Your source code editor is essentially a specialized text editor, designed specifically for working with code files.
You’ll be using your source code editor — with Sublime Text being my favorite source code editor, by far — to work with all of your application’s code files for the entire course, so it’s a good idea to get a feel for it now.
Here are a few things to try out on your own to get some more practice with it.
Try out these exercises
- In the
Codefolder in your home folder, create a new “sublime-text-practice” folder. Do this using the command line for extra practice!
- Open up that new “sublime-text-practice” folder in Sublime Text.
- Create a new “test.html” file within the “sublime-text-practice folder from within Sublime Text.
- Save your current window as a new Sublime Text Project.
- Now: 1) close the Sublime Text window; and 2) quit Sublime Text.
