Customize your Sublime Text 2 configuration for awesome coding.

I recently discovered Sublime Text 2, an amazing text editor that sits perfectly in the middle ground of better-than-textmate and less-powerful-than-vim. If you followed the link, and happend to have been a Windows user of the early to mid 2000’s, you’ll notice that the software has an evaluation license reminiscent of Winzip.

It was tedious and inefficient. Then I found about Aptana (and Coda, but that’s an article for another time) in conjunction with Dropbox.
