  1. Open Sublime Text,
  2. Press Control + Shift + P (or Command + Shift + P if on Mac using macOS) to open Comand Pallete,
    Sublime Package Control - Install Package
    Sublime Package Control - Install Package
  3. Now search: Install Package,
  4. After the Repositories are loaded you will see a search box - look for WordCount,
    Installing Package WordCount
    Installing Package WordCount
  5. After Installation, you should be able to see the word count on the bottom left bar.

You can find the WordCount Package on GitHub: https://github.com/titoBouzout/WordCount
