How to open Sublime Text from the command line.

Paste the following code into the Mac OS X Terminal, assuming that you've installed Sublime Text 2 into the /Applications folder.

$ ln -s "/Applications/Sublime Text 2.app/Contents/SharedSupport/bin/subl" ~/bin/sublime

Now you can type sublime <filename> open a file or directory in Sublime Text, or sublime . to open the current directory.

You can also type sublime --help to see a list of the available commands.
