This post is just some notes to remind me how I like to setup a Windows 10 machine for editing scripts.
Install and configure Git
First step, install Git. Download the git installer. After downloading, run the installer and accept the default settings.
Then add posh-git for Powershell :
Open a Powershell window “as Administrator” and execute the following :
set-ExecutionPolicy bypass git clone git://github.com/dahlbyk/posh-git.git cd posh-git ./install.ps1 . $PROFILE
Install and configure Sublime Text
Start by downloading and installing Sublime Text. Accept the default settings during installation.
Next, we want to be able to launch Sublime Text from the command line. To do this we need to make some changes to our environment variables.
First create a new system variable with a name of
SUBLIME and a value of
C:\Program Files\Sublime Text 3
Next, Edit the user variable
Path and append
;%SUBLIME% to the end.
Now we can simply use
subl.exe to launch the editor from a command line.
I like to add some packages to Sublime Text to make it more useful. To do this, first install Package Control. To do this, visit the Package Control site and follow the instructions.
After installing package control, we can install some packages. Open Sublime Text and press
Ctrl-Shift-P. Start typing install into the search box and choose
Package Control: Install Package You can now search for useful packages. I like to install support for Powershell and VBScript.
