Confessions of a Sublime Text-aholic

It’s true. I’m a Sublime Text addict. It’s by far my favorite development tool. End of story!

Just to illustrate, earlier this week, a member of our development team asked how to quickly remove all empty lines from a very large text file. I quickly came up with the following:

  1. Press CTRL-F.
  2. Enable regular expressions (the button entirely in the bottom-left corner).
  3. Search for ^\s*$
  4. Press ALT-ENTER (click on the “Find all” button).
  5. Hit the backspace button.
  6. Done!
  7. Be merry …

Don’t just take my word for it. Just start using it!
