Sublime Text is one of the best text or code editor that you can have in Linux as it supports different programming languages and markup languages. There’s a list of features that you can check from the Sublime Text official website, one of my favorites is the python-based plugin API and “Goto Anything” feature.
The only downfall I find is Sublime Text may be downloaded and evaluated for free, however a license must be purchased for continued use.

Installing Sublime Text ver.3 in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS can be done in just 3 steps. As it is not available in Ubuntu Software Center, need to add first the repository before installing it.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sublime-text-installer

Type “subl” to launch Sublime Text

tux@freelinux:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/sublime-text-3
