Write more code in Symfony2 with that nine simple questions

I was kind a skeptic about moving from heavy weight IDE(eclipse like) to Sublime. But damn sublime is damn quick. Sublime is not a fork of Vim. With few plugins you can keep your old flow. With another few more you can optimize it.

I did this and two months ago and still my eclipse icon is covered with dust.


So there are eight questions to ask yourself:

Q: Want to install anything?

A: Install Package Control

Q: Want to avoid typos and syntax errors?

A: Install SublimeLint

Q: Want to remember about documentation

A: Install DocBlockr

Q: Want to write html & twig faster?

A: Install Emmet

Q: Want to update composer from your sidebar?

A: Install Composer

Q: Want to run your PHPUnit from your editor?

A: Install PHPUnit

Q: Want to write with PHP-PSR-2?

A: Install PHP Code Sniffer

Q: Want to do more with less code?

A: Install following packages:

And the final one that you need to answer yourself.

Do you dare to move to sublime2?

Buy the freaking license.

Use the freaking PHP Coding standards

Sublime is not a fork of Vim

@vlakarados So can you explain why vim commands are working on sublime? It's not a direct fork. Vim isn't father but step-father for sure.

@emgiezet it's a plugin with VIM keybindings it's nothing to do with VIM environment. It's like viper for emacs or VsVim for Visual studio or Eclim for eclipse.

@ex00 You can add the 1 to 1 vim key bindings. But vim was the inspiration. Btw I removed the fork sentence. Thx.

@emgiezet yeah, it's just a pre-installed plugin, a great one, but it's not in the core

Vim commands in all those editors are emulated and limited. That means it will never work exactly the same as in vim. For an old vim user that's a no-go for a switch.

@jakubzalas there aren't any switch options for hardcore VIM users. I know that sublime to VIM is like going to McDonald's for salads.

You should mention about Soda theme, it provide much more comfortable work.

@emgiezet What about code completion? Can't find any plugins.

Codeintel is not so cool. Especially with MVC frameworks.

@emgiezet there is only one - Emacs. But mode editing in VIM is the fastest one
