========= VintageEx

A rendition of Vim's command-line mode for Sublime Text 2.


This whole package is distributed under the MIT license (see LICENSE.txt).


VintageEx aims at full cross-platform compatibility. Howerver, I cannot test under OS X, so patches and feedback are welcome.


Download the latest version_, put it under Installed Packages and restart Sublime Text.

To open the command line, press :.

VintageEx offers tab completion of top-level commands, so you can type a letter and press Tab to cycle through available commands.

To see the implemented commands, you can look through


These settings should be stored in your personal preferences (Packages/User/Preferences.sublime-settings).


The name of the shell through which commands should be executed (bash, ksh, etc.). If empty, the $SHELL variable will be read when a shell is needed.


The name of the preferred terminal emulator (gnome-terminal, xterm, etc.). If empty, the variables $COLORTERM and $TERM will be read in turn when a terminal is needed.
