This is a super-simple, super-basic Sublime Text 3 setup. It goes through downloading of the application, installing Package Control and a few basic Packages. It does not, go through a ton of "How-To"'s.
You can download from the Sublime Text download page. Once you have downloaded the appropriate version for your OS, install it. You're not an idiot so I'm sure you can do that without my step-by-step instructions.
The first thing you will want to install is Package Control. Follow the on-page instructions to get it setup and now you are ready to go to town.
Launch Sublime Text 3 and click
Package Control. Then on the pop up list, type "install" or click
Package Control: Install Package". Another popup appears. This popup contains all the packages that are available to install. Anything you type here will act as a filter for the packages. For instance, if you type "angular", then all the packages that have that word in them will show up. Click on the item to install it.
You can see a list of all the Packages sorted by popularity, stars, etc on the Package Control homepage. Some of the packages I currently use:
