I recently switched from Notepad++ to Sublime Text 2. I have been a fan of Notepad++ for years but a friend of mine mentioned Sublime Text 2, from that point on I was hooked. Some of my reasons for making the switch:

  • Plugin Support: Sublime has a huge plugin library.
  • Themes: I love the themes and color schemes on Sublime. One of my favorite themes is called SODA: http://buymeasoda.github.io/soda-theme/
  • Multiple Cursors and selections.
  • Works on Macs and Linux environments. I don’t really use either but its nice to know its supported if I were to use either.
