My text editor of choice is Sublime Text but right out of the box, it does not include
copy filename or
copy file path in the sidebar (both of which I use constantly). Seems that whenever I install it on a new machine (which I just did) I forget how to install the
Package Control package, which offers such goodies. Therefore, I thought I would park the instructions here for your--and more importantly, my--convenience.
It's pretty easy...
- In Sublime Text, type
ctrl+`to access the console
- Copy the code below, paste it in the console and hit return
- Restart Sublime Text
import urllib2,os; pf='Package Control.sublime-package'; ipp=sublime.installed\_packages\_path(); os.makedirs(ipp) if not os.path.exists(ipp) else None; urllib2.install\_opener(urllib2.build\_opener(urllib2.ProxyHandler())); open(os.path.join(ipp,pf),'wb').write(urllib2.urlopen('http://sublime.wbond.net/'+pf.replace(' ','%20')).read()); print('Please restart Sublime Text to finish installation')
Now, when right/ctrl-clicking a file or files in Sublime Text's sidebar, you should see a wealth of options including
If for some reason this fails to work, you can download and install manually with the instructions here...
Now that you have Package Control installed, use it by typing shift-ctrl-p. You can then, as you might imagine, control Sublime packages. Eg. install, remove, etc.... My two must-haves are: SideBarEnhancements and All Complete. To install them:
- Click shift-ctrl-p
- Start typing "install" and select
Package Control: Install Package
- A package prompt appears; start typing the package name, eg. All Auto Complete
That's it! Just repeat these steps for each package you'd like to install.
