keystrokes by remembering the stuff you already typed in.
Syntax highlighting for various languages are available built-in as depicted in the screen shot below, and also various color themes to choose from.

A few most prominent feature are listed below.

Goto Anything

Use Goto Anything to open files with only a few keystrokes, and instantly jump to symbols, lines or words.
Triggered with Ctrl+P, it is possible to:
  • Type part of a file name to open it.
  • Type @ to jump to symbols, # to search within the file, and : to go to a line number.

Distraction Free Mode

When you need to focus, Distraction Free Mode is there to help you out. Distraction Free Mode is full screen, chrome free editing, with nothing but your text in the center of the screen. You can incrementally show elements of the UI, such as tabs and the find panel, as you need them.

You can enter Distraction Free Mode using the View/Enter Distraction Free Mode menu.

Split Editing

Get the most out of your wide screen monitor with split editing support. Edit files side by side, or edit two locations in the one file. You can edit with as many rows and columns as you wish.
  • Take advantage of multiple monitors by editing with multiple windows, and using multiple splits in each window.
  • Take a look at the View/Layout menu for split editing options. To open multiple views into the one file, use the File/New View into File menu item.

Cross Platform

Sublime Text is available for OS X, Windows and Linux. One license is all you need to use Sublime Text on every computer you own, no matter what operating system it uses.

Sublime Text uses a custom UI toolkit, optimized for speed and beauty, while taking advantage of native functionality on each platform.
