My Sublime text 3 config

February 02, 2017 Written By Marco Monteiro

For the last 4 years or so I’ve been using sublime text 2. I bought the license, therefore I saw no point in upgrading. Until today, when I found out that I could use my ST2 license on ST3 (beta). Today was configuration day and I re-configured editor or choice.


Package Control

The Sublime Text package manager that makes it exceedingly simple to find, install and keep packages up-to-date.


Bracket Highlighter matches a variety of brackets such as: [], (), {}, “”, ‘’, #!xml , and even custom brackets.

This was originally forked from pyparadigm’s SublimeBrackets and SublimeTagmatcher (both are no longer available). I forked this to fix some issues I had and to add some features I had wanted. I also wanted to improve the efficiency of the matching.

Statusbar Path

Since I use Sublime in fullscreen most of the time its really usefull to have the complete path of the file I’m working on on the status bar.


This one is essential so you dont have to worry about your indentation in php.

Here’s my config:

"enable_auto_align": false,
"indent_with_space": true,
"psr1": false,
"psr2": true,
"version": 2

And finally my config file:

  "auto_complete_commit_on_tab": false,
  "bold_folder_labels": true,
  "caret_style": "phase",
  "color_scheme": "Packages/Material Theme/schemes/Material-Theme.tmTheme",
  "detect_indentation": false,
  "draw_white_space": "all",
  "fallback_encoding": "UTF-8",
  "font_face": "M+ 1mn light",
  "font_size": 14,
  "highlight_line": true,
  "highlight_modified_tabs": true,
  "line_padding_bottom": 1,
  "line_padding_top": 2,
  "match_brackets": true,
  "match_brackets_angle": true,
  "match_brackets_braces": true,
  "match_brackets_content": true,
  "match_brackets_square": true,
  "scroll_past_end": true,
  "show_full_path": true,
  "tab_size": 4,
  "tabs_small": true,
  "theme": "Material-Theme.sublime-theme",
  "translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
  "trim_trailing_white_space_on_save": true,
  "vintage_ctrl_keys": true,
  "vintage_start_in_command_mode": false,
  "word_wrap": true


	{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+left"], "command": "next_view_in_stack" },
	{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+right"], "command": "prev_view_in_stack" },
	{ "keys": ["alt+d"], "command": "goto_definition" },
	{ "keys": ["ctrl+7"], "command": "toggle_comment", "args": { "block": false } },
	{ "keys": ["ctrl+shift+7"], "command": "toggle_comment", "args": { "block": true } }

This way if you don’t need to click to use the goto definition functionality.

If you want to use the same font I use you can find it here on some ocasions I also use M+ 2m. One other thing I also like to change is the application icon. At home I use this one.

If you really want to go nuts about it you can also add a icon package thing so all your icon files are specific to the type of file you have open. Some themes have that, some don’t. To solve that just use this repo here and follow all the instructions.
