  • Create & compile Apex Classes, Apex Trigger, Visualforce Pages, Visualforce Components
  • Create & Edit Lightning Components (v7 only)
  • Retrieve & compile other types of metadata
  • Run Apex test methods and visualize test successes/failures & coverage
  • Deploy metadata to other orgs
  • Apex Execute Anonymous
  • Create Apex Execution Overlay Actions "checkpoints" (tooling API)
  • Stream Apex Logs to your local filesystem
  • Apex & Visualforce Code Assist

Installing the MavensMate for Sublime Text package

  1. Open Sublime Text 3
  2. Run Package Control: Install Package command
  3. Search for MavensMate
  4. Hit Enter


In order to get started using MavensMate for Sublime Text, you should be aware of a few important settings. MavensMate for Sublime Text settings follow the Sublime Text convention of providing default settings in JSON format that can be overwritten via a user settings file. To view MavensMate default and user settings, use the MavensMate menu in the top menu bar: MavensMate > Settings.

NEW IN v7: Most settings formerly found within Sublime Text have been moved to the "Global Settings" which can be found within mavensmate-app. To access/update those settings, use the MavensMate menu in Sublime Text and select Settings > Global Settings.

Important Settings

Workspaces (mm_workspace)

You must configure the mm_workspace setting before creating a new MavensMate project. You may set mm_workspace to a single path on your local filesystem or an array of paths.

Array of workspaces
"mm_workspace" : [
Single workspace
"mm_workspace" : "/Users/darylshaber/Desktop/my-cool-folder",

Windows users: You must use escaped backslashes to set your workspaces:

"mm_workspace" : [

Salesforce API Version (mm_api_version)

Use mm_api_version to set your desired API version. Please note, it should be set to a single decimal place:

"mm_api_version" : "33.0",
"mm_api_version" : 33,


Updates to the plugin are handled automatically by Package Control. Updates can be applied manually by replacing the MavensMate directory in your Sublime Text Packages directory.
