Erb html templates uses Paul Battley's htmlbeautifier gem. This (as well as rubygems) is assumed to be installed as seen by the ruby interpreter. Note that if you beautify an erb file but
htmlbeautifier is not found, the error message is 'check your ruby interpreter settings', do not be misled.
If an error is encountered while processing the file, Python receives an empty string and the following message is displayed but may have nothing to do with your Ruby settings.

On windows, set Preferences -> Package Settings -> BeautifyRuby -> Settings Default

rvm, then simply set

If you are using ruby on the Windows Subsystem for Linux, use:
"ruby": "wsl ruby"

By default, Sublime does not translate tabs to spaces. If you wish to use tabs you will not need to change your settings. If you wish to use spaces, add the following setting.
Or if you wish to force the use of tabs use:
tab_size is set to 4. Override this setting to change the number of spaces to use when using spaces instead of tabs.
ctrl + cmd + k on OS X, or ctrl + alt + k on Windows
