Video: Installing Sublime Text 2

In this course, we are going to need to have an editor we can use for editing our HTML and our CSS files. And you can use any editor that you like. If you've already got one you like, go ahead and use it. But if you want to follow along with me very, very closely. The editor that I am going to use is called Sublime Text and it's version number 2. You can get this particular editor by going to sublimetext.com. And here on the website you can download a copy of the software from here. So if you just scroll on down the page here, you'll see a nice big blue button here that says Download for Windows, if you happen to be on a Windows machine.

Installing Sublime Text 2

In this course, we are going to need to have an editor we can use for editing our HTML and our CSS files. And you can use any editor that you like. If you've already got one you like, go ahead and use it. But if you want to follow along with me very, very closely. The editor that I am going to use is called Sublime Text and it's version number 2. You can get this particular editor by going to sublimetext.com. And here on the website you can download a copy of the software from here. So if you just scroll on down the page here, you'll see a nice big blue button here that says Download for Windows, if you happen to be on a Windows machine.

And if you're on a Mac it should say Download for Mac. Go ahead and click the big button. And this is going to prompt me to save this particular file. I'm working with Firefox so this is the interface that you're going to see here. I'm going to go ahead and say Save File. And you'll see that this is going to show up up here in my Downloads. If I click the big green arrow here and open up my Download folder, I can see that I have a copy of Sublime Text here in my Downloads folder. Now I can double click on that to run it. The wizard is going to ask me some questions about installing it.

I'm going to say next, next, next, install, all of the defaults. Mac people, what'll happen is you're going to download a different kind of file. If you take that and you put it into your Applications folder you should wind up with a working copy of Sublime Text. Go ahead and say Finish here. I'm working with Windows 8 on this particular computer so to get my copy of Sublime Text I'm just going to go take my cursor down here to the lower left corner here. Find my Start button and then I'm just going to start typing Sublime Text and this is going to pull up a link.

If you're running an older version of Windows, go to your Start button down there in the bottom and it will come up and you should find a link to Sublime Text 2. Mac people if you take a look in your applications folder on your Mac, you should see an icon for Sublime Text, and you can go ahead and run it from there. When you first open Sublime Text 2 you will see absolutely nothing, and that's totally okay. What you're going to do from here is, you can go ahead and start a new documents. For example, File, New File and you can start typing HTML from here. I'll show you how to set up Sublime Text to work with your Bootstrap folder which you're going to establish a little bit later on.

One of the things you might want to do is you'll notice here is this text is white, as you see its just white text on a black background. So, one of the things you might want to do at this point is change your color scheme. And the way you can change your color scheme is to go to Preferences, Color Scheme. And the Color Scheme I am going to be using is called iPlastic. So that'll give me a white background with black text and it's certainly much easier to read. So that's how you go about installing Sublime Text 2. It's just a really good text editor. It's nice for working with HTML, CSS and Javascript.

If you have some other editor you preferred to use like Dreamweaver or Notepad or Text Edit or BB Edit or any one of a number of other products. That's totally fine. You go right ahead and use whatever you like. Just as long as you can edit those HTML and CSS files. That's all that's really required.
