Everyone likes to publish their favorite or “essential” Sublime Text plugins, so I’m joining the party. These are all Sublime Text 3-compatible plugins. I have a number of other plugins installed, but these are the only ones that I would immediately miss if I did a fresh install of ST3 (along with the Ubuntu Mono font.
- Alignment Makes your code like pretty and more readable by lining up selections based on “=” “=>”, etc. Great for arrays.
- GitGutter Unobtrusive display of uncommitted changes in the gutter (next to line numbers).
- Trailing Spaces Highlights and trims unused whitespace at the end of lines.
- SideBarEnhancements Gives you way more options for dealing with files in the sidebar. I just wish I could figure out how to delete a file with shift+delete.
- SublimeLinter Highlights errors in your code as you type.
- Laravel Blade Highlighter Provides color-coding for Laravel’s blade templates. I’ve really wanted to like other editors, and there appears to be a big push toward PHPStorm in the Laravel community right now, but ST3 is just too fast, too pretty, and too customizable for me to change.
