Sublime Text 2, Fetch Settings, and Zen Coding

I recent­ly been using Sub­lime Text 2 as my text-edi­tor (for text, code, etc.). I was using Text­Mate 1.5.x before­hand, but that project has­n’t been updat­ed in a while (oth­er than Text­Mate 2.0 Alpha’s of course). Any­ways, Sub­lime Text 2 is pret­ty fast. I can’t wait to see what else it can do with future improve­ments, espe­cial­ly once it gets out of beta-devel­op­ment.

If you are new to it, you may have a read over at Net­tuts+ for some tips & tricks. Also, be sure to check-out the Zen Cod­ing project.

Zen Cod­ing is an edi­tor plu­g­in for high-speed HTML, XML, XSL (or any oth­er struc­tured code for­mat) cod­ing and edit­ing. The core of this plu­g­in is a pow­er­ful abbre­vi­a­tion engine which allows you to expand expressions—similar to CSS selectors—into HTML code.

You may install the Zen Cod­ing pack­age via Sub­lime Text 2’s Pack­age Con­trol (instruc­tions are in the linked Net­tuts+ arti­cle above).

Mean­while, I man­aged to upload and share my Fetch set­tings on Gist below for those that can find it use­ful:

I hope that helps you work more effi­cient­ly.

PS. I also can’t wait to see how the Light Table editor/IDE works when it releas­es to the pub­lic. It reached its fund­ing goal in Kick­starter yes­ter­day.
