Essential Packages

i. Package Control

By Will Bond

A full-featured package manager that helps discovering, installing, updating and removing packages for Sublime Text 2. It features an automatic upgrader and supports GitHub, BitBucket and a full channel/repository system.

Package Control Installation

Installation is through the Sublime Text 2 console. This is accessed via the ctrl+` shortcut. Once open, paste the following command into the console:

import urllib2,os; pf='Package Control.sublime-package'; ipp=sublime.installed_packages_path(); os.makedirs(ipp) if not os.path.exists(ipp) else None; urllib2.install_opener(urllib2.build_opener(urllib2.ProxyHandler())); open(os.path.join(ipp,pf),'wb').write(urllib2.urlopen('http://sublime.wbond.net/'+pf.replace(' ','%20')).read()); print 'Please restart Sublime Text to finish installation'

Install a package with Package Control

Bring up the Command palette by pressing super+shift+p (super = cmd on Mac or ctrl on PC/Linux), start typing 'install' & hit enter when 'Package Control: Install Package' is highlighted. A quick-panel (like Goto Anything) will appear listing all available packages. Start typing the name of the package you wish to install, and then select it. Package Control will download the package file and install the package into the running instance of Sublime Text 2. You can look at the status area at the bottom of the editor for status updates.

Other Package Control functions

You can use Package Control to manage your packages, some of the most common action you will do is to install, disable, upgrade & remove packages. To do any of them, bring up the Command palette prompt & type whichever command you want. The rest should be self-explanitory.

Install/Browse more packages

Will Bond has also created a directory of community-created packages that you can search/browse. Check it out at http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/community

Batch install packages

To batch install other packages, a Package Control.sublime-settings file needs to be placed into the Packages/User/ folder. Inside of the settings file should be a JSON object with the key "installed_packages" that references a list of package names. When Package Control starts, if any of those packages are not present, the will be automatically downloaded and installed. Here is an example: http://pastebin.com/NLEavL1K. I have already created one that includes all the 'Essential Packages' here (I thought it better to only include these in case people did not need the front-emd specific templates).

I hope to get a build install script created to automate this process, if you are interested in helping out, please see this issue: https://github.com/mrmartineau/SublimeTextSetup/issues/3

ii. ZenCoding

By Nicholas Dudfield - Install through Package Control

Zen Coding uses a specific syntax in order to expand small snippets of code, similar to CSS selectors, into full-fledged HTML code.

Settings

I have modified the default settings so I have duplicated the zen-coding.sublime-settings file, moved it to my User directory & amended it so that "auto_id_class" is set to true instead of false. This setting enables you to automatically add id="" when a # is added with a tag. View/Download my settings

this:
<div #></div>

becomes this:
<div id=""></div>

iii. SublimeLinter

By Germán M. Bravo - Install through Package Control
