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

Commentary:

  • frankly, i don't love any of the default color schemes, 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 prefer spaces over tabs because i'm not insane
  • 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
