17th November 2012
How to open Sublime Text from the command line.
Paste the following code into the Mac OS X Terminal, assuming that you've installed Sublime Text 2 into the /Applications folder.
$ ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" ~/bin/sublime
Now you can type
sublime <filename> open a file or directory in Sublime Text, or
sublime . to open the current directory.
You can also type
sublime --help to see a list of the available commands.
