Getting Jade and Stylus working w/ Sublime Text 2

Download Jade and Stylus bundles


Create directories:

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages
mkdir Jade Stylus

Copy the files over

cp -rf ~/Downloads/Jade.tmbundle Jade/
cp -rf ~/Downloads/Stylus.tmbundle Stylus/

IF you already have them inside Textmate then you do this

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages
mkdir Jade Stylus
cp -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles/Jade.tmbundle ./Jade/
cp -rf ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles/Stylus.tmbundle ./Stylus/

Thanks indeed!

If you have git installed which is quite possible assuming this site name:

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages
git clone Jade
git clone Stylus

Thanks !

For anyone that may be looking for this but using Sublime Text 2 on Linux it is a little different, heres how I got it to work:

cd Sublime Text 2/Pristine Packages
git clone Jade.tmbundle
then I compressed the .tmbundle into a .zip, and changed the extension from .zip to .sublime-package

Tried it the same way in Linux and had some trouble. This worked for me:

cd ~/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages
git clone Jade

Very similar on windows, except the path is: "%appdata%\Sublime Text 2\Packages"

Su stupid thread. It can be replaced with one string: “Sublime Text 2 supports Textmate Bundles”.

acao commented Jul 31, 2012

Actually, it's showing up in a lot of google searches, thus why I posted the linux example. It seems that jade is one of the more popular to install ST2 packages, and is likely one of the first that folks tend to install, thus it helps that folks can learn by example here. If you would prefer to troll open source communities with useless commentary, then please continue.

The linux command works just great. You save me time searching.
