Sublime Text X

Sublime Text X

Postby jps on Fri Sep 17, 2010 1:05 pm

If you're keen on Sublime Text for Linux or OS X, then I expect this will be of interest: http://www.sublimetext.com/x (see also http://www.sublimetext.com/blog/articles/sublime-text-x).

It's early days yet, and I don't expect anyone to actually be using it yet, but I'm still keen for any feedback.

I installed Sublime Text X on Win XP SP3 and it can't load due to the following:

The procedure entry point inet_pton could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.dll

jhawk28: thanks for letting me know, it turns out that's only available in vista and later: I'll fix it shortly.

Awesome to hear! Right when I was finally thinking of making the swap to Linux I found Sublime and couldn't bare without it.

Any reason there are only thumbs of the preview images? Can't really see anything.

Also a tad unfortunate about the UI redesign. I personally felt Sublime handled it perfect. It gives you exactly what you need. Nothing more. Nothing less. I feel the vertical tabs take up a lot of space and you loose a lot of real estate. Will it be an option?

Not sure if you ever read it, but I posted a suggestion about implementing a virtual window manager IN Sublime. I have yet to see anything like it in any editor and I think it'd be brilliant. Have each virtual window be nearly it's own Sublime instance. Would save tabs and windows if they're split and such. Possibly things like which project is open as well so you could have a different project open in each virtual window. Have ctrl+<n> to swap between them. Working on a big project you could have the back-end in one, front-end in another, etc.

Very cool news Jon. Looking to check it out but the 64 bit installer link doesn't seem to work.

First impressions...

I'm not sure I like the vertical tabs as opposed to the horizontal ones. I rarely ever have more than a few files open at a time so I feel like that's a lot of wasted space. I'm trying not to jump to conclusions so I'll feel it out for a bit. However, the UI for it feels really smooth. Maybe if it were just a small section of the side that would be better?

Where's the MiniMap? I think that's a pretty core feature for Sublime. I have grown to love it and wish it were in all apps. Is that on it's way? Where exactly would it fit in with the vertical tab bar on the side?

I love the fact that it's cross-platform. I think that will go a long way with community involvement. Should existing plugins work now, in the future, or never (haven't tried yet)?

re: vertical tabs, there's still more fleshing out to do on the sidebar, I think it'll justify itself more in the future. I'm not opposed to having on option for normal tabs as well. The sidebar will eventually be resizeable, of course.

The minimap is there, it's just sitting on the right hand side. Still more work to do on it: the view port isn't being displayed, and it doesn't respond to mouse input.

Plugins aren't enabled yet, no. They will be in the future, but there may be some changes to the API.

Also, just to be clear, the UI is in a fairly fluid state at the moment, and nothing is set in stone. There's more I'm planning to do with the side bar, but if it doesn't work out, then it'll go.

I was just working with some test new files so I didn't have enough content to see the mini-map. Kind of like it better on the right. Cool.
