I know I can launch sublime from the command line with subl, but how do I open it with the current directory I'm in appearing in the file viewer panel on the left?


You can pass a file name or directory to the subl command without any extra arguments. For example, to open the current directory in the sidebar, just run:

subl .

To open a specific file, just pass its name:

subl ~/.bashrc

Run subl --help to get a summary of command-line options.
