Do you love Sublime Text? Looking for a color scheme that looks good in lots of languages and takes advantage of as many scopes as possible? Check out my Neon Color Scheme, available through Package Control. Also works great in TextMate.

Also, check out Python Improved, a better, updated Python .tmLanguage syntax definition for Sublime and TextMate. Fixes lots of bugs with the existing syntax, and adds new scopes for IPython, Django, Python 3 support, and much more. Use Neon for customized syntax highlighting, or modify your favorite color scheme.


Looking for a great Linux hosting provider geared toward developers with shell access, a bunch of ready-to-deploy apps, and awesome tech support? Check out WebFaction, my favorite alternative to the big hosting beasts. They run CentOS 6 x64, have datacenters around the world, and have a full suite of regularly-updated development and deployment tools. And did I mention they're cheap? My basic plan with 512MB RAM, 100GB disk, and 600 GB bandwidth/month is just US$8.50/mo! (if you prepay for a full year - US$102). Check out all these other features:

  • Full control over shell access (multi-user capability), email, and DNS.
  • Python, Ruby/Rails, PHP, Java, Perl, shell scripts...
  • Ability to install whatever software tools you need, and execute long-running processes.
  • nginx and Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MongoDB...
  • "One-click" (actually, several clicks and some typing) installers for a whole bunch (and different versions) of popular applications like Django, Rails, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and more.
  • and a ton of other stuff.

I honestly don't know of any other hosting provider that has a similar product, and if one exists I can't imagine it's as cheap. BTW, I don't work for them, I'm just a very satisfied customer.


Why Pigimal?

I sometimes call my guinea pig (also known as a cavy) "Pigimal", which is short for "Piggy Animal." Now you know.

comment Touchpad support for SublimeText 3
What exactly are you trying to do? You should be able to scroll using your touchpad. What other functions are you looking for?

comment How to decode text file with symbols like \uXXXX?
@LA_ since this is a case for custom parsing of the input, I doubt you'll find a pre-made plugin for it. However, since you've already found a Python solution for translating the file, implementing it in Sublime should be trivial.

comment How to decode text file with symbols like \uXXXX?
@LA_ yes, you can. Here is the ST3 API for your perusal. The reason I suggested a plugin is that there are certain things you can't do in the console, like for/if/while loops, function declarations, etc. - basically anything you can't do on one line.

comment How to decode text file with symbols like \uXXXX?
@LA_ Sublime Text 3 is built on top of Python 3.3, so all you need to do is paste each string into the console and it'll display the correct encoding. However, this isn't really feasible for a 10MB file, so a plugin would work better.

comment Change cursor color in sublime text?
@jdln You didn't indicate in your question you were trying to change the mouse cursor. You need to set that in your Windows configuration settings - Sublime has nothing to do with that.

comment Change default text editor to Sublime Text in Linux Mint
@Alexandre thanks for that, I'll update the answer. As an Ubuntu user, I've only worked with existing files, so I kinda missed that detail :)

What plugins do you have installed? It's possible one of them is adding the newline...

That will delete the whole line, not cut it to the clipboard.

comment Can't get codecs for mp4 on Ubuntu
Download 14.04 and do a fresh install. You'd have to go from 10 to 11 to 12 to 13 to 14 if you want to upgrade.

I ran this on a locked-down Win8.1 computer (work laptop) and it should be noted that Admin rights are NOT needed to extract .msi files.

This is actually the Find In Files dialog, not the global Find and Replace toolbar.

comment What is the hotkey to perform a replace in the Find in Files dialog?
Your question is still not very clear. Could you post an image showing what button you are trying to activate, and include in it some of the text you're searching and replacing?

comment Sublime Text can't find interpreters for SublimeREPL
@MattG - well, there's the Racket package from Package Control that adds a source.racket scope to your .rkt files - perhaps that might work?
