Hello. Hello indeed.

When a barrel’s temperature is close to the threshold (about 75%), it starts radiating its heat to the nearby barrels, thus starting the chain reaction.

WebDev – Sublime Text Plugins

You’ve read it, heard it, and seen it a hundred times before, but I’ll say it again:

Tools are great. – by anonymous

… or something like that. This leads me to the next point:

So here’s the list of my favorite Sublime Text plugins.

  1. Terminal: Quick access to the command line
