I use Sublime Text 3 and can open Sublime command line with command CTRL + `

... and I can run commands there and see results in a log window, but I cannot search in that log window.

sublime command line and log

I believe the log text of the Sublime log window also exists somewhere in file system. If I can find that log file, I can open it with vim (or similar) and search there.

My question: Where is the log file stored? I can copy/paste this log to new file and search there, but that would be a frustrating extra step.

My OS is OS X 10.8.5

I searched /Users/maks/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3 but nothing found.

This is my directory output.

Makss-Mac:Sublime Text 3 maks$ ls
Cache           Installed Packages  Packages
Index           Local

No, use this: yrammos / SublimeLog


Sublime Text 2 and 3 provide a console (accessible via Control-`) for interaction with their Python-based innards and plug-in architecture. This plug-in logs the console contents into a plain-text file ornamented with logger activation/deactivation timestamps.


Yes, it does.

You can see console history this file:

/Users/maks/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Data/Local/Session.sublime_session

It is a JSON file and the console commands are stored in windows.console.history.

One note though, Sublime Text does not update the file until you close the program.

  • for me path was /Users/maks/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Local/Session.sublime_session. Due to it is updated only after closing sublime, it is not compatible for my task. thank you anyway. – Maxim Yefremov Dec 1 '13 at 7:06
