I know how one may install Sublime text packages within Sublime text (it is well described at https://packagecontrol.io/docs/usage ).

But I am looking for way to do it automatically, without a manual installation (for example after system reinstall).

Is it feasible?

Probably not the answer you are looking for. But what about just backing up your ~/.config/sublime-text-3 folder and restoring it again? This will at least work for a system reinstall.

  • I will not accept for now as in my case main point of reinstall is to reset all what I tweaked and changed, and apply what I consider to be verified changes. So only upvote for now. Jul 3, 2018 at 13:56


This seems to be exactly what you want. Just modify the content of ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/User/Package Control.sublime-settings with packages you want and restart Sublime to see the miracle.

Remark: When you restart Sublime it could go frozen due to a huge pile of packages it has to download
