Whats a good way to learn features and benefits of ST2

Whats a good way to learn features and benefits of ST2

Postby PixelBender21 on Wed Nov 28, 2012 11:55 pm

I am new to this forum. I have heard a lot of good things about ST2. One thing I like is that you can set up
multiple columns when working on your code.

I was wondering what are some of the features of using Sublime Text 2, and also some other features that
are not available on other Text Editors?

Where is a good place to learn more about using ST2?

What are some of the benefits of these features?

Thanks!

Jeffrey Way offers a good Getting Started guide: http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/tools ... nd-tricks/

For more depth I recommend the unofficial docs: http://docs.sublimetext.info/

I've been collecting useful links on my wiki as I come across them, as well as blogging about Sublime a bit myself:

It's a very good idea to read through the following files available in Packages > Default >

  • Preferences.sublime-settings
  • Default (your OS).sublime-keymap
  • and maybe *.sublime-menu

A lot of functionality is only "documented" in these files.

There are many plugins (called "packages") which enhance and extend Sublime. Although it's very easy to try out new plugins (via Package Control), I'd recommend removing or disabling what you don't use routinely, to maintain Sublime lean and fast. There's a nice list of some of the most popular plugins here: https://github.com/mrmartineau/SublimeTextSetup

Hope this helps,
Alex
