sublime is a very cool text editor i like using, it comes with alot of features to make you a very productive developer. you can download for free. on the free version, every so often you will get a popup to purchase, so if you can deal with this, its ok. However, it can get annoying, for me, i just purchased a license, make it much easier to work with. If you find out that sublime is not for your, and alternative text editor is Visual Studio Code from Microsoft. Yeah! Microsoft has developed this very neat code editor and its free to download and very similar to sublime and there is a big community on it, I highly recommend it.
so lets get started, I will be installing sublime on an ubuntu linux machine. To do that we will use apt-get which comes pre-installed with ubuntu. so lets folllow these simple terminal commands:
Download a GPG key:
$ wget -qO - https://download.sublimetext.com/sublimehq-pub.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
This makes sure apt is set up to work with https sources:
$ sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https
Install the Stable Version
$ echo "deb https://download.sublimetext.com/ apt/stable/" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sublime-text.list
Update apt sources
$ sudo apt-get update
Install Sublime Text
$ sudo apt-get install sublime-text
That is it!
