I’d decided to try Sublime out for work to see how it compared to TextMate… and thus some degree of git integration was required. Given that it’s been out since January, I was surprised that there wasn’t already a solid git plugin.
I did find this one, admittedly, but I decided that I didn’t like how it fit in with Sublime. It’s built around menus and keybinds, whereas I felt that setting everything up as commands in the palette and hooking as much stuff as I could into the fuzzy search was the way to go.
Working on the plugin was a good exercise in getting me used to Sublime. I’m fairly sold on it as a result. It’s philosophically somewhat similar to TextMate, but with some of TextMate’s rough edges smoothed out.
(Short rant: if the recently announced TextMate2 alpha doesn’t get rid of the single-character undo buffer… I don’t know what I’ll do. It’s certainly the biggest single complaint I have about TextMate nowadays.)
