Sublime Text

I’ve been using Sublime Text  for a while now. I really am enjoying this text editor. I do all programing/coding in Sublime Text that I don’t do in Xcode or at the Command Line.I’ve switched from using Coda which is also a great text editor too. I actually still use it for some coding work here and there. Why I like Sublime Text is because of the time it takes to start up. It’s  extremely fast and has become my go to editor when needing to edit something really quickly.
