Useful Sublime Text User Preferences for Ruby on Rails Development


In Sublime Text, go to Sublime Text > Preferences > Settings – User

My settings look like this:

	"color_scheme": "Packages/Color Scheme - Default/Monokai.tmTheme",
	"font_size": 16,
	"scroll_past_end": true,
	"tab_size": 2,
	"theme": "Soda Dark 3.sublime-theme",
	"translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
	"ensure_newline_at_eof_on_save": false

Here’s what the settings do:

  1. Change the color scheme
  2. Increase the font size
  3. Ignore the “Vintage” package which lets you use VIM like commands
  4. Lets you scroll past the end
  5. Change the tab size to 2
  6. Change the theme
  7. Use spaces instead of tabs
  8. Ensure newline at end of file on save

You can also have syntax specific settings by going to Sublime Text > Preferences > Settings – More > Syntax Specific – User
