…in the vim space largely because it was the editor I was raised on. In recent times I followed the Textmate to Sublime migration too. For a time though I found myself in the Java community working with IBM's Application Developer and that's where I came to terms with what an IDE is.

When I started to explore RubyMotion and got sucked into the "What editors can I use next?" game, I dabbled with RubyMine and was a little surprised. IDEs for me in the …

Ditto for file switching ( Cmd+T in Sublime/ TextMate). There is no memory of the last file, so you can't hit the quick Cmd+T - Enter keystroke to switch between two files. You have to fuzzy-find from scratch each time— and the fuzzy-finder is extremely loose in its matching policy.

Middle-clicking does not close tabs.

Unless I haven't found it, no keyboard shortcuts to split windows or move windows between tab groups.

Finally, this one is probably a bug, but history support …

…I remember their demo videos and it seemed like the development world was about to change! I never would have guessed that come 2005, I'd be in love with something as simple and fancy-feature-less as TextMate.

8. Atom Editor will not just be a clone of Sublime Editor . Github has too clever a team for that objective.

What are you confident that Atom Editor will not be?

A quick blog post about things learned and accomplished in 2013 and areas of focus for 2014.

By writing them down I hope there's more chance of me actually following through.

New software/apps/tools for 2013

Some of these apps I had used before, but in 2013 I found myself becoming more reliant on them and working them into my daily routine.

Sublime for coding. Previously I was using TextMate.

iTerm 2 for terminal.

Inboard for design inspiration.

Optimizely for A/B testing.

For TextMate users, you can install the Avian Missing Bundle and add TM STRIP WHITESPACE ON SAVE = true to your .tm_properties file.

For Sublime users, set the ensure_newline_at_eof_on_save option to true .

…Textmate . It was a relatively painless transition but there was one thing that I used often in Textmate that wasn't available in Sublime Text, inserting, toggling and wrapping content in ERB tags.

Since adoption of Sublime Text was relatively new at the time, I decided to scratch my own itch and write a plugin in Python for Sublime Text. After a few of days, I released SublimeERB on Github. There was one thing that I never did get around to and that …

…took the program than what came before it. I'd estimate that about 90% of what TextMate ever needed to do, you could do with bundles. But the cost to find that last 10%, it was brutal.

Eventually, I bumped up against this limitation with TextMate. I wanted split windows, I wanted full-screen modes, I wanted better crags integration. No one could add those (when TextMate wasn't open source, circa 2010) because they required writing Objective-C rather than using TextMate's …
