It was about 8 months ago that I made the switch and purchased Sublime Text 2, the popular source code editing software. Let's be honest, we (front-end developers) are always looking for a way to increase the productivity of our workflow. ST2 (Sublime Text 2) has significantly done just that for my daily routine. I am writing this article to compile some of the best articles written about ST2 tips & tricks.
What Can Sublime Text Do?
If you really want to know what ST2 can do you need to stop reading this post and head on over to NetTuts where Jeffrey Way did an AMAZING course called Perfect Workflow in Sublime Text 2. If this course does not make you want to raid the Sublime Text website and purchase as many copies of ST2 as humanly possible then nothing will. Way's course will make you wonder why you can't do the things he's doing as quickly as he's doing them.
