Sublime Text: “ImportError: No module named sublimeplugin” i.e. bad plugin documentation

TLDR: Sublime Text’s plugin Examples page is out of date as of 30th May 2014. Look at “How to Create a Sublime Text 2 Plugin” for proper guidance.

For the popularity that Sublime Text gets, it seems that their plugin documentation has been left by the wayside

Their Plugin Examples page is out of date showing an example for SublimeText 1. I found that out when creating the plugin only to see the following error message in the Sublime Text console (Ctrl+~ in Windows)

ImportError: No module named sublimeplugin

Searching for this error I landed on this forum post which the link to “How to Create a Sublime Text 2 Plugin” from Tuts+ which seems to work.

There seems to be a change from camelCase to snake_case for functions thus all the instructions on the plugin page are incorrect.

Links API References: choose appropriate link for Sublime Text version
