my sublimetext 3 settings

With a new machine comes an opportunity to go through your workflow and setup rituals, review your settings, and personal preferences. A staple for me is SublimeText and here are my default setting overrides for version 3


  • frankly, i don't love any of the default color schema, but Cobalt is my go-to
  • don't ask my why, but i've always been a word wrap hater - makes my eyes bleed
  • i work with a lot of VIM people or hate tabs... for my team, we've agreed to use spaces and i'd like to know what kind of whitespace is at play in my files for that reason
  • i do a lot of integration work where encoding matters so i always want to see it
  • i prefer to have a blank slate with sublime opens
    "color_scheme": "Packages/Color Scheme - Default/Cobalt.tmTheme",
    "word_wrap": "false",
    "translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
    "draw_white_space": "all",
    "show_encoding": true,
