I have started using gulp to run my website build process.

As part of the process is linting I need to ideally have eyes on the console log for any errors. Therefore rather than running it in Terminal I'd prefer to be able to run it inside Sublime Text 3.

I have already found the gulp package which allows quick access to my local gulp commands from within the editor. Running gulp watch in this will activate my watch process and warn me of any linting/compile errors. However if I use Ctrl+F the console disappears to open the find dialogue, and I presume this ends my watch process too.

So how can I use things like find without closing the console? Ideally I'd like the console to require explicit instruction to close, so I don't accidentally terminate my watch process and can see that it is running.


Actually it is not console but build result. You may reopen it from Tools->Build Results->Show Build Results. I admit this is confusing.

    Will using that option keep it open if I use the Find dialogue or press Esc? – M1ke Aug 5 '14 at 11:06
  • That option will reopen the "console"(which is called Build Result in Sublime Text) but it will not keep the console open when you try to find. – user879820 Aug 6 '14 at 2:14
