How to install packages/extensions/plugins for Sublime Text 2?


Formerly, I was using Coda. It was a nice editor for me. But, I left working with Coda after the last updates. I couldn’t be comfortable with the new UI design. So, I started searching a new editor and came across with Sublime Text 2. I think, it is one of the best code editors that I’ve ever used in terms of app launching speed, smart UI design (actually it’s so minimal, the magic is the key bindings) and opens with your last projects and etc…

I have been working with Sublime Text 2 for two years nearly. After some time, I need to enhance it to save much more time while I’m coding. There will be another post about extension / plugins which I use with Sublime Text 2 in the future by the way…

Anyways, I mean if you’re looking for a new code editor, suggest you to check Sublime Text. It supports every language, scripts that I know.

1- Download the package/plugin/extension (whatever you say)

2- Unzip it as usual

3- Open Sublime Text 2 and navigate to Sublime Text 2 >Preferences > Browse Packages…
