Everyone programmer needs a Text Editor – quick and responsive one. I usually prefer Notepad++ or something similar (notepad – like thats an option?). Recently I’ve started to utilize Sublime 2 on my own environments…Its quickly becoming my most used text editor especially when configured properly. Why? Well, its got basic programming scripts built into it, syntax highlighting, and all the little nifty features – plus you can make it completely black or invert it as much as possible. When developing software – convenience is essential. It allows for me to have multiple Ruby on Rails folders up and micro-manage the projects. I can easily just add packages and functionality that makes it twice as productive. A lot of individuals are using Sublime as a primary text-editor / editor for programming. Is it right for you – that depends on the person. It works for me…

So here it is…I downloaded it quickly on ubuntu;

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-2
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install sublime-text
  4. Then follow; http://blog.codeclimate.com/blog/2012/06/21/sublime-text-2-for-ruby/ for additional configuration…

Enjoy!
