The geeky thread: show off your Sublime Text startup time

The geeky thread: show off your Sublime Text startup time

Postby tobalsan on Tue Oct 02, 2012 11:37 am

Hello,

yesterday i was investigated some startup time latency issue, and manage to decrease startup time from around 3.5 sec to 1.3, yay ! Then i thought i wanted to compare to other results.

Come here and tell us which / how many plugins are installed and what's your startup time.
I'll start with mine.
[Plugins]

Startup time ~ 1.3s
I noticed that SublimeCodeIntel, sadly, considerably increases startup time. If i disable it, i get down to 0.5s!

Huh, you actually helped me discover why Sublime text took way to long to just open for me.

I have way too many plugins to list them all. This is the total items that I have in the Packages folder:

And here's the startup time. I just counted the time after I clicked on the icon:
ST2 with Codeintel enabled: 15 seconds (cold start)
ST2 with Codeintel disabled: 3 seconds. (warm start)
Opening ST2 again with Codeintel enabled: 8 seconds (warm start)
Opening ST2 again with Codeintel disabled: 3 seconds (warm)

I don't know exactly why Codeintel seriously lowers the time, but I'm going to keep it disabled. At this point, I have no idea why I even have it installed. It's one of those plugins that's regularly in the "top 10 ST2 plugins" but I don't think I've used it too much.

Oh and I'm using a 4 year old mac which is already pretty slow with only 4GB ram but having ST2 open in less than 5 seconds is just bliss now. I'm so happy! :D

Mine says:
Code: Select all
startup time: 0.111318

It has some secret sauce though :)

My current startup times are 0.357193 seconds (I assume) for startup and 0.097752 seconds for plugin init. (Edit: new numbers — now they're the same length in characters. Beautiful perfectionism.)

Nilium, jps, would you share your plugins list ?

jps, could you shaure your secret sauce :D ? Or is that "sauce" is fat-free sauce (i.e 0 plugins) ?

haha, yeah, he's probably only got C++/Vintage/Default packages enabled and a custom or dev build of Sublime
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt

I can, I doubt it'll help much though, since my setup likely won't jive with everyone else's setup (since I do game dev using C/C++, whereas it seems like most folks using Sublime are dirty, filthy web developers). Simple `ls | pbcopy` of my packages directory:

Code: Select all
Alignment
C++
CSS
CoffeeScript
Default
Diff
Git
HTML
JavaScript
Lisp
Lua
Makefile
ManPages
Markdown
NilKit
Objective-C
Origami
Python
Regular Expressions
Ruby
ShellScript
SublimeClang
Text
Theme - Nil
User
XML


Quick note: I keep SublimeClang in my `ignored_packages` list since using it's buggy as hell and sort of a last resort. It doesn't play well with Objective-C and is iffy enough with C++11 anyway. I should probably just remove it.

My personal thingies. Specifically a handful of snippets that I made and a couple plugins specifically for coding in C, C++, and Objective-C.
