Sublime Text lightweight speed text editor introduction

Sublime Text version

  • Sublime Text 4
  • Sublime Text Build 3211
  • Sublime Text 2.0.2a

PackageControl plug-in

Official website: Package Control - the Sublime Text package manager

Official website Chinese image:

The original official website was used as a Chinese mirror website by the wall. Now the official website has been restored and the Chinese mirror station has been closed.


Use one of the following methods to install Package Control:

Command Palette
  1. Open the command palette
    Win/Linux: ctrl+shift+p, Mac: cmd+shift+p
  2. Type Install Package Control, press enter
  1. Open the Tools menu
  2. Select Install Package Control...

This will download the latest version of Package Control and verify it using public key cryptography. If an error occurs, use the manual method instead.


If the command palette/menu method is not possible due to a proxy on your network or using an old version of Sublime Text, the following steps will also install Package Control:

  1. Click the Preferences > Browse Packages... menu
  2. Browse up a folder and then into the Installed Packages/ folder
  3. Download Package Control.sublime-package and copy it into the Installed Packages/ directory
  4. Restart Sublime Text

Because packagecontrol IO is blocked by the wall, so installing Sublime Text requires two steps

Step 1: install the plug-in code through the console, open the console through View > show console, paste the Python code into the console, and press enter.
