When typing a tag, Sublime Text has tab completion. Say you got to this point in typing a div tag: <div you could then hit tab and it should complete it to <div></div>

it is by autocomplete list ,,,,, but can i make it to complete auto without pressing anything

in Sublime Text closing tag can be done by pressing tab key after typing the first part of each tag. for example

<tag + tab or simply tag + tab

can i make it to complete tag without pressing anything

but there is no plugin that will automatically complete tag without pressing shortcut keys ....... like in dreamweaver

Sublime text has lots of packages at: https://sublime.wbond.net

I don't know of any specific auto complete for tags but I'm sure there is one or something similar.

I personally use one called Bracket highlighter which will highlight opening and closing brackets, which makes your code easier to troubleshoot.

In Sublime, you can just type for name of the tag + tab to get full autocomplete. For example, if you type div then press tab you get


The cursor is placed between the tags. This is even better than Dreamweaver, in that you only need to type 4 characters -- div + tab -- instead of 5 characters -- <div> -- to get the autocomplete.
