I am a recent convert to Sublime. I’ve used Atom for years, and of course I became very accustomed to things about Atom (primarily its extensibility). I downloaded Sublime after reading something how awful Electron apps are, as well as a comparison between different editors. Sublime was obviously much faster than Atom, which is awesome.
However, I am growing frustrated with Sublime after using it more. I am on mac OS, and adding packages seems to just be broken. I cannot get a package to work for the life of me. I followed multiple tutorials on how to get them installed, and nothing works. I saw in another post here that Package Control on mac OS does not work properly. And that Package Control is maintained by volunteers. I have to ask — why in the world is Package Control not built into Sublime?? It seems like it is an essential feature.
I also have a problem with project management in Sublime. I manage dozens of websites, but there is no easy way to manage them. In Atom, this was solved using an extension. Maybe Sublime has a similar package that would work for me… but again, I can’t add packages, so if there is one, it would be useless to me.
At this point, I am disappointed and thinking of requesting a refund on the money I have spent on Sublime. It’s nice overall, and much much faster than Atom, but basic things in it just don’t work for me.
