Sublime Text is a popular text and source code editor somewhat similar to TextMate, available for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X.
The Sublime Text 3 is currently in beta. Webupd8 Team has made an installer script into PPA which automatically downloads the Sublime Text 3 archive from its website and installs it on Ubuntu. The PPA does not host any Sublime Text 3 files.
Install Sublime Text 3:
To get started, press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open a terminal window. When it opens, copy and paste below command into terminal and hit enter:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-3
