Sublime Text 2/3 – Packages And Shortcuts


I always start with the one package that allow to stay in sublime and improve it quickly:

Next on the line is the option to make our editor a bit more friendly with: SublimeCodeIntel It’s A full-featured code intelligence and smart autocomplete engine for Sublime Text. Few of the technologies that are supported:
JavaScript, SCSS, Python, HTML, Ruby, Python3, XML, HTML5, Perl, CSS, Node.js, Tcl, TemplateToolkit and (of course) PHP.
From here there are many options.
Few the I’ve found useful:

  • Git
  • Emmet
  • Terminal
  • ColorPicker
  • SublimeREPL
  • LiveReload – Make your life easier with this live reload ability. It will save you a lot of clicks on the ‘reload’ button (or cmd+r).
  • MarkdownPreview – I love markdown and this one is making me more productive with it.
  • JSLint – If you are writing some javascript, this one is a must.
  • DocBlockr – Create a new documentation block with a quick click. And yes, it will extract that function’s parameter information and pre-fill it in your documentation block. nice, no?
  • Soda Theme – just to keep up with the cool kids on the block.

Client-side libraries

  • Foundation – A collection of snippets to build Foundation5 framework components such as the Buttons, Tabs, and Navigation.
  • Bootstrap 3 – If you prefer Bootstrap, try this.
  • jQuery Mobile – A collection of snippets to build jQuery Mobile components and layouts.
  • HTML5 Boilerplate – this snippet lets you create HTML5 Boilerplate documents in a snap.

Specific server-side technologies support

PHP – Sublime PHP Companion and you might want to try SublimeAllAutocomplete as well because of its ability to register the names of all symbols (functions, classes, variables etc’). Also, you need a good SublimeLinter PHP – just to make sure your code is in best readable way.

For NodeJS – Check these settings.

    Thank you for you post.
    I have many suggestions.
    1. Command edit-command-plate plugin. It let you adding new “commands” to sublime. Useful for automation of things.
    2. Download Sublime Portable. And put in you Google Drive folder. This way you can backup everything and use same Sublime settings and many machines.
    3. SFTP plugin works great.
