ST 2 vs ST 3: what are the real differences?

ST 2 vs ST 3: what are the real differences?

Postby romrp on Fri Jun 27, 2014 8:04 pm

Hello Folks,

I use the ST 2 for quite some time and I just love it. I installed the beta of the ST 3 and to be sincere, as far as my knowledge go, I did not see any difference.

Could someone please point me the major addons?

Thank you,

Rom Pereira

  • Speed.
  • Python3 - which includes threaded plugins.
  • Packaged plugins.
  • Sidebar now has icons.

And I'm sure there is more that I can't think of right now.

The symbol indexing in a project is a huge improvement: just use f12 when on a function call or do ctrl+shift+r to navigate among your class quickly.

Thank you for your answer jbrooksuk. Maybe since I mostly develop web apps, usually in the regular trio html/javascript/php, I never noticed this speed gain, usually with a maximum 10 to 15 scripts open at all times. I only tried the ST 2 and 3 on Mac OS X though in my mac mini and macbook pro, both quite powerful computers, but again, I have no idea if that would benefit such a small app. Even with all scripts open, ST never passes over 100 Mb in memory. By packaged plugins I imagine you mean ability to work with them compressed. I have a friend that works with python, he keeps bragging all the time about it. I did not spent the time to study it yet, but it is in the bucket list, that is for sure!! The sidebar I noticed before...

All the best,

Rom Pereira

Hello Clams and thank you for your answer.

Darn this feature is cool!!! Took me a while to learn that you need the project created and the files loaded to it to it function correctly...

All the best,

Maybe you meant that they are separated from the main app in the memory. :)

I understand the user's sadness, but very feel developed applications today let you interact this much with its main development. In my humble opinion ST is an unique application and even if ST3 delay another year I would say that is worth the while. But again we always hope that those "lazy developers" move their buts waaaay faster :)

Holy crap, how did I not know this feature existed? I've been reluctant in the past to create projects because I felt they weren't worth the hassle. That changes today.
