I'm trying out Sublime Text 2. I know that I can see the value of a particular setting by entering a console command like so:

>>> view.settings().get("word_wrap")

But is there a way to get all current settings—ideally in JSON format? Since these don't seem to be documented anywhere, I'm mainly looking for things I might want to override in my user settings file.


You can see the defaults for the program bu looking in the Preferences -> File settings - Default or Preferences -> Global settings - Default. These are the defaults you can overwrite with your settings, and are therefore what the values are when you first install the program.

By looking through these, you can see what you'd like to change.

Which OS? Assuming Windows, even though you seem to be using Python?...

I have not tried the v2 beta, but on 1.4 I have the settings in the program folder in .\Data\Packages\Default\Options\Application.sublime-options. I have it installed as a portable app, so the file may be in %APPDATA% for you.

  • I'm on a Mac, but that shouldn't matter. Settings are handled differently in Sublime Text 2 (which has an integrated Python console); they're spread across several files. – Trevor Burnham Jul 23 '11 at 2:01
