Adding new file to sublime in terminal

How did you do that where you add the new file with 'subl gulpfile.js'?

If you followed the instructions here: https://gist.github.com/olivierlacan/1195304 then the command installed is sublime and not subl. So try running sublime . and it should open Sublime Text in the current directory.

this isn't quite the answer you're looking for, BUT you can also use the command "touch"

touch gulpfile.js

Hi Gavin,

Take a look here for the answer: https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/create-sublime-files-from-terminal-how-did-you-do-it

The subl command should be available out of the box with Sublime Text. Just go to the folder you want to create the file in Terminal, and run: subl newfile.js

This will open Sublime Text with a new buffer under the name newfile.js. It won't actually save the file until you save in Sublime Text (⌘ + S or File -> Save).

Hey Andrew Corcoran That actually didn't work. I'm receiving:

error: -bash: subl: command not found
