I am using Sublime Text Editor widely and prefer to use the same for all the Projects. But since Salesforce Developer page referenced me to use Eclipse I started using Eclipse exclusively for Salesforce Development and Sublime for the rest. Today I came across the cool Mavensmate plugin (I saw this UI in several Salesforce videos, but didn't know its Mavensmate) and tried to use it with Sublime.

  • Installed Mavensmate plugin
  • Added workspace in \Sublime Text 3\Packages\User\mavensmate.sublime-settings
  • Added Proxy settings in \Sublime Text 3\Packages\User\mavensmate.sublime-settings

But while adding existing project it errors as follow:

[Errno 1] _ssl.c:510: error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol

Everything works fine in Eclipse so there is nothing wrong with network connection or Proxy. I am not sure what I am missing here.

  • I believe that you are not using the latest version and the message you are receiving is because of tls1.0 being disabled. Do a google search for mavensmate github and get the latest from there.

    I believe this question should be closed out. I know it doesn't have an answer and it was recently bumped to the home page, but Mavensmate has reached its end of life and the original creator is urging users to move on to the official Salesforce tools. salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/270803/…

If you're simply adding an existing project to Mavensmate, here's the procedure:


  1. Clone your repo inside your mm_workspace
  2. Open sublimetext
  3. Click File > Open Folder
  4. In your sidebar (make sure your side bar is visible. toggle it using Ctrl+K,Ctrl+B), right click on the root folder, click MavensMate > Create MavensMate Project...
  5. Your mavensmate app will open up. Just press the big blue button in the upper right that says "Create MavensMate Project".
