I'm sure most of us know about the following plugins, so please don't include these in your response.

- SuperTab

- NerdTREE

- Surround

- MatchIT

- Snipmate

- NerdCommenter / TComment

- Ack

- Bufexplorer

- Ctrl-P / Command-T

- Syntastic

- Fugitive

A simple description of the plugin and how you use it would be great. Always willing to improve my toolset :)

PS: I've heard a LOT of good things about EasyMotion and Gundo plugins, but haven't really given them a fair shot. If anyone uses them, do let us know.

For those writing a lot of HTML: ZenCoding


On a related note, has anyone tried https://github.com/hayaku/hayaku (available for Sublime Text 2 only at this time)? How does it compare to ZenCoding?

You should now use Emmet http://docs.emmet.io/, since it’s like ZenCoding 2.0. As for Hayaku, it’s CSS oriented and does a great job.

SudoEdit AutoComplPop TagList

btw, you don't wanna miss repeat.vim if you stick with surround.
