Custom Commands

    "caption": "Build Prod",
    "command": "v",
    "args": {
        "cmd": "-prod ${module}",   // required (string)
        "output": true,             // optional (boolean)
  • cmd is required and in the example above will construct and execute v -prod "some/folder/path".
  • output is optional (defaults to true). If false, the output is not shown in the "V" window. This is useful for commands you intend to be silent (such as v fmt).

See Sublime Variables for full list, but some common ones are:

  • ${file} for the current file path.
  • ${file_path} for the directory the current file exists in (the module).
  • ${folder} for the project directory.


Note: Make sure you uninstall the package if it's already installed with "Package Control > Remove Package..."

Now clone the package locally:

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text/Packages
git clone
