Search - "sublime text 3"
Got a couple laughs at an interview for the software listed in my resume:
"Sublime Text 3 (unregistered)"
Tip for devs (esp front end):
Sublime text (and few other inferior editors) has a plugin called "transparency" that allows your editor to be transparent.
Windows 10 powershell consoles can be made transparent.
1) Open browser
2) Open command prompt over it with 75% transparency
3) Open editor over both with 50% transparency.
4) Set editor to fullscreen, no-distraction mode to center the text (Shift+F11 in sublime)
Enjoy coding while constantly viewing the code, the browser and monitoring the cmd prompt at the same time, without having to click Alt+Tab a zillion times.19
I developed a simple scholarship management system for my school using Laravel, MySQL, jQuery and Bootstrap, I did it for free since college students from my country have to pay social service to get their degrees. Everyone in the scholarships department seemed to be really happy with my work and they evaluated my social service with 10/10, but yesterday they asked for one last favor: to go talk to the new social service guy who'll be supposed to maintain my project, a mid 30's dude who was really pissed off from the beginning because he wasn't even able to deploy the project, he wasn't even able to clone the project from Github. Ok, so I tried to explain to him the tools I used and how the project was structured, but everything I said seemed to piss him even more, so I stopped and had a chat like:
Me: "Look man, do you know or at least have basic concepts of PHP and MVC frameworks?"
Guy: "Yes, but I'm a project manager, not just –despectively– any programmer, and you didn't write proper documentation, it's impossible to deploy your project with the manual you wrote, I cannot work like this".
*We go to their computer and I clone and setup the project in 3 minutes.
Guy: "Yes, but I still don't know how the project works, I need everything documented. If I have to change something, I don't know where to look.
Me: "Man, that's why asked you about knowing PHP MVC frameworks".
Guy: "I cannot work like this, nothing is documented, I don't even know what's that software you're using *points at Sublime Text*. Or tell me, can you arrive at a place where they expect you to work with something you don't know and they have no documentation?"
*At this point he was really pissed
Me: "Well... Dealing with non-documented software is what I do for a living"
Guy: "I don't know what companies you've worked for, probably not big ones..."
Me: "Well, I actually work for *I mention one of the biggest music apps in the country*"
*Guy ironically laughs
When I gave my feedback to the lady in charge of the department, I told her that this guy was really pissed off at how things were done and that I wasn't so sure of him being capable of maintaining the system. She told me not to worry, that the guy became a well known asshole in the office only after a few days, and that she'll probably have to find something else for him to do. It'd be hilarious if this guy ends up capturing scholarships in the system I made.4
Tried switching from sublime text to VS Code and Atom.
Now going back to Sublime text.
Sublime text is <3.13
Boss: some consultants worked on this feature extending some legacy code
Boss: it's 90% done
Boss: they used FTP. It uses iframes and we fired them when they couldn't get the frontend modules working in sync with the backend.
Me: git checkout -b herewegoagain
git diff-tree --no-commit-id --name-only -r 666w3wl4d
*copy output list of files to sublime text 3; select all lines; add to each:
gitk --follow [filename] > src/.notes/herewegoagain/[filename].diff
Me: It's -10% done. you'll know I'm almost done when I enter the fugue state. You'll find me at this address. Give me this USB stick and a 4 pack of redbull and I'll do the merge.6
So Ive been wondering.. Do companies make you use a Text Editor/IDE of their choosing or do you pick your own?
and side question, Whats your favorite Text Editor/IDE? I prefer VSCode and Sublime Text 3.25
I am forced to use IDE and Text Editor against my will.
I hate eclipse, but what to do, Salesforce support that IDE only, although VSCode has one plugin for that, but it's not the best,
Why I hate Eclipse you ask?
1. Null pointers
2. No Emmet
3. No Autcomplete
4. Runs like shit on Windows 10 (See my last rant for windows 10)
5. no pretty print extensions/plugins for isml
For my personal projects I am forced to work on Sublime because again VSCode decided to drop
1. Syntax Highlighting
(Fuck you for hating php)11
When Atom is just not quite there on the performance front but Sublime Text 3 has been in beta since 2013..... I just want a good editor with good plugins!!9
Just a short "dafuq?" about VS Code.
I have a MacBook Pro from last year, so it's a capable machine. And there I was today, sitting on the train, coding some Python in VS Code.
Suddenly it got all laggy. Like, one second behind my typing, dropping keystrokes, stuttery scrolling... the whole deal. The system itself was perfectly responsive and the activity manager showed the CPU at 30%. After a minute or so, it magically recovered and worked as if nothing ever happened.
What the actual fuck was VS Code doing? I mean, it's a fucking text editor. In 2019 this should be a bloody solved problem! There's absolutely no reason to use around 30% CPU in the first place, and use that much and still *lag*. Holy crap, and people ask with a straight face "what's wrong with reinventing everything based on web technologies?" Fuck everything Electron-based. Make it ElectrOFF already.
*takes deep breath*
So, editor suggestions are welcome. I used Sublime Text 3 before VS Code, I'll likely return to that.22
Just discovered Origami for Sublime Text 3.
Works like a charm, just need to practice the shortcuts4
In the past: "Alright, have the day off, so can do some serious work (work on my game project). Let me just check my mail first... And a cpl of sub-reddits... And see if there are any updates for Unit3D, or any interesting forum posts, or new assets on asset store that look nice... And check some online newspapers just to see if anything is going on... And check if anything new has been posted on slashdot since I last checked 5 minutes ago (nope)... And maybe see if there's any updates to Sublime Text or new useful packages that can help improve workflow... Ooh came across article on how to improve workflow... Hm someone mentioned a new task-management system in comments, gotta check that out... I'll just sign up for a demo-account and... Hm but what if there are any better ones? Better google for comparisons. Wait, isn't there a new episode of Silicon Valley today? Gotta see that first, no time tmr. Hmm also new episode of Archer, and American Gods. Better get watching these out of the way first, or I can't concentrate... Ah, wait, it's dinner time, no point starting anything until after that."
Now: All of the above, plus "I'll just check devRant real quick before I... hmm... interesting rant... *scrolls and reads rants and comments for 3 hours*"
How am I supposed to get any work done? :_(3
I was a Sublime Text 3 purist for a long time... recently made the switch to Atom. I honestly haven't looked back. Anyone else make the same move?18
I would say a code editor.
It just vastly improves your efficiency, and combining it with a few plugins can make it even better.
I initially started out with Brackets.io, but it was mainly for web development, I went on to use Atom.io and later Visual Studio Code. However, I now use Sublime Text 3. Its simplicity and its vast array of extensions make it the best general purpose editor.1
I'm giving a presentation on different text editors on Friday to the class I'm helping teach. I'm excited it's the beginning of the year and they're new our world and I get to show them and review 5 editors.
If you're curious the the 5 editors are
Sublime Text 3
No IDE they have no need for an IDE yet.11
I find lately my biggest challenge as a developer is sticking with one editor. Currently it is a battle between Sublime Text 3 and Atom. Not a battle where I switch every few days. This is a battle where I find myself switching at least once a day for no real reason.16
Installing pluggings for my sublime text has made my editor more wonderful(linter, codeigniter snippets, color pickers, git integration ), if we have editors like that who need ide.
All right, I switched to Visual Studio Code from Sublime Text 3 and I really like it so far. But I have spent an hour looking for a solution to hide this annoying tab bar. I have already disabled tabs but it still shows this bar with filename on it.12
What software do you use at home for software development?
I use Sublime Text 3 on Ubuntu 16.04 and a server with GitLab EE.13
I'm thinking about switching to Sublime Text 3..Used VS Code until now, but its so slow.. I mostly do front end(html, css, js, angular) and a bit of asp.net core.. Someone using Sublime and can recommend some good plugins?9
It took my some time to explain my dad, why he should not use Notepad as PHP editor and start use something like Sublime Text 3...
I'm also teaching him PHP and JS.5
I've been dismissing the Sublime Text 3 "unregistered evaluation copy" alert for almost 4 years now, and I never actually considered to buy a license. Then I realized that everybody I know didn't.
I'm dead. Atom is so slow. When I turn it on, it takes 3 minutes to fully load. After I edited the styles.less file, It's slower than Pycharms or InteliJ. I'm thinking about switching to either Emacs or Sublime Text 3. I used both of them before. I hate Sublimes themes but It's easier to use tham Emacs. Vim is not an option.13
Alright so cool story about my idiocy and it’s relationship to Learning Ruby on Rails.
So I decided to start learning ruby and it takes a lot from python(idk which One came first correct me off I’m wrong)
The tutorial I started was using version 4.2 of rails or something and the latest version was 5.1 so me being a fucking idiot continued to install and learn plus I had to open 2 questions on stack exchange that could be solved with an apt-get install command and after 3 days of my understanding what the actual fuck was going on. I reinstalled Mint and got it working.
After JetBrains and sublime text and all my shit was off my NAS I started the tutorial again with everything installed correctly and quit at the 4 minute mark because my bundle install command didn’t work correctly still having trouble and I feel like I should just stick to HTML and CSS1
A PHP variable "declared" in the jQuery.
I don't know why Sublime Text (3) does that.
(Sorry for the quality, the screencut was for friends but I thought it could belong here too.)
I don't use jQuery, previous "dev" did.
I don't actually care about this.6
Curious to know what devRant thinks about a macbook air (newest model) with i5 and 8 gb ram for a developer.
Usage consists mainly of running jetbrains IDEs, like IDEA and CLion, maybe some front end using sublime text.
I know it would work now, but I'm curious if it would still be decent in, say, 2 or 3 years. Thanks!2
when you find a single invisible character in each of your sql files in visual studio that causes a sql implosion saying
invalid syntax near ''
Sublime Text 3 and other tools didn't help. required manually finding this time, in 20 files..... with an overdue project.
I wanted to burn visual studio to the ground4
