I wrote this while I was getting the hang of using git in my current role. Over time I’ve added to it but to be honest, I rarely have to refer to it now.
If you’re wondering at the shorthand ‘g’ rather than ‘git’ it’s because I use oh-my-zsh with the git plugin (the dev VM I use at work runs Ubuntu and it also plays nice with OS X. Windows users can suck it). You can get a similar result by aliasing git commands.
If you don’t know those two, stop reading now.
You need to be a bit careful with these as adding lots of them can really slow Sublime Text down.
I found this list of handy addons while looking around for a way to get grunt running from within ST. It starts off with installing the excellent Package Control which makes installing and managing addon packages sooooo much easier. Trust me on this. I found it only after an annoying process of manually installing an addon. With Package Control those days are gone for good.
Now that was a weird sentence to write.
Handy guide full of Git goodness.
If you’ve never used Git before, this is a great intro. Codeschool runs a course where you can try git out if you want to learn some basics.
If you ever need a readily accessible web dev environment, give cloud9.io a try. I’ve been looking at building a VM that I can use for dev work but this seems to do what I need.
Or, if building your own is what you want to do (practice makes perfect) try this guide at Zynga.
