Update: This is now available via Package Control...

Since switching to Sublime I've been using the command line much more.

I've blogged about how to easily access the terminal from within Sublime.

Recently I discovered the Shell-Turtlestein package which makes it even easier to run quick commands.

A quick and simple way to run arbitrary shell commands in Sublime Text 2.

CTRL+SHIFT+C will popup a small prompt for a shell command at the bottom of the Sublime window.

And If you hit CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+C it will launch a terminal window giving you the same functionality as the "Terminal" package mentioned above.

I find this great for doing things like SVN STATUS.

Shell-Turtlestein isn't in Package Control yet but can be found on github here:
