#1

Hello,

Hello, you know how I can install SublimeTest on Raspberry pi 3? And Sublime Text is compatible with the Raspberry pi 3 ?

Thanks,

It runs on linux, i would be shocked if you can’t get it working on a pi with possibly a little extra effort (like finding some unmet dependencies)

Raspberry Pi’s (even the 3) run on ARM processors and per this thread (and this response from jps in that thread) , ARM support is not likely.

That said, that was three years ago so maybe opinions changed in the interim.

I hadn’t considered… I stand corrected.
Well now we know, eh Romain?

It’s not coming. There is no way to do it yourself.

I was looking for a javascript-apt code editor for quick editing of a raspberry powered nodejs thing
Found this guy to have a working instance https://taoofmac.com/space/blog/2015/02/27/2210

Long config though, so I’m still looking

On the Raspberry Pi (Raspbian OS) I have been using the lightweight editor/IDE called “Geany”. It is by no means Sublime Text but fine just the same. You can install it from the standard package sources. Do check it out.

I use geany on the pi 3 as well. It’s no Sublime, but it gets the job done.

You could give VisualStudio code a go. https://code.headmelted.com/

There are couple of other alternaives:

  1. Consider Scite - a bit of a fiddle to get fonts and look as you’d like, Syntax highlighting and project management is basic but it’s fast and has a small footprint

  2. Export a shared drive using Samba and edit using ST3 from a box with a supported OS. This is the route I adopted eventually and it works very nicely. Edit in Sublime, flip to VNC and refresh.

Why not Vim?

Does Vim support all the syntax highlighting that SublimeText has, and more importantly can it be used by “normal” people?

Sublime Text should work very well on ARM using ExaGear Desktop.

Probably even more.
“normal people”?, no idea… I’m not normal :space_invader

I have a sublime text licence, and would be willing to buy another one for what I expect to become my fleet of makerbots.
When I’ve highlignted sublime text 3 to the new hires at my big data consulting firm, the ability to use ST3 cross platform is a big plus. Did not know there was a raspberry sized hole in my recommendation.

hey guys, I know this messages is now 3 years late, but I’ve found a great “emulator” for Sublim Text.
so, first, you go on a terminal panel and copy/paste this command :slight_smile:
git clone https://github.com/Botspot/pi-apps ~/pi-apps/install. Wait until download. After, go in the application (Menu > Tools > Pi Apps) and go in “Editors”.
Sublim Text is the last one. Click, download it and enjoy !

ps:sorry if I did some faults. I’m French, and I’ve got only 12 years old :confused:

For the record, there are currently test versions of ARM64 builds of Sublime for Linux available in the Discord for licensed users of Sublime (see the pinned post in the forum for the link to the Discord).
