Install your Sublime Text Editor Plugins automatically

Last week a guest post on css-tricks.com by Wes Bos introduced a great list of plugins to use with Sublime Text Editor. It's hard to keep track of all these by hand, so we decided to include them in our dotfiles repository, which basically can be reduced to two lines of code:

# this should install all plugins required for a healthy and long life

wget -O "$HOME/.config/sublime-text-2/Installed Packages/Package Control.sublime-package" https://sublime.wbond.net/Package%20Control.sublime-package

ln -s Package\ Control.sublime-settings ~/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages/User/

With minor modifications it can be modified to work with Sublime Text Editor 3. The contents of Package Control.sublime-settings based on the article by Wes Bos should look like:

{
    "installed_packages":
    [
        "Color Highlighter",
        "Emmet",
        "JavaScriptNext - ES6 Syntax",
        "Package Control",
        "SCSS",
        "Solarized Color Scheme",
        "SublimeLinter"
    ]
}

This is still a work in progress, so expect crazy changes in the upcoming months. If it's broken, let us know on Twitter!
