Sublimate – Open in Sublime Text 2

Subliminate - Open Files/Folders in Sublime Text 2 using Path FinderIntroducing Sublimate — a Mac-only application to open files/folders in Sublime Text 2 by selecting them in Path Finder.

Think of Sublimate as “Open in Sublime Text 2” command that works in Path Finder.

You can select a single folder or a single file, or multiple folders and/or multiple files. Sublimate handles them all by opening them in Sublime Text 2.


  • Download Sublimate or clone the Git repository (
  • Copy to a folder of you choice (e.g., /Applications)
  • Browse to the folder in Path Finder, and drag the Sublimate application to the Toolbar on top.
  • To open a folder/file in Sublime Text 2, select it in Path Finder and click the Sublimate button in the toolbar.

Using Sublime Text 2 with ColdFusion

I’ve been using Sublime Text 2 over the past few days. Since it is fairly compatible with TextMate syntax and language files, I’ve ported the snippets from the ColdFusion TextMate bundle (CFTextMate) to Sublime Text 2. I’ve also added a bunch of snippets that I use myself and find handy.

The plugin and install instructions are available at:


In addition, I’ve also customized the Merbivore Soft color scheme that I use. So working with it feels as nice as the editor itself.

Edit: Please useĀ for the community-developed package.

Is My Home Ready for IPV6?

IPv6I was listening to the Guardian Tech Weekly podcast the other day. In it they discussed the implications of IPV4 addresses running out and the impending arrival of IPV6 address.

So I started looking at the various modems/routers I have around the house to figure out if they support IPV6.

And as expected the main Dynalink ADSL modem which connects to the ISP and provides broadband to the house does not support IPV6. The other wireless routers (and I have three of them around the house — an Airport Extreme and two Airport Express) both have the options to configure IPV6.

Now, I still don’t fully understand what exactly are the implications on my home infrastructure when the time comes to switch to IPV6, but might have start looking for a new modem over the next year!


Update (7 March 2011): The most recent list of projects is available at:

Over the past few years I’ve created some small applications to either provide as examples in the trainings that I’ve conducted, or as learning grounds for something new that I’ve tried. Some of these projects include:

Flex-based Contact Manager using Cairngorm Framework
A simple contact manager that allows for contacts to be listed, added, edited and searched. The backend uses ColdFusion to store information in memory.I wrote this app to get my head around key Cairngorm concepts. I found this really helped to understand the basics of the framework. This application uses the Adobe Cairngorm framework.

Flex-based RSS Reader using Cairngorm Framework
This is a simple Flex RSS Reader that uses the Adobe Cairngorm framework. During the various Flex trainings that I conducted, I found that the participants were finding it difficult to get their heads around too many things — Flex, and then Cairngorm. I used this application quite often to illustrate how Cairngorm can be used to structure Flex applications.

I’m currently in the process of learning Groovy and Grails. I’ll soon be posting two applications that I’ve used to help me get my head around the basic concepts of both.
