Important File Locations

Configuration files can be modified directly in sublime via preferences › settings.

Generally, you should never have to modify file directly; you can copy and paste directly with the menu settings.


Copy and paste into user preferences preferences › settings.

Automatically Installing Packages

Sublime will automatically keep packages up to date if they are listed as Installed. You can use this to automatically installed Package Control, as well as packages on a fresh installation. Some recommended packages are here.

Download the package control binary and add installed packages.

cp Package\ Control.sublime-settings <sublime config>/Packages/User

Download package control settings file.

Upon startup of sublime, it will automatically install the missing packages now listed in your installed packages.
