And there’s no vendor lock-in which would otherwise make it too difficult or risky to switch between platforms when the need arises.

Okay so I was trying to upgrade to the latest version of Hugo today on macOS and didn’t have the time nor the patience to read man brew again.
tldr brew didn’t show how to install a specific version of a formula so I did what any reasonable person would do and read Jake Trent’s
downgrading post so I knew how to go back after an upgrade.
Then I ran a brew upgrade hugo to get the latest Hugo version…
Sublime Text with
plenary talk from Paul Irish, I immediately began looking for ways to incorporate it into my workflow. And now, after having used it for over 8 months in my day-to-day work, I wanted to share a quick primer for those who want to amp up CoffeeScript coding with Sublime Text too.
