Developing an application is not easy. So today I will teach you how to install Sublime Text on OpenSUSE 15.2 / 15.1. So you will have a powerful editor ready to use.
Sublime Text is well known in the world of web development. It is a powerful text editor that is widely used to develop applications in many languages. However, its main strength is in the web environment where it shows its main strength. On the other hand, it is a fairly lightweight, customizable, and extensible editor. It has everything you need to make coding a faster process like syntax highlighting, multiple selections, and a command palette.
Therefore, many users need to install it on their main Linux distribution. In this case, OpenSUSE 15.2 / 15.1 is one of the safest options to start developing any application.
Install Sublime Text on OpenSUSE 15.2 / 15.1
Sublime Text is an application that is cross-platform. That is to say, not only we will be able to install it in many Linux distributions but also in Windows or macOS. Then it is an application that is available to many people thus strengthening community support. In the same way, Sublime Text has its own repository for OpenSUSE to keep up to date.
So the first step is to open a terminal and add the GPG key for the repository.
:~$ sudo rpm -v --import https://download.sublimetext.com/sublimehq-rpm-pub.gpg
Then, once we have done the previous thing, it is necessary to choose the software channel that we deem to use. There is the Dev version where the latest version in development is hosted. It is new but can be unstable. On the other hand, the Stable channel provides only versions that are considered stable by the development team. It is the most sensible decision, so we will use this one.
:~$ sudo zypper addrepo -g -f https://download.sublimetext.com/rpm/stable/x86_64/sublime-text.repo Adding repository 'Sublime Text - x86_64 - Stable' .......................................................................................................................................[done] Repository 'Sublime Text - x86_64 - Stable' successfully added URI : https://download.sublimetext.com/rpm/stable/x86_64 Enabled : Yes GPG Check : Yes Autorefresh : Yes Priority : 99 (default priority)
Then you can install Sublime Text on OpenSUSE 15.2 / 15.1.
:~$ sudo zypper install sublime-text
Now, you can launch from the main menu.
So, enjoy it. Remember that Sublime Text has a brother who takes care of GIT. So, you can read our post about Sublime Merge.
