Lightning Fast Folder and File Creation in Sublime Text 2

by

I'm frequently asked about how I'm able to create new directory structures and files so quickly in Sublime Text 2. Well the answer is that this functionality is not offered natively; instead, I use a helpful plugin. I'll demonstrate it in this video.

Choose 720p for the clearest video.

Closing Thoughts

It's worth mentioning that, toward the end of the video, I assign a custom key-binding: n-n. Please note that this binding assumes that you're working in Vintage (Vim) mode. To trigger it, you'd exit to command mode - by pressing Esc - and then type n-n.

If you're not a Vintage user, you can stick with the default key-binding that comes with the plugin.
