A shadow is now added when required to separate the minimap from the buffer

Project based snippets

n00ge 7 years ago • updated by Bsienn Khan 2 years ago 1
A lot of times I have reusable code that relates only to a specific project and would love to create snippets for it but don't want to muddy up the snippet pool for all projects. It would be useful to have a way to create project based snippets.

Add ftp support

Just like in notepad++ or aptana. Many developers work on remote servers and current ftp plugin is so time consuming... Please!

Integrate with Clang/libclang for C/C++

codex 6 years ago • updated by Rocco 5 years ago 5
The holy grail of C/C++ text editors is to integrate with Clang/libclang and parse the code the way the compiler does--by actually compiling the code.  This would enable extremely expressive syntax highlighting, continuous build error reporting, and full refactoring, without having to maintain one's own parser.

I have two files I want to compare opened in a two column layout and want them to scroll synchronously so that the same lines are shown in each column.

Replicate close tab behaviour from Chrome

Anders Ingemann 6 years ago • updated by Ronald Jett 5 years ago 11
Closing tabs should work the same way as it does in Google Chrome.
Before you say anything: I am not talking about moving the tabs to the title bar like this post suggests.
The cool thing about the tab closing behaviour is, that the tabs only resize once you leave the tab area. If they all have the same size, the cursor is directly beneath the next close button, once you have closed a tab.
There is a nice blog entry about why Chromes tab closing behaviour is really nice, so I think I will just leave it at that and post the link.
(Maybe this could also be implemented for the "Open files" area? This way the files don't move under your cursor when you are opening multiple files.)

Copy/Move files in a sidebar

V B 6 years ago • updated by Ian Maddox 1 year ago 5
Sidebar file actions are limited to Delete/Rename for some reason. One of the most common tasks when working with projects is rearranging files or folders inside your project directory. Any time I need to quickly move files between folders, I can do it via fast sidebar drag-and-drop in pretty much ANY IDE or programmer editor (like Textmate). Except for ST2, for all its other niceties. Every time I need to copy or move a file I have to take detour into Finder which is VERY frustrating.

This is pretty much THE only missing feature preventing me from buying the product. I'd guess this is a showstopper not only for me but for many other people considering lack of this essential feature as a sign of product immaturity, to put it simply.

Haml Javascript syntax highlighting

Haml highlighting works great but as soon as you put a :javascript block in haml it doesn't highlight the javascript at all.  

Drag and drop text editing

It's handy to be able to drag and drop to move/copy blocks of text.

Go to the python console and type "import ctypes" in build 2139 and you'll get:

>>> import ctypes
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
