I've installed Sublime Text and I've installed SublimeLinter. But when I...

  • open Sublime Text
  • open the command palette
    • via Tools > Command Palette
  • select Package Control: Install Package
  • select =BB= LSL

... I can't find =BB= LSL in the list of selections.

Does anyone have any idea what's going wrong here?

This is from the Read Me in my installed package


# Installation

This bundle is designed to work with the latest version of [Sublime Text 2](http://www.sublimetext.com/2).

[v1.3.2](https://github.com/makopo/sublime-text-lsl/releases/tag/1.3.2) or later will work with [Sublime Text 3](http://www.sublimetext.com/3) as well.

### Using Sublime Package Control

The easiest way to install this is via [Package Control](https://sublime.wbond.net).

 * If you just went and installed Package Control, you probably need to restart Sublime Text before doing this next bit.
 * Bring up the Command Palette (<kbd>Command</kbd><kbd>Shift</kbd><kbd>P</kbd> on OS X, <kbd>Ctrl</kbd><kbd>Shift</kbd><kbd>P</kbd> on Linux/Windows).
 * Select "Package Control: Install Package" (it'll take a few seconds)
 * Type and select "LSL" when the list appears.

Package Control will automatically keep LSL/OSSL Bundle up to date with the latest version.

### Using Git

Alternatively, if you are a git user, you can install the plugin and keep up to date by cloning the repo directly into your `Packages` directory in the Sublime Text application settings area.

You can locate your Sublime Text `Packages` directory by using the menu item `Preferences -> Browse Packages...`.

While inside the `Packages` directory, clone the plugin repository using the command below:

    git clone https://github.com/Makopo/sublime-text-lsl LSL

### Download Manually

* Download the files using the GitHub [\*.zip](https://github.com/makopo/sublime-text-lsl/archive/master.zip) or [\*.tar.gz](https://github.com/makopo/sublime-text-lsl/archive/master.tar.gz) download options.
* Unzip the files and rename the folder to `LSL`.
* Copy the folder to your Sublime Text `Packages` directory.

Thank you so much!

The GitHub repository does show a README file, but it's in .md format, with which I'm unfamiliar, and which appears virtually unreadable in Notepad. Even now there's no README file in my installation folder after installing the LSL addon. And I did try the search in the package list, but I guess I typed in lower case, and got a huge list of entries that included the letters L, S and L but mostly separated by other letters, so that may be why I missed "LSL". And who'd've thought that "selecting =BB= LSL" actually meant "selecting LSL".

.md files are "Markdown" files. They're human-readable plain-text files with some special formatting (such as creating hyperlinks with [this syntax](example.com).) It should definitely be readable in notepad, or Sublime Text itself.

That said, I'm using Sublime Text 3 and also can't find the Builder's Brewery version. But last I checked, it's not up to date with current LSL functions/constants anyway. I would recommend a package called just "LSL", I have version 2.6.3 from github.com/Makopo/sublime-text-lsl (installed through Install Package, it works with Sublime Text 2 & 3).

Okay, I just upgraded to Sublime Text 4113.  I am getting the color-coding for LSL items but not the syntax help.  I see two options on GitHub.  Before I fumble around in the dark too much, does anyone have a recommendation?  Both options are several years old.

I have the Makopo already installed in my Sublime 4113, but some functionality is lost from prior versions of Sublime.  Perhaps I should roll back?

Windows Defender repeatedly flagged that as "a severe and deadly virus infection!!!", but I'm sure that's not true, so I told it twice to "allow item on computer". (Once wasn't enough. With Windows, it rarely is. 😕 ) After installation, Sublime Text now has syntax highlighting and function argument suggestions for LSL. Cool! I was using Notepad++, but LSL isn't among the languages it supports.
