Indentation level setting (different from tab size)

David Capello 6 years ago • updated by User______ 11 months ago 10
Add some options to specify the indentation level (which is different from tab_size):
  • indentation_size/indent_level (integer): number of spaces to use to indent code, which is not the same as "tab_size"
  • compress_spaces_with_tabs_on_indentation (boolean): to specify that spaces should be converted to tabs when you reach a certain level of indentation (e.g. 8 spaces compressed to 1 tab if tab_size=8)

Sidebar icons and fitt's law

Richard Hurt 7 years ago • updated by Jamie Webb 6 years ago 2
Opening a folder in the sidebar is fairly tedious and requires you to click in just the right place. Making the triangles bigger or allowing the filename to be a target would help quite a bit. Keyboard commands to open/close folders would be handy as well.

Tidy code formatting

Daniel Blanchard 6 years ago • updated by Brian Grinter 5 years ago 3
One thing that I really miss from TextMate (and a lot of other editors) is the ability to tidy up code so that it all corresponds to a standard format.

For example, I currently have some really terribly formatted HTML I'd like to be able to have automatically indented and broken up into lines like HTMLTidy, and it'd be nice if it was possible to do that from inside ST2.

Improve Open Recent on OS X

aristidesfl 6 years ago • updated by Reinout Roels 4 years ago 15
Open Recent doesn't work as expected and doesn't integrate well with the system.






Somethings don't work as expected, others are broken and it doesn't look the same. Here is a screenshot from TextMate:




Some of the issues I find, besides the looks, are:

- Every file appears in the list. Even files opened thru the sidebar or go to file palete. This is not desirable. Only opened folders and files which don't belong to any of the folders in the sidebar should be in that list.

- The list isn't accessible by other applications. People using Quicksilver or Launchbar can't open directly recent files/folders 


Without knowing anything from Sublime Text 2 implementation, I risk to say, using the default OS X API's to provide this functionality would probably fix these issues.

Many plugins depend on the quick panel to work. The availabitliy of the quick panel soon would help with the porting efforts.

Update the python embedded interpreter to 2.7

Norman Casagrande 6 years ago • updated 6 years ago 0
SublimeText should upgrade the python embedded interpreter to 2.7.

Since popular plugins such as SublimeLinter relies on the embedded interpreter, they cannot handle syntax that has been introduced in 2.7 such as set comprehensions. 

See https://github.com/Kronuz/SublimeLinter/issues/13 for instance.

Auto close tags after you type >

Thodoris Tsiridis 6 years ago • updated by Drew Betts 4 years ago 12
It would be great to auto close tags after you type the > of the opening tag. So when you type <span> immediately it closes the tag, and the cursor stays inside the tag.

I would really like to see ftp and ssh (sftp) remote file access and editing

Patrick Thurmond 6 years ago • updated by Sannyasin Brahmanathaswami 4 years ago 3
Sublime could really use an ftp/sftp explorer to remotely edit files.

Add bookmarks support

Metin Amiroff 7 years ago • updated by Cees Timmerman 2 years ago 8
Ability to add bookmarks to lines would make it easy and fast to get to predefined places within code.

Keyboard shortcuts would be F2 for adding a bookmark, and various combinations with Shift and Ctrl for walking between them.
