My Sublime Text setup

It's obvious that almost all web developer and front-end developers use Sublime Text. Every one has there own use case and reasons for using ST, some might say its clear, fast and slim some might say its beautiful, highly customizable and slick. I want to share my ST settings and plugins that I use as a front-end developer.

Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code markup and prose You'll love the slick user interface extraordinary features and amazing performance

Some of the main features of ST that I believe are Beautiful User Interface, Awesome Editing, Customization, Automation.

Sublime Text Features

First off, I want to share my ST User settings; You can see the settings below or you can get it from this gist.

   "color_scheme":"Packages/Color Scheme - Default/Twilight.tmTheme",


You can make this as your settings just by copying and pasting this to your User - Settings.

Now as I said before, ST is highly customized there are many plugins that you can do almost every thing you want just by installing plugin. Here are some plugins that I use.

Package Control

Package Control is one of my favorite plugins, it allows users to manage packages very easily, with one shortcut you have access to a long list of plugins available to install and update is automatically handled. To install it open the console View → Show Console or Ctrl + `, then paste the following code :

import urllib.request,os,hashlib;
h = '7183a2d3e96f11eeadd761d777e62404e330c659d4bb41d3bdf022e94cab3cd0'
pf = 'Package Control.sublime-package'
ipp = sublime.installed_packages_path()
urllib.request.install_opener( urllib.request.build_opener( urllib.request.ProxyHandler()) )
by = urllib.request.urlopen( '' + pf.replace(' ', '%20')).read()
dh = hashlib.sha256(by).hexdigest()
print('Error validating download (got %s instead of %s), please try manual install' % (dh, h))
if dh != h else open(os.path.join( ipp, pf), 'wb' ).write(by)
