This post is regarding years of issues I have had as an software engineer non-expert on IDEs. Using Sublime since version 2 basically…
I had difficulty finding a right autocomplete (basic function of IDE) as well as other related things related to
Python. The idea is that after you install Sublime Text, you either follow a tutorial/blog/youtube to setup your environment.
Now that may have been simple 5 years ago but now you got 10 different packages which don’t work in certain aspects, basically you already have to know what you are doing. Let me tell you how it’s done everywhere else, I either install Python and it offers me all of this, linting, autocompletion … and then I customize it if I want or simply I get all of this with installation since it’s still lightweight and doesn’t require much space.
It’s a bit stupid, what does server side language mean, I still don’t know but this LSP thing works and its actually good… here are the steps:
Remove JEDI or whatever other else you have if you still have issues also check to see that your language is set to Python or do
CTRL + SHIFT + P >
Set Syntax: Python
It’s stupid that there’s no guide for a Python Developer. Like I’ve worked for companies and myself always used Sublime Text and I didn’t know this.
You know how simple this is in other IDEs, you either install Python extension or nothing at all. Please fix.
Include either a guide or a prebuilt set of packages, I don’t care that you are trying to keep it light this is dumb, I don’t like the elitism of Vim type users. Where you have to be an expert to use an editor, I am a software engineer not a Software IDE Configurator, I haven’t taken a course or done a tutorial, nor am I willing to, please consider this message when doing your business updates and talking to the managers.
Anyway hit me up on my email that you have if you want me to give you feedback I love Sublime and my Sublime people…
