I have the following build script for my JavaScript files in Sublime Text 3.

  "shell_cmd": "node --harmony --use-strict --harmony_generators $file"

The problem is that when node returns an error, for some reason Sublime will spew out the path, which does not line-wrap, and pollutes the output.

console.log(b); // ReferenceError: a is not defined
ReferenceError: b is not defined

How can I ask Sublime to not output the path?

I think this is just part of the standard error/debugging output. I don't know of any way to disable it through options or build flags, though... – MattDMo Jul 9 '13 at 16:03

A bit of a hack, but the following worked for me. Turns out you can override code in some of the default packages, including the code responsible for the path output:

  1. Go to C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 3\Packages
  2. Extract Default.sublime-package (it's actually a zip file) and get the file (don't leave the extracted folder hanging around in the directory)
  3. Create the directory Default under C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 3\Packages, and place into it
  4. Open, and comment out (place # at the beginning of the line) the following line, at line 245 for me

    self.append_string(proc, self.debug_text)

  5. Restart Sublime Text
