How to trim whitespace on save in Sublime Text

When you use git with other developers together you maybe want to trim all the whitespace at the end of every line. So when you hit return or enter with some indenting and you save the file git will see the whitespaces as a new commit. You probably don’t want that, so you can automatically trim the whitespace on save in Sublime Text.

Go to SublimeText > Preferences > User Settings and add the following line:

{
  ...
  "trim_trailing_white_space_on_save": true
}

Works for Sublime Text version 2 and 3. Enjoy!

Happy coding! – Found a mistake or a typo? Please submit a PR to my GitHub-repo.
