Sublime Text Plugin

If you are a Sublime Text user, you don't have to change your favorite editor to write an app for webOS TV. Continue using Sublime Text but now with a plugin for webOS TV. To install the plugin, read the installation guide.

If you are new to Sublime Text, this editor is available for free. However, a license needs to be purchased for stable and continuous use. If you do not wish to purchase the license key, not to worry. You can opt to use the eclipse IDE packaged in the webOS TV SDK instead.

Although we have put every effort to apply all the features of the SDK components on Sublime Text, not all the features are available on Sublime Text. Read on the next section to find what features you can use.

Currently, the plugin supports Sublime Text 2 only.
