You may not know how install pack­ages in Sub­lime Text. If that matches for you, this post is for you.

This will install pack­age con­trol, which is neces­sary if you want to install pack­ages. When fin­ished install­a­tion, you will be promp­ted telling you that.

and press <Enter>. This will make your edit­or search and read the sub­lime text pack­age repos­it­or­ies, and you will be promp­ted with the avail­able pack­ages. To install a pack­age, search for it by just start­ing to type its name, select it using the arrow keys and press <Enter>. This will install the desired package.
