What features will be missing/not working if I use latest stable build (3083)? I don't have license so I can't use dev builds.

I think only the features concerning kodi log should be affected (syntax highlighting, jump-to-source for exceptions)
I want to try skinning related functions, so these are fine for me.
Thanks phil.
No problem. If you like the software then please consider buying it.
I regularly buy software what I use (or use free replacement) and wanted to do same with ST3 .... until I checked price. 70$ is ridiculously high for slightly better text editor. I guess it's fine when you are using it as your main development environment and/or for business, but for writing notes and occasional skinning at home it's too high.
I'm now testing ST3 for few weeks and though multicursor is quite nice feature I didn't find anything else groundbreaking. Maybe I'll reconsider in future, but currently performance/price ratio is quite low for me to buy it. Or maybe I'll return to Notepad++.
no worries, and no need to explain yourself. Wink just a friendly reminder in case you use that software a lot.
Some new features and lot of under-the-hood changes:

features:
- porting of skin sanity checks now almost complete. Also improved some of them. Try out "Check includes", "Check variables" and "Check invalid values" from command palette, all skins I tried had errors which want to get fixed. Wink
- "Display InfoLabels" in command palette (gets value for InfoLabel via JSON-PRC)
- Auto-Check skin when saving. (optional, default is True)
- New tooltip for color tags
- more stuff I probably forgot

under-the-hood:
- correctly detect include references with parameters (new in Isengard)
- correctly detect all file includes by recursively parsing Includes.xml
- full support for skins with several xml folders
- full support for color themes
- some more refactoring
Look very interesting.

For now, I'm using Notepad++ but I will try it.

So I download latest ST3 build (3083), get Indent XML and SublimeKodi from GITHUB, put plugin in Data\Packages sub-directory

I have edit SublimeKodi Settings - Defaults to enable portable mode :

Code:
"kodi_path": "C:\Kodi-14.0\",

"portable_mode": true,

Don't know if I need to set kodi_path to C:\Kodi-14.0\ or C:\Kodi-14.0\portable_data\ (I have try both but I didn't get any kodi command from command palette).

I have edit Preferences / Key bindings - User to add your shortcuts you given in post #1

But I don't have any kodi command :

Or tooltype over string ID :

If you can help me to understand and to set up ST3, it would be great Wink
you need to open the complete addon folder (and save it as a project)
first: File --> Open Folder --> select your addon folder
then: Project --> save project as..

"kodi_path" should point to the Kodi root folder, not the portable_data folder.
Done.

Open C:\Kodi-14.0\portable_data\addons folder, save as project but nothing change Sad

No "Check ..." command, no string from IDs, ...

Do I need to have Kodi running in background (because of JSON-RPC interaction) ?
seems as if the whole plugin is not loaded then.
where did you put the add-on exactly?
path should be C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Sublime Text 3\Packages\SublimeKodi for non-portable ST3.
Complete console output would be useful, too.
...and no, you donĀ“t need Kodi running.
Also, open C:\Kodi-14.0\portable_data\addons\your_addon instead of C:\Kodi-14.0\portable_data\addons\
So for editing your skin (as an exemple), I just have to open aeon nox folder and save it as project.

I'm running ST3 in portable mode on my laptop @ my office. I will install it on my laptop @ home.

correct. if you do not see anything in command palette the problem is something else though. you should at least see "Set Kodi Folder".
I think it's OK now, I have SublimeKodi commands, label in tooltip, ...

Thanks.
