Do you love Sublime Text? Looking for a color scheme that looks good in lots of languages and takes advantage of as many scopes as possible? Check out my Neon Color Scheme, available through Package Control. Also works great in TextMate.

Also, check out Python Improved, a better, updated Python .tmLanguage syntax definition for Sublime and TextMate. Fixes lots of bugs with the existing syntax, and adds new scopes for IPython, Django, Python 3 support, and much more. Use Neon for customized syntax highlighting, or modify your favorite color scheme.


Looking for a great Linux hosting provider geared toward developers with shell access, a bunch of ready-to-deploy apps, and awesome tech support? Check out WebFaction, my favorite alternative to the big hosting beasts. They run CentOS 6 x64, have datacenters around the world, and have a full suite of regularly-updated development and deployment tools. And did I mention they're cheap? My basic plan with 512MB RAM, 100GB disk, and 600 GB bandwidth/month is just US$8.50/mo! (if you prepay for a full year - US$102). Check out all these other features:

  • Full control over shell access (multi-user capability), email, and DNS.
  • Python, Ruby/Rails, PHP, Java, Perl, shell scripts...
  • Ability to install whatever software tools you need, and execute long-running processes.
  • nginx and Apache, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, MongoDB...
  • "One-click" (actually, several clicks and some typing) installers for a whole bunch (and different versions) of popular applications like Django, Rails, WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and more.
  • and a ton of other stuff.

I honestly don't know of any other hosting provider that has a similar product, and if one exists I can't imagine it's as cheap. BTW, I don't work for them, I'm just a very satisfied customer.


Why Pigimal?

I sometimes call my guinea pig (also known as a cavy) "Pigimal", which is short for "Piggy Animal." Now you know.


Flair, Baby!

@user272441 - you can read through the README, and also browse through the Tools -> SublimeREPL menus for the different options available.

comment Simple Text. Build doesn't work. What's wrong?
@user272441 that's good - The code I posted runs perfectly in both Python 2.7.6 and 3.3.5. What may have happened is you copied and pasted the code, but forgot to save before building, and it built the previous version.

@user272441 If the code in the question is not the code you are trying to run, please edit the question and put in the correct code. Once you have pasted in your code, highlight it all and hit Ctrl-K to properly format it as a code block.

comment Simple Text. Build doesn't work. What's wrong?
@user272441 The edit to your post did not change any of the code. Instead of using docstrings, try completely removing any bits of the code that you don't want to run, and try again.

comment Remove “(UNREGISTRED)” string from window title of Sublime Text 2
@user258266 - Sublime Text is not part of the Ubuntu distribution. PPAs are "Personal Package Archives" set up by individuals to redistribute software. Much of it is free, some is not, like Sublime. It is up to you to understand and comply with the licenses for each piece of software you use. Just because the base Ubuntu distribution is freely distributable (although you can pay for it if you want to) does not mean that all software that runs on it is free. Many examples are here.

This question would be much better suited to TeX - LaTeX, as it has nothing to do with ubuntu.
