Introducing Sublime Tutor
An interactive, in-editor, friendly tutor for Sublime Text 3
Remember the good old days of Vim editor? While a flamewar between supporters of different editors is out of scope for this post, you need to give credit to Vim for the excellent tutorial package it shipped with it — vimtutor.
Cut to present — Sublime Text is one of the popular editors out there, it is so easy that you don’t even need to learn its features / shortcuts before starting to feel productive with it. My day was made when I first saw multiple cursors doing magical things in the beautiful world of sublime text.
I searched the internet to find something that could teach me Sublime Text’s ninja powers as vimtutor did earlier for Vim. Not then, but now that I know Sublime’s little secrets, I thought of taking the responsibility myself.
Introducing Sublime Tutor for Sublime Text 3
Created as a Package Control plugin, once installed, the course can be started using pre-configured key combination Ctrl+Alt+K or via command palette. It comes with 6 different modules detailing commands related to editing, selection, navigation and finding what you need. All the chapters are supplemented with exercises and revision section.
Some screenshots from the course:
To download it from Package Control, do the following
- Install Package Control (instructions on the website)
- Once it is installed, press `Cmd+Shift+P` to bring command palette in front and type: `Package Control Install`. Search for `Sublime Tutor` package and select and install it once it appears.
- There is no step 3.
Give it a try and if you find an issue, please open an issue on Github for it. I’ll be happy to receive your feedback on this.
