I’ve recently converted my coding text editor to Sublime Text. This post is a reference for if I have to set it up again. The editor can be used on any OS and looks particularly nice on all of them. It’s also a Python program. (This post subject to updates, as I find nifty plugins)
Get it here: Sublime Text
Reference this blog post for common plugins and general tomfoolery.
HTML auto fill.

Make Sublime your default editor in Ubuntu.
