Sublime Text 2 environment for Magento development
Recently I got a new job (my first real one, actually), and it is revolving around PHP, i.e. Magento development. Before my first day at the job, I was wondering what kind of IDE or text editor should I use and what kind of one my future co-workers use. I emailed them and the response was just as I expected it to be: “full fledged IDEs like eclipse, netbeans or phpStorm”. I have had a lot of previous experience with those environments, mostly doing Java programming, and I was aware of all the bloat they bring. They were slow most of the time, they were laggy and pretty much uneasy to work with. Sure, that was the case on my own machine which is not really a “state of the art”, and I am sure they perform better on more powerful computers.
