One of my friends was using Sublime Text 3 as an editor for an Angular JS application but he was using it without packages, so he had to do everything manually. I suggested to him a few packages and now he is much more productive than ever. So in the blog post, I’m going to share a few tips and packages for working with SublimeText.

Sublime Text 3 support packages that make it a great choice for any kind of Web Development project. This makes a developer’s life easier allowing us to be much more productive than ever. Sublime Text does not come with an inbuilt package manager but there is a third party package manager called “Package Control”. You can find more information about that on the following location:
