making the leap to sublime text 3

i’ve been holding back from taking the plunge into sublime text 3 because the plugin support for it has been slow to port over to 3’s new architecture, but, tonight, after a fit of frustration with some code, i decided i needed a distraction.

i took an inventory of what plugins i use and it turns out that the plugins i use have been ported over to be compatible with sublime text 3. there’s a great resource can i switch to sublime text 3 that will tell you what shape the plugins that you use are in.

the biggest change i see in my day to day life with sublime text is how sublimelinter works. they’ve completely revamped the way that plugin works. each linter is now a separate plugin that you need to install instead of being packaged together with the main sublimelinter plugin. what this enables which couldn’t happen was that you can run multiple linters for javascript at one time!

i love this because i run both jshint and gjslint on my code and have had to resort to hacks to be able to do this, but now i can do it all.
