In this environment, we will use c++ language. So, let's begin setting up by installing homebrew.๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Go to Tools > Build Systems > New Build System.

  • Copy the code from C++17.sublime-build and paste it ther and save it by any name.

  "selector" : "source.c",
  "shell": true,
  "working_dir" : "$file_path"
