I tried two times in past years to install eclipse and failed both times. I've just been working in Notepad++, using Purple Bug for console.
We had similar experiences and issues with the eclipse plugin as well. This motivated us to make our own tooling.
They are all open source so, I encourage you guys to check them out
https://github.com/willowtreeapps/wist - is a linter for brightscript
https://github.com/willowtreeapps/hinoki/ - is a language server for brightscript
https://github.com/willowtreeapps/atom-ide-brightscript - is an atom plugin front end
https://github.com/willowtreeapps/ukor - is a build tool with support for product flavors
We have a VSCode frontend coming soon as well.
I imagine it wouldn't be a lot of effort to add support for something like sublime.
I'm one of the devs on the project if anyone has any questions.
