CF Builder vs Sublime Text 2 Resources Comparison

Posted: May 15, 2013 in ColdFusion, Sublime Text
Tags: , ,

Now that I’ve got my Sublime Text 2 plugins all installed and configured to what I mostly prefer, here’s what both take up in terms of resources when first booted up:

CF Builder 2.0.1 185,420 K 525 MB
Sublime Text 2.0.1 47,232 K 20 MB + 67.5MB App Data

Also take into consideration that Sublime Text takes only a few seconds to start, which ColdFusion Builder takes around 1/2 minute.

Now if I could only get some better “IntelliSense” type support for CF like CFC introspection – that’d be awesome!

    Can you please share the plugins you have installed for a typical Web / CF development eviro? Thanks.

    Elipse takes 1.8 seconds to fully load on my ubuntu ssd laptop, however sublime text takes under .2 seconds, sublime text is just all round a better IDE, especially the package manager, there is just soo many useful plugins for it

      Wow Matt – I think you have a blazing system rocking there. There just needs to be an enhanced package discovery tool. They need to add ratings, feedback and categories I think.

    Sublime text is great, but it’s not an IDE. At a minimum Sublime Text would need built in debugging to even be in the same league as an IDE. I just don’t want your readers to think Sublime text is an IDE, because it is not. Their own description says it best –

  4. Paul says:

    It’s not a compiler either. More of a text editor on steroids, but not an IDE.

    Just trying to be technical, but at the end of the day if you can do everything you need within Sublime Text to build your project, I guess it’s an IDE:)
