Fredrik Ehnbom wrote this tool (not yet fully completed), sublime text is his favorite Editor, and he gave sublime text wrote five plugins. But one thing he be afraid that it does not open. But his love for other text editors far from sublime text, so he decided to write an open-source alternative,Lime.

What is Lime?
I love the Sublime Text editor. I have created several plugins to make it even better. One thing that scares me though is that it is not open sourced and the pace of nightly releases have recently been anything but nightly, even now that version 3 is out in Beta.

There was a period of about 6 months after the Sublime Text 2 “stable“ version was released where pretty much nothing at all was communicated to the users about what to expect in the future, nor was there much support offered in the forums. People including myself were wondering if the product was dead and I personally wondered what would happen to all the bugs, crashes and annoyances that still existed in ST2. This lack of communication is a dealbreaker to me and I decided that I will not spend any more money on that product because of it.

As none of the other text editors I’ve tried come close to the love I had for Sublime Text, I decided I had to create my own.

The frontend(s) are not ready to replace your favourite editor, but the backend itself I believe isn’t too far away.
