Sublime Text - License for Chaos-Project?
« on: February 01, 2013, 01:31:17 AM »
http://www.sublimetext.com/

I have found what I think Is the BEST text editor ever. I'm currently evaluating it but I would like to get a license (they don't actually enforce the trial period). and I would like to share that license with people here on CP (License can be used on as many computers and operation systems as you want).

I'm wondering, if others on this site also like the editor, would be willing to pitch in for that $70 license.

Looks decent, but not $70 decent.  I have half a mind to duplicate some of the features in a personal version of the software.

My brother uses that for everything. To me it just looks like an overcomplicated code editor, so I would probably never use it.

Exactly,  I don't really want to pay $70 unless others on the site want to use it too.

but again, like winrar the trial period isn't enforced , they don't even tell you how long it is. in fact, there isn't even a dialog saying "you haven't bought this yet" that I have seen, just "unregistered" in the window title


EDIT: Notepad++ can go die in a hole! this things is awesome!
EDIT2: F**KING BUILD SYSTEMS! with the ability to use regexp to navigate to errors lines and files bases on the console output! ALSO the best dam code completion I've ever seen short of having an actual IDE.
EDIT3: SCRATCH THAT! there is freaking FUZZY SEARCHING in the code completion  bgc -> background-color this is BETTER than any IDE I've ever used!
EDIT4: is a python command line and there are packages for EVERYTHING!
EDIT5: SNIPPITS! VIA CODE COMPLETION! Install-able via package control or creatable by yourself!

You know...if I actually needed it, I would SO be more than willing to pitch in like $20, but as I am now I do most coding in bloodshed and soon eclipse, and im pretty sure i won't ever do anything python related -_-

a must watch series of videos if you think you might like Sublime Text
https://tutsplus.com/course/improve-workflow-in-sublime-text-2/


and again it has an infinate trial period so feel free to use it now. I'm just wondering if people here want a license and get access to the beta and stuff like that we could buy it together

Some of the features seem to me like glorified search/replace functions (at least the ones in the GIFs). And when you're a programmer, fuzzy search seems kind of unnecessary. I agree with winkio that it's not worth $70. Though, it does look superior to Notepad++.

It's a lot more then gloried search and replace, it's multiple cursors with several keyboard shortcuts for selection. it's actual search and replace is great too. and two of thous gifs were a "command palate" (fuzzy searching of every command in the app) and a "go to anything" dialog (fuzzy searching of your entire project space and inside files once you put an @ symbol in there)

and I would agree it's not worth the $70 as it is now. perhaps $40.  but again it has an INFINITE trial period that in NO WAY restricts it's usage and there is NO annoying dialog that pop up about buying the software.

the license gets you access to the current version 3 beta which has a massive list of improvements (still not sure if it's worth it but you know). http://www.sublimetext.com/blog/articles/sublime-text-3-beta

out of the box it's about 3 times better than Notepad++ is with about 10 plugins. then you have the fact that there are about 100 plugins for this thing that are far better in quality than notepad's.

seriously, watch a few of those videos and try this out.

Licenses are per-user, rather than per-machine, so you can enjoy Sublime Text on as many computers and operating systems as you wish with your license.

Multiple Operating Systems or Computers
Licenses are per-user, so you're welcome to use the one license on all computers and operating systems where you are the primary user. For businesses, the number of users must equal the number of licenses.

Site Licenses
Site licenses are not offered for Sublime Text.

What were you trying to accomplish with $70?

Upgrade Policy
A license is valid for Sublime Text 3, and includes all point updates, as well as access to prior versions (e.g., Sublime Text 2). Future major versions, such as Sublime Text 4, will be a paid upgrade.

if we bought a License we would share as a site Chaos Project would be the user.
The current release is version 2 and the license works for version 3 which is in beta which we would get access too

I've been using Sublime Text for quite a while and, although I must say I've never used any other editor, I think it's great. There is, however, an annoying dialogue box that tells you you haven't registered that appears every few times you save, but other than that I really like it.

ya I only noticed the 3ed day. but it's really not that annoying. you just click cancel and it wont pop up for another 20 saves. and I found a REPL plugin for it. SublimeREPL, it's sublime.

ok, This thing has official jumped from freaking awesome to the best dam thing to ever have a place on my computer.

Just today I was working on the editor and I decided that it was a pain in the ass registering all these event formatting components sepreately, what with there being a data extractor, an html formatted, a selection handeler ect.

I had each type of function in 4 large classes 100+ functions long and the result was that I had to add each function seperatly as a component.

then I decided this was a pain in the ass and I would rather have a class for each event command with all it's peaces together, major re-factor time right? what with there being 104 event commands with about 25 of them implemented? copy paste hell was about to consume hours of my life.
or so you would think. using sublime text superb REGEXP search functionality I wrote a REGEXP to select all the function of 1 type, using the "find all" functionality to get a cursor at each one where I proceeded to type out a class statement and suddenly I have 104 classes, a multi row selection with multiple cursors and suddenly I have 104 command code on my clipboard separates into 104 cursors. a single copy paste and each class has a unique name. can you guess what happens now? that's right. three more REGEXP to select all of each type of function a single copy paste operation with multiple cursors for each.

10 minutes latter I have tuned 4 classes, each with 104 functions into 104 classes with 4 function each. another 3 minutes with multiple cursors and I've renames all the functions appropriately so that the interface would be uniform.

30 minutes to refator and modularize 800 + lines of code all because I only have to make 8 or so copy paste operations instead of 400.

this is god tier software guys

Great program. Looks really awesome, but haven't gotten to actually discover all it's features just yet.
Notepad++ is now uninstalled however, I like this one quite a bit more.

Oh, and Ryex? Am I your friend? =)
