/!\ Sublime Text is proprietary software.

Sublime Text is a text editor with native support for many programming and markup languages. Base functionality can be extended via third party plugins.

Installing Sublime Text

Using third-party repositories as recommended below is not supported by the Debian project and could break your system now or when you upgrade later. Use with caution at your own risk!

Sublime Text can be installed on Debian Stretch using package repositories provided by developers.

Add Sublime Text repository signing key to verify downloaded packages:

wget -qO - https://download.sublimetext.com/sublimehq-pub.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Create File with repository information in /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory.

For stable releases of Sublime Text:

sudo echo "deb https://download.sublimetext.com/ apt/stable/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sublime-text.list

For Unreleased, development versions:

sudo echo "deb https://download.sublimetext.com/ apt/dev/" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/sublime-text.list

Ensure that apt can handle HTTPS sources:

sudo apt install apt-transport-https

Update the list of available packages

sudo apt update

And install Sublime Text

sudo apt install sublime-text

Remote file editing with Sublime Text

In some scenarios Sublime Text fails to see files mounted via SFTP protocol with graphical file managers like Nautilus, Thunar, or Dolphin, and although files are visible throughout the system, they are inaccessible in Open file dialog. To fix the issue and enable remote file editing functionality in Sublime Text, install gvfs-backends and gvfs-fuse packages:

apt install gvfs-backends gvfs-fuse
