Setting up build system

By setting up the build, you can easily run javascript tests or build sass.

Go to Tools -> Build System -> New Build System, and add your own build script. For example, mine is like this.

[sourcecode language="javascript"]
"cmd": ["cmd.exe", "/c", "rake", "run_jstests", "build_section=files"],
"working_dir": "YOUR_WORKING_DIRECTORY",
"selector": "source.js"


You can look at the comprehensive keyboard shortcuts, yet the below are my favourites.

  • open console: ctrl + '
  • open command pallete: ctrl + shift + p
  • find in files: ctrl + shft + F
  • reveal in sidebar: unfortunately, no shortcut key yet. right on the view and select it
  • Quick-open files by name: ctrl + p
  • Go to word in the current file: ctrl + ;
  • Duplicate line(s): ctrl + shft + d
  • move line/selection up: ctrl + shft + up arrow
  • move line/selection down: ctrl + shft + down arrow
  • align variables declaration (alignment): ctrl + alt + a
