Just had a quick go with it. Changed its syntax to HTML and I like it! The one thing I LOVE about the web software on Macs is the font they use for programming it’s so much nicer than the serif font on Dreamweaver. I know you can change the fonts on DW but you can’t get it like the font in Sublime and Coda, thanks for the recommendation!November 11, 2012 at 6:38 pm #113978chrisburtonParticipant
@Watson90 Forever, I think but you get popups notifying you when your trial is up and that you should purchase a license. When you can afford the license I would certainly pay for it. It’s really worth it.November 11, 2012 at 7:03 pm #113983
Yeah it’s always good to give the developers something in return especially when it’s deserved. I’ll have a better play with it on my next project and see how it turns out :)November 11, 2012 at 8:41 pm #113985
@Watson90 Yeah man, that post made me laugh. It is for windows as well. You can change the font as well. The fonts wont be as bada$$ as in a MAC but im sure you can find some online for free ( inconsolata, monaco, consolas[built into windows]) to name a couple.
To change the font goto: Preferences / Settings – User. The code below is mine, you can certainly just add the font and font size.
"color_scheme": "Packages/Color Scheme - Default/Pastels on Dark.tmTheme",
You can get some tasty fonts from Google Web Fonts and millions of other font websites too.
@ChristopherBurton, yeah man, paying for a license for ST2 was well worth it.November 12, 2012 at 2:26 am #113995
Thanks for that @JohnMotylJr, I was looking up some videos early hours this morning, and the shorthand tricks look immense. Such as typing HTML:5 I think and it lays out all the mark up ready for you to get started.
Also that bar at the bottom where you can start nesting tags within each other such as a div with a class of header and a ul with 6 list items etc etc. That’s some fancy sh*t!!!November 12, 2012 at 5:58 am #114005
@Watson90, So we totally arent using this thread for web hosting anymore, however, Sublime Text 2 is just that good we can get away with it.
Last thing, since you use Windows 7 i would suggest going into your:
Preferences / Settings - Defaultand find this code:
"font_options": ["directwrite"],November 12, 2012 at 5:17 pm #114082joshuanhibbertMember
Also, I’ve decided to share my Sublime Text preferences file on GitHub: https://github.com/joshnh/Sublime-Text-Preferences/blob/master/Preferences.sublime-settingsNovember 12, 2012 at 5:19 pm #114083
What does that code achieve @JohnMotylJr?
I’ll have chance to have a better look at Sublime tomorrow, I’m working on a basketball website for my brother in law, so I’ll give it a try :)November 12, 2012 at 5:33 pm #114086November 12, 2012 at 5:34 pm #114087
Ahh right thanks man :DNovember 13, 2012 at 12:54 pm #114216
@JohnMotylJr & @joshuanhibbert – Just playing around with Sublime Text 2 and I’m already loving it, I have already made my first snippet which when I type html5 and press TAB, it brings up all of the relevant markup to get me going, it’s truly a pleasure to use and I haven’t even scratched the surface!November 13, 2012 at 5:11 pm #114239November 14, 2012 at 1:03 am #114273
^ Couldn’t be anymore right! So does this mean goodbye to DreamWeaver ?????November 14, 2012 at 2:04 am #114274
I believe it does from what I experieced last night. It does a better job keeping my code clean to with the indentation etc.
One thing though. I dragged in some project folders to get started, is there a refresh button to update the folders structure? Or is it just good old F5?November 14, 2012 at 8:45 am #114293
