How to open Sublime Text in command line with subl on Mac OS?

I have tried to setup Sublime Text 3 so I could run it on my new Mac from terminal just typing subl . but all the when I wanted to make the symlink I was getting this error: ln: /usr/local/bin/subl: No such file or directory  all the time.

The problem is that I had no bin directory on that path. So to fix that you need to do the following:

cd /usr/local
sudo mkdir bin

Now we have that bin folder on /usr/local/bin path and now we can create the link using:

Sublime Text 3

sudo ln -s /Applications/Sublime\ /usr/local/bin/subl

Sublime Text 2

sudo ln -s /Applications/Sublime\ Text\ /bin/local/bin/subl

Exit the terminal and start it again and you should be able to use subl . to open all files in current folder in sublime text for editing.
