According to the Package Control site, SublimeLinter is the 4th most popular plugin for Sublime Text, with 224K installs. That's an incredible number. Thank you to everyone!
We all want SublimeLinter to become fully compatible with Sublime Text 3, and we want it to be better supported. In moving to ST3 (and python 3), we decided to start from scratch with a new architecture based on the fantastic work of Ryan Hileman, author of sublimelint, that allows us to get the most out of both ST3 and python 3. And speaking of sublimelint, we plan to join forces with Ryan and merge sublimelint and SublimeLinter, so we can pool our resources.
To find out more about what you can expect from SublimeLinter3, read about it here: https://github.com/SublimeLinter/SublimeLinter3#sublimelinter3
To make all this happen any time soon, we need your help. I have lots of other projects that currently have a higher priority than SublimeLinter3. If you value SublimeLinter and want to see it running on ST3 sooner rather than later, please consider donating. If we can raise $3-5K, I'll move SublimeLinter3 to top of my priority list and finish it off within a week or two.
