Generate a Rails Application - Sublime Text 2

In the video when sublime text is opened there are folders beyond folders. When I open sublime text nothing is available, it is a blank document. Where to I download the documents so I can view the content discussed in the video? Thanks!

Hey Scott -

  1. Have you linked Sublime Text 2 to launch from the command line (Terminal, etc)?

  2. After generating a new rails application are you changing the directory of your command line to the parent folder of your application?

Hi, Zander,

Please show me how to do this -- I'm lost.



Alex, thanks for the reply!

1) I am not sure if I did this step or not. I think when I was working on this last weekend all the files loaded when I opened sublime text. (I normally spend my weekends on this site, haha I know I'm cool) 2) Do you mean in my command line so it says "treebook" in it? That's what the video calls the project. Yes I did do this with "cd treebook"

I will look into number one.

Thanks again Alex!

No problem!

Check this out if you haven't already to make sure you have the symlink set up: http://www.sublimetext.com/docs/2/osx_command_line.html

I read over the link but a lot of the lingo is over my head. Any other suggestions on how to do this? Thanks!

I'm going to resort deleting the server and trying the whole process again. Sublime Text did work with it at one point in time. Hopefully this will fix it!

Update: Unfortunately my plan didn't work. Ugh! Very frustrating, the next part of the series has me working within sublime text haha.

Got this to work. Go to "Projects" then "Add folder to projects".

So simple but so hard haha.

Hello, I need more help. I went to the link provided in this thread and ran the 'setup' line which responded with 'file exists' (which I am assuming is good). But I am confused as to the next step under usage? What am I supposed to do? I am new at all this, so dumb it down for me as much as possible please.

I'm lost on this, too. Did anyone ever respond to you?

Please let me know -- thanks.
