I would like to rename my project in sublime IDE. How do I do that?

I don't want to change the name of the folder, just project name.

Hope I'm clear.

  • For using Sublime as an IDE, you should read chromiun article about it so you can give yourself an Idea of it. If I understand what you want to do and you really created a project, you should edit the configuration JSON file: chromium.org/developers/sublime-text

I assume you mean the project name that appears in the window title bar.

The project name is based on the .sublime-project file's basename.

So for example when the project file name is Awesome Project Name.sublime-project then the project name is "Awesome Project Name".

Menu > Project > Save Project As...

  • Works like a charm. Just save using the desired project name and delete the old one.

Install plugin for Sublime Text 3 Project​Manager and you have option to rename project.

enter image description here


To rename an existing project in Sublime:

  1. open the project you want to rename via Open Project or Switch Project.
  2. use Project > Save Project As... to save the project with the new name.

New <name>.sublime-project and <name>.sublime-workspace files will be created and you will be switched into the new project. Because you are already in a project all of the settings from the previous project will be copied into the new .sublime-project file.

After you have created the new project you can delete the <name>.sublime-project/workspace files for the original project.

The old project name may still show up in the quick switcher or Project > Open Recent, but you can solve that with Remove Deleted in the Open Recent menu.
