Sublime Text 3 😆

At work, I think all of my pals use Visual Studio Code. They were surprised when approached my desk and found my editor to be ST3 😃

Of course I do:

"All Autocomplete",
"Dockerfile Syntax Highlighting",
"DotENV",
"EditorConfig",
"Elixir",
"Git",
"JSX",
"Ruby Slim",
"Sass",
"Sync Settings",
"Terraform",
"TypeScript Syntax"

My favorite one is sync settings. It lets me saved my ST setting in a github gist and use it across the machines I use. It's a time saver.

I use ST3 too, I have very few plugins and no autocompletion (well, aside the one that suggests you the symbols within the open file) and I use the command line A LOT (grepping, git, diffing, running tests and so on).

I used to use VSCode but I switched back, don't have a plan to reverse that decision

Yes, command line for git and tests. Some pals use VS Code because it's "easier" to have the terminal in the editor.

I prefer to have multiple terminal tabs to run git commands and tests.

Best text editor I've ever used. I much prefer it to VSC

It's just so fast.
There are some plugins that I miss and sometimes I use VSC as Xdebug client, but else, Sublime Text is sublime.

Its search and replace is quite a bit slow compared to VSCode though, it's the only thing that I find annoying.
