Subscribe so I can send you updates on new blog posts, videos, and Sublime Wizardry - Sublime Intervention else that I think you should know! When Sublime Text 3 was released I groaned along with many others. Why a new version? What are the incompatibilities? But most importantly: Will all my old packages that I know and love still work?? After attempting and succeeding in upgrading to ST3 Ken Griffin - Auf Wiedersehn Sweetheart / Half As Much (Shellac) trying to install all my old plugins I know, love, and use daily I can safely say: the old packages work!
They work! And it's glorious! There is a but here: the process King Of My Castle - Various - Die Hit-Giganten - Dancefloor Hits installing some plug-ins is not as plug and play as it is for Sublime Text 2.
There is a certain amount of 'getting your hands dirty' work required - namely using git to check out the ST3 compatible branch.
Aside from that you'll leave the process without any stains on your newly washed white shirt. After that's all squared away head over to the Sublime Text 3 download page and commence with the installation.
Each install to separate application names and 'Application Support' directories without needing any user intervention. Interestingly enough the application name for ST3 is 'Sublime Text'.
Seems Jon Skinner's gone back in time with this change. I could regurgitate those instructions here but I'd rather not muddy the internet with cloned instruction sets. If you have any issues with this part feel Sublime Wizardry - Sublime Intervention to ping me. Update: SublimeLinter has been updated to natively support Sublime Text 3. You can now easily install SublimeLinter straight from Package Control. If you want to use the Soda Theme Color Schemes follow the Sublime Wizardry - Sublime Intervention outlined exactly - just put them in your ST3 folder instead.
Aside from speed ST3 is the future of ST2 and it's better to get on the bus as it's going through the station and before it's out in the country somewhere remote and unattainable.
This metaphor went nowhere. Looking forward to hearing your successes in upgrading to ST3. I also can't wait for the whole package community to fully embrace ST3 support. Should happy any day now, right? Harry Wolff You can't escape my laugh. Blog RSS Archive. Contact Me Talks Uses hswolff Source.
