  • It’s been a while since my last post so I thought it would be a good idea to write a quick update following on from my previous post about creating a custom sidebar theme for Sublime Text.

    I’m still using Sublime these days but I’ve recently made the switch to version 3 which is (still!) in beta. It’s now been about 6 months since I started using Sublime Text and in that time I’ve picked up a couple of nice settings that make for a more beautiful coding experience. I thought I’d share them below because I know a lot of people just use it as is and don’t really look at the options they have to tweak Sublime to there liking.

  • For a couple of months now I’ve been using Sublime Text 2. If you don’t know it then you should definitely check it out. In my opinion (and in many others), it’s the best text editor out there.

    I don't like the appearance of the sidebar that much though so in this post I show you how you can easily customise with just a handful of lines of code and a few minutes of your time.

  • Analytics is something that’s not a top priority for me as a developer but it provides a fascinating insight into your visitors and your sites performance. Google Analytics is full of features but I’ve never really went through and looked at them to see what they could do for me. There is one feature that really caught my eye though… Event Tracking.
