Thanks for installing Sublime SFTP! Below are some quick notes to get you started with the plugin. Please see for the full documentation.

There are two major modes of operation:

  1. Mapping a local folder to a remote folder
  2. Working off of a server

Mapping a Local Folder to a Remote Folder

To map a local folder to a remote folder, right-click on it in the side bar and select the SFTP/SFTP > Map to Remote… You will enter your connection parameters and a new file will be created named sftp-config.json.

Once this file has been saved, all files in that folder and all subfolders will have various operations available via the side bar context menu, editor context menu and command palette.

Working off of a Server

To work off of a server, use the File menu and select SFTP/FTP > Setup Server… You will enter your connection parameters and options then save the file with the name you want to give the connection.

Once the server config is saved, you will be automatically connected to the server and you can browse and perform actions via the quick panel.

Unfortunely due to limitations of the Sublime Text 2 API, it is not possible to present the remote filesystem in the side bar. There are, however, key bindings for connecting to servers to help reduce the amount of time remote file operations take.

Markdown Preview Plugin

MarkdownPreview: :: revolunet/sublimetext-markdown-preview

My key bindings:

{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+m"], "command": "markdown_preview", "args": {"target": "browser"} }

And change markdown.css file with GitHub’s one.

Markdown CSS Theme Collection :: jasonm23/markdown-css-themes

But I’m using GitHub’s: :: Github Markdown CSS - for Markdown Editor Preview — Gist

Replace the file located at: %APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2\Packages\Markdown Preview\markdown.css

You should add Tumblr support to Markdown Preview plugin - a forked Plugin. :: Blake Anderson • Sublime Text - Markdown to Tumblr Plugin :: blakeanderson/sublimetext-markdown-preview

Or, I just found one alternative that looks great: Pandoc (Markdown) jclement/SublimePandoc · GitHub This is the most flexible one. In essence, it has everything. Problem is: You’ll need to download and install Pandoc and have it in your PATH.

Alignement plugins

The only working and installed is VAlign.

  • VAlign Originally based on wbond’s Alignment plugin (mentioned later), but better than original. More intelligent. Just press Ctrl+\ anywhere.

  • Abacus Alignment Plugin for Sublime Text 2 that actually works Try with: ctrl+alt+] But it’s not magic for me.

  • Code Alignment Very advanced one. Shortcut (basic one): Ctrl+Shift+’=’ But it’s not working for me.

  • Alignment Ctrl+Alt+A: Alignment of multi-line selections The first one. There are betters now.

Better Manual Word Wrapping

sublimator/ZenCoding Incredible plugin. Shortcut: Ctrl + Alt + Enter. Perfect for HTML typing. Try - html:5 or

Additional PHP Snippets Not very useful snippets.

Typing ‘/**’ and then pressing ENTER. The plugin will create a template doc block for you to fill out to suit.

format :st3 - Search - Package Control Formatting HTML with Sublime Text

I have dediced to use CodeFormatter, but it looks like HTML-CSS-JS Prettify has very nice review. It works with node.js, so you have to install it.

Markdown Syntax

I just want to change a syntax to recognize Github flavored Markdown. The simplest - just a syntax file, and also the best is Markdown Extended. I also tested Knockdown but it is way inferior and doesn’t support bash syntax.
