How to show full file path in the status bar or title bar in Sublime and Visual Studio Code

You can see that the full file path is being show at the top title bar.

If you feel that you want to show the full file paths in your favorite editors - Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code, follow the simple steps below:

Sublime Text (on a Mac):

Goto Sublime Text -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "show_full_path": true
}

Visual Studio Code (on a Mac):

Goto Visual Studio, Code -> Preferences -> Settings and add the following:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong}"
}

As a small tweak, i added the following into my visual studio title, as it allows any custom string:

{
    "window.title": "${activeEditorLong} - work hard, play harder"
}

Now you can see the full path of the files in the top title bar.

Installation of rvm erroring out in Catalina - Ruby 2.3.x - How to solve them?

If you had recently updated your macOS to Catalina and then faced problem with installing certain versions of ruby because of random error, pls try the following.
If you are getting the following error, while doing a rvm install
Error running '__rvm_make -j8',
Try the following:
Possiblility is that because of openssl 1.1. OpenSSL 1.1 is not compatible with the ruby compilation during the rvm install.
First install openssl 1.0 using macports
$ sudo port install openssl10
Now install (reinstall) the ruby using rvm with openssl pointing to the macports version
$ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/openssl-1.0/pkgconfig rvm reinstall 2.3.7 --with-openssl-lib=/opt/local/lib/openssl-1.0 --with-openssl-include=/opt/local/include/openssl-1.0
Just ensure that the openssl from macports is installed into /opt/local/lib/openssl-1.0
Hope this helps.
