It looks clean. No status bars, no line numbers, big, readable codes and iconography, and, still has the Sidebar and Minimap which is what made Sublime Text awesome.
My take here is, your editor is your canvas, not a pilot's cockpit. You are creating something. You're not driving a plane. Remove distractions, take your Zen a step deeper!
Here's the default Sublime Text 3:
First of all, if you're coming from editors like Notepad++, (Ugh, those were the days...) Sublime Text 3 already looks nice out-of-the-box by design. Read design story here:
Make yours pretty too:
1. Install Package Control
Preferences -> Install Package Control.
2. Install Material Theme
Material Theme via
Package Control, activate then pick your favorite color. I like
Palenight, it's light on my eyes.
3. Install Fira Code
Fira Code is my favorite code font, download and install it on your system.
4. Update Settings
Hide Status Bar:
View -> Hide Status Bar.
Add settings (
Cmd + , in Mac or
Ctrl + , in Windows):
"color_scheme": "Packages/Material Theme/schemes/Material-Theme-Palenight.tmTheme",
"font_face": "Fira Code",
