WordPress Localization Plugin for Sublime Text

I wrote this plugin for Sublime Text to help on a project where I am localizing a lot of text.

I found I was copy and pasting the same i18n methods over and over so I decided that there must be a relatively easy way to automate this using a plugin.

Now I select some text, press my key shortcut and the text gets replaced with the appropriate i18n method.

Meet WordPress coding standards on Sublime Text – SublimePhpTidy

I made the move from Coda to Sublime Text this week.

After only a week, I really, really like Sublime Text – it’s fast, pretty and customizable with a wide range of plugins available via the Package Manager.

Here are 9 reasons Sublime Text is only mighty!

I came across an old Coda plugin that I did some work on years ago that is now available on Sublime Text; the plugin helps to tidy and format your code to meet WordPress coding standards.

The plugin is available here – https://github.com/welovewordpress/SublimePhpTidy

It is pretty cool to see something you did a few years ago being picked up by someone else, improved upon and ported to a new editor that you happen to move to :).

Find large files on a Mac using Terminal

Every few days, I had an issue where my startup disk was full and emptying the trash just wasn’t doing enough.

I found the following command online that searches a file system for files over 500MB and prints the file path. It identified files I had totally forgotten about as well as some huge files generated by apps I no longer used.

sudo find / -size +500000 -print

I then used the rm command to delete files. When deleting entire directories I used the recursive flag (be careful!)
rm -rf <directory path>
