Can I disable all non-php related packages?


I’m a php developer, so I’m highly unlikely to ever need non-PHP-related packages. I’m wondering if it’s safe to disable them, or they may be needed for the functionality of the text editor?

Here’s the list of packages I want to disable: ActionScript, ASP, C#, C++, Clojure, D, Erlang, Go, Graphviz, Groovy, Haskell, LaTeX, Lisp, Lua, Matlab, Objective-C, OCaml, Pascal, Perl, R, Rails, Ruby, Rust, Scala, ShellScript.



To disable a package, you just add them to the ignored_packages list in your User settings. However, none of the packages you mention are likely to cause any noticeable slowdown in either startup time or runtime, because they don’t contain plugins and syntax definitions are cached, so you might as well not bother. You are free to verify this yourself, of course.
