Sublime Blog


1.0 is out! Download it and take it for a spin, feedback is more than welcome!

Like any bit of software, it’s a long road to release, though in truth it’s only the beginning. There’s already a long list of features to add, and it’s only going to get longer with your feedback.

As feedback comes in, the feature list is going to get re-prioritised and added to, so the sooner you give it a try, the better chance you have of seeing your wish list come true!

  1. It’s for windows. Why not a linux build?

  2. Mark: While Sublime Text is at heart a cross platform application, there’s a lot I couldn’t get done before 1.0, so proper Linux support is on the backburner for the moment. It’s certinly on the list though!

  3. I am very keen, but I’m waiting for the linux port!

  4. I’ll pay you $59USD for a Linx port.

  5. Love the idea, and it looks great! Any chance of a Ruby.sublime-package soon?

  6. It’s very pretty! Well done. It’s very easy on the eye. Editing feels very natural — the multi-select find is great, especially paired with the mini-map.

    I’ve got a couple of questions;

    1) Is it possible to get two instances running, as displayed on your Dec 28 post? Or is that one instance over two monitors (which would be great…)

    2) can users extend the list of languages? I’m looking for a ruby editor at the moment — could I hack something together myself?

  7. Hey! Great text editor. Very slick and very well thought out.

    Any chance that you’d have emacs style keybindings?

  8. re: Ruby. While it is in theory possible to add extra languages, it won’t be in practice until I get the documentation for it up. It’s shaping up like Ruby support will be in the next version, however.

    re: Multiple instances. It was indeed one instance over two monitors in the previous post: Choose ‘New Window’ from the File menu and you’ll be good to go.

    re: Emacs style keybindings. Sublime Text has quite a rich key binding language, so most of the emacs keybindings can be done immediately (some things, like the mark, excepted).

  9. Neat! Good job Jon! Any chance we can get support for C# files? I only breifly checked out the demo version, but can it have auto-complete support (like Intellisense in Visual Studio) Thanks.

  10. One more thing…

    Have you considered a component version of Sublime Text? Like a Windows Forms control?? It would be cool to incorporate into my own applications.

  11. John; thanks for commenting on the ruby support. I’m guessing some users will be willing to contribute support for their own pet languages. blog about it when it goes in!

  12. Right. I’ve bought my copy. Life’s too short to skimp on a good text editor.

    Comment by Steve C — January 21, 2008 @ 9:44 pm

  13. Very nice! I love it! I’ll definitely buy a copy, but I’m going to hold off just a bit. The only thing lacking that I can see are being able to add new languages (LUA please?) and new color schemes (Monokai!)… otherwise. I’ve added your blog to my daily reading, keep up the awesome work!

  14. Steve: Fantastic, thanks for the support!

    Sean: Thanks for the kind words, hopefully I’ll be able to get the documentation on these up soon rather than later.

  15. I absolutely *love* this text editor! The only thing that would make it better is if it worked on my OS X machine too ;)

    Keep up the good work!

  16. No running in virtual machines, huh? Shame. Although I’m not too keen to give up my Vi editing model, I would have loved to take this thing for a spin.
