It seems that Lime Text project has been abandoned. Please don’t use it anymore. Try these open source alternatives to Sublime Text in Linux.
Sublime Text is one of the best (if not best) text editor for programmers. Packed with numerous feature and great looking interface, Sublime is available for all three major desktop OS i.e. Windows, Mac and Linux.
But it is not that Sublime Text is perfect. There are bugs, crashes
You can easily install Sublime Text if you don’t care if it is not open source but some people surely don’t tolerate it.
All these issues also frustrated Fredrik Ehnbom and hence he started an Open Source project, Lime Text, on Github to make a new text editor which looks and works exactly the same way as Sublime Text. On the question of why he decided to “clone” an existing text editor, Frederic mentions:
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.
