Integrated Terminal in Sublime Text with Terminus Package

I adore Sublime Text, I'm often jumping to other editors to use an integrated terminal but not anymore! A new package called Terminus written by Randy Lai adds support for an integrated terminal panel and a view! I cannot understate how awesome this is! I've been trying to find a package to add terminal support for years! 

Terminus is heavily inspired by TerminalView another Sublime Text package that adds a terminal to a view. 

What I love about Terminus is you can add a toggleable panel or a view. 

Install

To install it simple open Package Control and search for Terminus

Usage

There are default key bindings 

{ "keys": ["alt+`"], "command": "toggle_terminus_panel" }

I prefer to use ctrl+` to toggle you can easily change them with custom key bindings:

This toggles the panel but also opens in the current root folder

{
	"keys": ["ctrl+`"], "command": "toggle_terminus_panel", "args": {
        "config_name": "Default",
        "cwd": "${folder}"
    }
}

I also like to have the option to open Terminus in a view to this time using alt+`

{
	"keys": ["alt+`"], "command": "terminus_open", "args": {
        "config_name": "Default",
        "cwd": "${folder}"
    }
}

For the past 12 years, I’ve been developing applications for the web using mostly PHP. I do this for a living and love what I do as every day there is something new and exciting to learn.

In my spare time, the web development community is a big part of my life. Whether managing online programming groups and blogs or attending a conference, I find keeping involved helps me stay up to date. This is also my chance to give back to the community that helped me get started, a place I am proud to be apart of.

Besides programming I love spending time with friends and family and can often be found together going out catching the latest movie, staying in playing games on the sofa or planning a trip to someplace I’ve never been before.
