External dependencies (with modifications or not)

Dependencies, supported by Package control


The easiest way to install this is with Package Control.

  • If you just went and installed Package Control, you probably need to restart Sublime Text before doing this next bit.
  • Bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+p on OS X, Ctrl+Shift+p on Linux/Windows).
  • Select Package Control: Install Package (it'll take a few seconds)
  • Select Mediawiker when the list appears.

Package Control will automatically keep Mediawiker up to date with the latest version.


  • Note: Not all color schemes fully supports syntax highlighting scopes required by markup languages like Mediawiki or Markdown. On this moment, color schemes with better support are: Twilight, Sunburst, Eiffel. Also, Mediawiker package includes Twilight (Mediawiki), Eiffel (Mediawiki) and Mediawiker_Dark/Mediawiker_Light schemes with improved highlighting for mediawiki syntax.
  • Check plugin wiki for setup instructions.
  • Use Preferences / Package settings / Mediawiker / Settings for setup wiki connection and plugin options.
