My Sublime Text 3 Setup

I’ve been using Sublime Text for a few years and up until now I had stuck with version 2. I kept an eye on the v3 beta for a while and noticed that development was slow (previous update was 2013) and since all the packages I used were compatible with v2 I stuck with it.

Today I noticed some packages had just stopped working so I went to re-install them and noticed they didn’t support v2 anymore, I checked out the v3 release updates and noticed there had been a new release a little over a month ago so I decided to take the plunge and move across.

You can view My Sublime Text 2 Setup and the steps are pretty much the same except referencing version 3. I won’t go through them again instead I will just list what my setup now looks like.

My user settings looks like this:

"theme": "Spacegray Eighties.sublime-theme",
"color_scheme": "Packages/Theme - Spacegray/base16-eighties.dark.tmTheme",
"font_face": "Anonymous Pro",
"font_size": 16,
"tab_size": 2,
"auto_complete_commit_on_tab": true,
"caret_style": "solid",
"ensure_newline_at_eof_on_save": true,
"highlight_line": true,
"highlight_modified_tabs": true,
"create_window_at_startup": false,
"line_padding_bottom": 3,
"line_padding_top": 3,
"translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
"trim_trailing_white_space_on_save": true,
"wide_caret": true,
"word_wrap": true,
"file_exclude_patterns": [".DS_Store"],
"folder_exclude_patterns": ["bin", ".bundle", ".git", ".sass-cache", "tmp"],
"ignored_packages": ["Vintage"]


I move to Spacegray, I just like the overall look of it, especially the eighties variant of the theme.


I’m still not a huge fan of the default icon so I took a quick look on dribble for a replacement. I find it a good place to get all sorts of replacement icons.

I settled on this replacement by Cole Bemis.

Here is a list of packages I have installed (they are pretty much the same I just took the time to double check and update links to the v3 compatible versions):

Alignment – Dead-simple alignment of multi-line selections and multiple selections for Sublime Text.
BracketHighlighter – will highlight brackets (or defined bracket like start and end blocks) surrounding the cursor.
Emmet – a plugin which greatly improves HTML & CSS workflow.
MoveTab – Plugin for Sublime Text to move tabs around.
SublimeLinter – a plugin that supports “lint” programs (known as “linters”). SublimeLinter highlights lines of code the linter deems to contain (potential) errors.
GitGutter – A plugin to show an icon in the gutter area indicating whether a line has been inserted, modified or deleted.
SublimeCodeIntel – Code intelligence plugin.
DashDoc – provides integration of Dash into Sublime Text.
ColorHighlighter – a plugin which unobtrusively previews hexadecimal color values by underlaying the selected hex codes and also allows for a colour picker.
DocBlockr – A simple way to create doc blocks.

And that’s pretty much it.
