Background:

Text editors are programs developers write their code in. Though you might not have a text editor downloaded on your own computer, you’ve more or less used one. On Codecademy, we have a mock-text editor on most screens. It’s the area you write your code in – usually on the right side of the screen or in the top, center section.

While it’s possible to write code anywhere, the code-specific text editors – like the code editor you’ve used on Codecademy – do a couple really helpful things. These include:

  1. Highlighting syntax according to the language being written
  2. Indenting code automatically

This quick article walks you through the steps required to set-up Sublime Text, a hugely popular text editor (and a favorite of developers on the Codecademy Team). If you fall in love with Sublime Text (as millions of others have) don’t forget to buy it!

Open a new file. When you save it, assign to it the file extension of any programming language you’re familiar with. For instance, for JavaScript, save your file with a .js file extension. This will enable syntax-specific code highlighting and auto-indentation, like what you’re used to on Codecademy.
