int3h Fix Python 2/Sublime Text 2 support
7348deb prints out a debugging message if the OS isn't OS X.
However, we used the Python 3-style `print()` command to do so. Since
Sublime Text 2 uses Python 2, we add a bevy of `from __future__
import...` at the top of the Python file, so that we get Python
3 features in Python 2.

This should hopefully fix Python 2/Sublime Text 2 problems, but it is
untested. Feedback appreciated.

Fix Mac Path

On OS X, Sublime Text has its PATH set by launchctl, not by your shell1. Commands like make run by Sublime Text are then unable to find non-system binaries, including those installed by homebrew and MacPorts.

Fix Mac Path is a simple plugin for Sublime Text 2 and 3 which sets Sublime Text's PATH to that reported by your shell. Now, if you add homebrew's /usr/local/bin directory to your PATH in .bash_profile (or whatever other way you set your shell's PATH,) Sublime Text will inherit that PATH.

1: This isn't true if you launch Sublime Text from within your shell (e.g., with the subl command.)


Fix Mac Path is for Sublime Text 2 and 3 running on Mac OS X. (Other platforms don't suffer from the problem this plugin fixes, to my knowledge, so it isn't needed.)

The easiest way to get this is to use Package Control and search for "Fix Mac Path".

To manually install Fix Mac Path, run

git clone https://github.com/int3h/SublimeFixMacPath.git ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages/FixMacPath

for Sublime Text 2, or

git clone https://github.com/int3h/SublimeFixMacPath.git ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 3/Packages/FixMacPath

for Sublime Text 3.


You can optionally set the following option to your user preferences:

  • "additional_path_items": []

    An array of strings of locations you wish to add to Sublime Text's PATH, in addition to those pulled from your shell.

    For example, to add ~/Desktop and ~/bin to the shell's PATH in Sublime Text, you would use "additional_path_items": ["~/Desktop", "~/bin"].
