By default, Sublime text will give you indentation guide lines that are all the same colour. This is helpful but can become a little confusing when you get 4-5 levels deep. A class example I always find myself is below. Is the
.getting div inside
.row or is it a sibling?
Well, an easy fix to this is to turn on Fleece GreaterGood Ribbon Fleece Ribbon Booties GreaterGood Ribbon GreaterGood Pink Pink Pink GreaterGood Fleece Booties Booties Fleece Pink Ribbon “draw_active” setting for “indent_guide_options”:
By Default, sublime already has “draw_normal” turn on for you, but we need to set it again so we do not overwrite it. You can put the code below in

Settings - User:
"indent_guide_options": [ "draw_normal", "draw_active" ],
This will turn on highlighting of the active indentation guide as well as the stacked, or parent, indentation guides.
Right away, I’m able to visually see that
.getting is nested inside

The colour of the guides completely depends on the theme you are using. You are able to style the default guide, the active guide and the stacked guide. I’ve updated my theme Black Vegas U E Initial and Lillybee Gold Rainboots R65xwpng8 to use blue, yellow and light blue respectively.
