A rendition of Vim's command-line mode for Sublime Text 2.


This whole package is distributed under the MIT license (see LICENSE.txt).


VintageEx aims at full cross-platform compatibility. Howerver, I cannot test under OS X, so patches and feedback are welcome.


Download the latest version, put it under Installed Packages and restart Sublime Text.

VintageEx doesn't replace Vintage: To use vi key bindings, you need to enable the Vintage package (shipped with Sublime Text and ignored by default).

VintageEx extends the vi-like functionality provided py Vintage by adding a command-line mode that tries to remain close to Vim's.

Also, because VintageEx uses commands in the Vintage package, this package must be under your Packages folder with that name. This is mostly important to keep in mind if you contribute code to Vintage and have deleted the original package.


To open the command line, press :.

VintageEx offers tab completion of top-level commands, so you can type a letter and press Tab to cycle through available commands.

To see the implemented commands, you can look through


These settings should be stored in your personal preferences (Packages/User/Preferences.sublime-settings).


The name of the shell through which commands should be executed (bash, ksh, etc.). If empty, the $SHELL variable will be read when a shell is needed.


The name of the preferred terminal emulator (gnome-terminal, xterm, etc.). If empty, the variables $COLORTERM and $TERM will be read in turn when a terminal is needed.


If you want to show your appreciation, you can tip me through Gittip: guillermooo.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
