How to remove a package in sublime text 2


I would like to remove and/or deactivate the Emmet package in Sublime Text 2.

Should I just remove the Emmet directory or what is the typical workflow for removal of a package?

The Best Answer is


If you installed with package control, search for "Package Control: Remove Package" in the command palette (accessed with Ctrl+Shift+P). Otherwise you can just remove the Emmet directory.

If you wish to use a custom caption to access commands, create Default.sublime-commands in your User folder. Then insert something similar to the following.

        "caption": "Package Control: Uninstall Package",
        "command": "remove_package"

Of course, you can customize the command and caption as you see fit.

Just wanted to add, that after you remove the package in question you might also need to check to see if it's listed in the list of packages in the following area and manually remove its listing:

Preferences>Package Settings>Package Control>Settings - User

    "auto_upgrade_last_run": null,
        "Package Control",

In my instance, my trial period for "Sublimerge" had run out and I would get a popup every time I would start Sublime Text 2 saying:

"The package specified, Sublimerge, is not available"

I would have to close the event window out before being able to do anything in ST2.

But in my case, even after successfully removing the package through package control, I still received a event window popup message telling me "Sublimerge" wasn't available. This didn't make any sense as I had successfully removed the package.

It wasn't until I found this "auto_upgrade_last_run" file and manually removed the "Sublimerge" entry and saved my edit, did the message go away.
