Good ideas here:
bird-eye of the code (tiny pic of the entire file).
Multi-insertion points
search on the bottom line (command line, like in vim).

Still far away from being a serious competitor to vim, but if it does some of the snippets magic that textmate does (and that vim cannot fully emulate as of yet) it might be interesting.

The bird-eye view is really something I always wanted from an Editor.
I will try it ASAP, thanks!

OK. That caught my eye.
* tinjaw goes to check it out.

OOOOO Pretty. Although I do love functionality or beauty, it would love to have both.

Well, functionality is not that great now, ... I guess on par with braindead editors (that most people have no problem using day-to-day), but nothing compared to A-class editors (vim, emacs, ed, slickedit, textmate).

I *hope* future versions do add features.

It's lightning fast, that's for sure.

syntax files and snippets are very few and rudimentary.
If this guy manages to get some early adopters, an active forum, and contributors, he might get a good bite of the market.

He seems to be very resposive to feedback;
If this really is python + Qt, it must be portable.
He's onto something.

Vim is gtk, thus easy to port.
The problem is that matching vim community may take years smiley

it's $59; a bit expensive for a notepad replacement smiley

Well, the unthinkable happened smiley

 
Quote
I had started evangelizing (forum posts, blog post), when the following happened:
1-double-clicked minimap
2-open dialog pops up
3-Entire system froze; not even the task manager works (looks like a GDI leak).
4-had to do a hard reboot.
 
This is, as a fellow developer, as bad as it can get. Having to reboot my system without saving first makes me remember NEVER to open that application again.
 
If this is a beta (which is not according to version numbers) you should say so.
I have a long list of suggestions, and a lot of hopes for this tool that have just evaporated today.
Minimap is a brilliant idea; but vim has 2^38 features that this editor doesn't have, and it has never crashed my system this badly in over 10 years of use.

A pity it is so pricey..

Eh, the price is a pittance if you literally spend all day every day in it . . .

Another big change for Sublime Text 2 is cross-platform compatibility.

I don't know if the developer plans to do this for Sublime Text 2, but in version 1 the "free trial" never ends. It just pops up a nag box every now and again when you save your documents after the trial ends.

I really like it and would love to buy it--when I don't have so many other bills that need to come first. Until then I still enjoy it. I'm not using it all day every day (or even at all, most days) but when I do, it sure is nice.

I downloaded the Linux version and like the color schemes, simple scripting of user preferences, and animations. But beyond programming, I've no use for it. Yet I see the attraction throughout -- no clutter, unlimited customization, and simple, self-contained installation and deletion. For $59, it'll need more of its edges rounded.

+1 w/Zaine. Much as I love the bird's eye view feature, it's still missing a little too much to woo me away from Vim.

If you're new to Vim - or coming to it for the first time from Windows - try the Cream editor.

Quote
Why Cream?

Vim is a powerful and full-featured text editor, the popular descendant of the 1976 Vi text editor.

But Vim has a steep learning curve. It was not primarily designed to be easy to use, favoring performance and technical flexibility instead. Because it is so different, learning to use Vim takes time.

Cream shapes Vim into an interface you probably already know (sometimes called Common User Access [ext.link] ). Whether you are writing emails or developing large software applications, Cream saves you time and gets you up and running quickly.



I'll confess, this is what I use most times in NIX. I'll only run vanilla Vim when I need to do something I can't more easily accomplish in Cream.

Where'd you get that impression? There was a new build posted, but it's not the first-and it's beta. Still no word on upgrade policy when it is "final".

One killer feature this round is vintage mode--all the sublime goodness, but with vi command mode and key bindings

I got that impression from Jon who told me in the forums that build 2111 is the "release" version of build 2110 as a reply to my question of this is the "final version" now.

The blog entry might be an indicator.

Anyway, here is the original posting:

You didn't ask if it was the "Final" version. You asked if it was the official release.

Quote from: tux
So Build 2111 is the official ST2 release?

A beta release can still be an official release.

From the Sublime Text 2 download page:

The current build of the Sublime Text 2 Beta is 2111.

I am using sublime text 2 and on linux I don't feel like I am missing windows. This editor has lot of features and good for web dev. However It doesn't beat php designer 7(last used version).
