Sublime Text 3 Windows Package Control

How to install & use Package Control

Package control is a full-featured package manager that helps discovering, installing, updating and removing packages for Sublime Text 2/3. It features an automatic upgrader and supports GitHub, BitBucket and a full channel/repository system. You can find the web site HERE

It’s a Sublime Text package that makes it super-easy & convenient to install & manage all your other Sublime Text packages. Because of the ease of use it offers, Package Control really should be the first Sublime Text package you install.

The simplest method of windows installation is through the Sublime Text console. The console is accessed via  View > Show Console menu. Once open, paste the appropriate Python code for your version of Sublime Text into the console.

import urllib.request,os,hashlib; h = '7183a2d3e96f11eeadd761d777e62404e330c659d4bb41d3bdf022e94cab3cd0'; pf = 'Package Control.sublime-package'; ipp = sublime.installed_packages_path(); urllib.request.install_opener( urllib.request.build_opener( urllib.request.ProxyHandler()) ); by = urllib.request.urlopen( '' + pf.replace(' ', '%20')).read(); dh = hashlib.sha256(by).hexdigest(); print('Error validating download (got %s instead of %s), please try manual install' % (dh, h)) if dh != h else open(os.path.join( ipp, pf), 'wb' ).write(by)
