Package Control in Sublime Text 3

Re: Package Control in Sublime Text 3

I followed the instructions posted in this thread on Windows XP and I tried everything for git commands and there is definitely something missing.

I want to learn GIT at the command line, but the CD to the directory fails, and the 1st step doesn't work either which is to type git bash and launch the program that comes up.

I've found bash.exe in the git install folder, but still the clone fails.

Can anyone help, I would like to learn this process as opposed to just copying it from the download dir.

Sure, I'm not any sort of coder, but I need the tools I need, and I am quite dogged in hunting them down so I can drag them home and cook them properly. Heck, I killed and dragged home the ST3 version of BufferScroll, all on my own :) Actually, it wasn't that I couldn't figure this out, its just that I came to the forum first for quick help and got it. The thing that apparently a non-coder didn't know, the secret handshake, as it were was that I needed another piece of software to talk to github, when I had just been assuming I could use ST3 to carry out whatever operations were needed.

If you need tools that work, I would recommend sticking with ST2 for now. Pretty much everything works there.

I don't want to sound rude, but what is stopping you uninstalling sublime text 3 and use sublime text 2? Especially if you have a tight deadline?

But just to answer your question, you just need to follow wbond's instructions:
http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/packa ... lation#ST3

Also if you already have plugins installed you have in mind, please bear in mind that not all plugins support ST3 yet. Wbond is maintaining a list of what is working / needs extra step to make it work / and not working.

  • Start the program Applications > Utilities > Terminal
  • Type cd and a space in the Terminal window
  • Switch to Sublime Text and select Preferences > Browse Packages...
  • Drag the Packages folder from the Finder window to the Terminal window
  • Press return
  • Follow the last three steps given on the installation page linked above.

On Windows:

Git is not installed by default on Windows, so if you don't have it you either need to install yourself from here: http://msysgit.github.io
Or you can download the ST3 branch separately from here: https://github.com/wbond/sublime_packag ... ython3.zip

If you download a zip archive, you need to repeat that every time there has been changes. Then:

  • Select Run... from the Start menu and type cmd in the text field
  • The other steps are the same as above

Hope that helps

Well, this is embarrassing. I'm a MacHead, totally lost in this Git-thingy, but happily hand coding CSS and HTML in Sublime Text 3 (on my work Windows 7 machine). I followed the above excellent instructions, but came a cropper with:

- Follow the last three steps given on the installation page linked above.

Assuming - as I did - that those three steps are the following FOUR steps for ST3:

cd Packages/
git clone https://github.com/wbond/sublime_package_control.git "Package Control"
cd "Package Control"
git checkout python3

Well, I'm sorry to report that Git Bash throws an error with this line:
git clone https://github.com/wbond/sublime_package_control.git "Package Control"
Failed connect to github.com:443; No error

Yup, total newbie here - got to persevere though.

So I still can't install Package Control, which means I still can't install Browser Refresh for Sublime Text package - which is how all of this started this morning in the first place [slaps forehead].

Your advice would be appreciated. That is, after you guys have picked yourselves up from the floor and the laughter has subsided ;-)
