Keep forgetting the names of packages I like to install when setting up Sublime Text 2. Or that I should install them to begin with. So here’s a note to self on packages I should install whenever I reinstall this fantastic editor. And a note to you if you use the editor and didn’t know such helpful packages existed.
- Package Control
The package that adds a package manager to the editor. After that is installed, simply press Ctrl+Shift+p, bring up Install Package by typing “ip”, and hit enter. You can then search for packages and install them super easy.
- File Rename
Keyboard only renaming of files from within ST.
For copying syntax highlighted code either as HTML or as RTF. Nice for pasting code into emails, documents, etc.
- Indent XML
For… indenting XML. Been very helpful for cleaning up messy SOAP requests from logs, etc.
For syntax highlighting of LESS files
- Markdown Preview
For quick preview of markdown files in the browser
- Text Pastry
For fun pasting madness. You can for example paste in sequences of numbers. E.g. Ctrl+Alt+n and then
i20, will paste integers starting at 20 in all your cursors.
