  • (2021-02-26) Lisa Nolte: I love this extension and use it quite a lot. We have lots of web applications where Markdown syntax is recognized and in combination with SublimeText it's a breeze to write documentation 😉 Also when documenting code snippets in issue tickets etc. it's really nice to have a powerful text editor integrated into the workflow.

  • (2020-12-17) Christopher Small: It's a nice idea, but it's a bit of a hassle to have to open up a dedicated editor process. I remember an older plugin for Firefox (IIRC) that opened up your system editor for you, which was much more convenient, even if it didn't support bidirectional editing. I use vim, and I found it easy for the vim process to seize/lock up. I've found wasavi much more convenient, and it works much better than I expected. It's nice to have something that opens it regular vim, but not at the cost of inconvience and buggy processes.

  • (2017-02-02, v:1.2.4) Alexei Kopylov: No synchronization between browser and Sublime
    I've installed GhostText with Sublime, but when I click on the Ghost bottom, I do see the Sublime editor open, but there is no synchronization: I don't see the text in the Sublime editor, and when I type in the editor, I don't see it in browser.
