                                                     FOR SUBLIME TEXT 3

Sublime Text 3 is a powerful and easy to use text editor. An ultra simple user interface beautifully hides all the complexity behind. You can start using the editor without knowing any details, which is great for beginners.

When I started using Sublime Text, I was a migrant from the world of TextMate and Vim. While a lot of keyboard shortcuts and features were similar to TextMate, some looked alien as well. Earlier, when I was learning Vim, I had found vimtutor to be of great help. In my early days with Sublime, I was looking for a similar solution which could interactively teach new shortcuts inside the editor itself.

This tutorial is inspired from classic vimtutor. You will get to learn some handy shortcuts to work with Sublime Text 3. By the end of this tutorial, you would be familiar with ST's most important and frequently used shortcuts and features.

The tutorial uses spaced repetition technique to make sure that your newly acquired skills are well persisted.

Requirements

You have Sublime Text 3 installed on your system. If not, you can download it from here: https://www.sublimetext.com/3. In case if you are on version 2, you can clone this GIT repository on your system and follow the instructions in tutorial directory inside. Some shortcuts and features discussed would be ST3 only, but you'd know about it then.

Having said that, there is no reason that you should be using Sublime Text 2. A lot of improvements have been made since the version 2 and the latest version is stable enough to do most of the things. Unless, your life depends on a plugin that is only supported by ST2. I can't help you then.
