Mac OS X two instances of Sublime Text

Mac OS X two instances of Sublime Text

Postby buriy on Mon Jan 21, 2013 1:35 pm

Hi all!

Could you please help me to set up 2 instances of Sublime Text 2 running at the same time on Mac OS X.
I would like to use one for coding, and another one for tasks (using https://github.com/aziz/PlainTasks )
Like this: http://cl.ly/image/2s1z1z0D3x1L

For now I copied the Sublime Text 2 folder using applications, changed icon, but on reboot, they both open the same set of windows and files, and plugin configuration also seems to be shared...
How do I fix that?

You can open two instances using "open -n", but they'll still share the same plugins etc.

Thanks, nice shortcut, but I don't want a new application each time, just want 2 copies working side by side like if they were completely different applications.
Hm, even if they don't share installation directory, they still share their "Data Directory".

(https://github.com/SublimeText/Unoffici ... -directory)
The Data Directory

Sublime Text 2 stores nearly all of the interesting files for users under the data directory. This is a platform-dependent location:

Windows: %APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2
OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2
Linux: ~/.Sublime Text 2
Portable Installation: Sublime Text 2/Data

If I could change this location on my mac, I'll get my problem solved.
Any ideas?
