Moving from Geany to Sublime Text 3: how to run Python scripts in command prompt?

Super User Asked on January 1, 2022

I’ve been coding in Python 3.6 using the Geany editor for a while. When I run scripts in Geany, a Windows command prompt running Python will pop up and run the script. This I did using the build command python -i "%f" in Geany.

Now I’ve been trying out a different editor: Sublime Text 3. However, I find the in-built console doesn’t work well for my needs, so as with Geany I’d like a Windows command prompt to pop up and run my code. How do I do this in Sublime Text 3?

One Answer

Try this thing out: You might have created the python file in some directory just double click on it. There is one issue with this once the program ends the CMD window closes so try to give enough delay so that you could verify your output like this:

import time

and put the following as your last line

time.sleep(seconds) # put 120 like that i.e. 2 minutes it will wait before closing CMD

Or try this Open CMD and open the directory to your python file using cd to change directory, e: or d: to choose drive cd.. to go back by one step to the parent directory if directed to your directory


will open the python file with the name if the file is on desktop just type python in the cmd.
