Support Python functions within regex replace strings

Joel Thornton 7 years ago • updated by Jonathan Cross 7 years ago 2
Let us embed simple Python expressions in the ST2 search-and-replace "replace with" box that would let us perform transformations on captured text groups when using regular expression matching. 

A syntax looking something like this might work well:

Search regex: (\w+)
Replace with: ${$1.upper()}

In this example ST2 would recognize a special pattern of 
${PYTHON_FUNCTION}
and implicitly give $n the string value of the corresponding capture group within the function.

This approach could open up some very interesting possibilities for doing regex substitution ...

${ int($1) + 1 }
${ max($1, $2) }
${ import re; re.sub('foo', 'bar', $1) if 'foo' in $1 else 'cheezburger' }
... ad inf.

task-focused interface (like eclipse mylyn)

Robert Kasanicky 7 years ago • updated by Eugene Bezludny 3 years ago 1
As an eclipse user I really miss the Mylyn functionality (quick demo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEyjpDrHCjc)

In my mind a basic task-focused interface would cover:
1. task creation/import - I can define local tasks and there's an API for writing connectors that retrieve tasks from remote issue trackers
2. every task carries it's own persistent context (primarily which files are open) and when I activate a task the context is restored

Ability to disable/hide scroll bar(s)

Jan Bader 8 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 6 years ago 4
Please add the ability to hide the scroll bar(s). 

I barely use them, since it slows me down to use the mouse and if I use the mouse, i usually use the mousewheel.

Also, the vertical scrollbar is redundant with the minimap.
Answer

This can be done by setting the overlay_scroll_bars global setting to "enabled".


This was added in 2091

Function parameter auto-complete

Caleb Morris 8 years ago • updated by Bruno Lemos 7 years ago 1
When auto completing a function pop up a small off-set message of the parameter inputs.
ex: foo( int a, real b ); // declared above
when foo auto-completed "foo(" is put and a message shows "foo( int, int )"

Paste (HTML) formatted content from clipboard

Werchter 8 years ago • updated by EHLOVader 8 years ago 1
An option to paste formatted text from clipboard. For example, the Visual Studio productivity power tools copies code in both plain text and HTML format (syntax colored) to the clipboard
In SublimeText (and I think almost in every text editor), you can only paste the plain text version. However, I would love to be able to paste the HTML formatted text (text including the HTML tags).
So essentially as MS-Word like "Paste special" functionality.

Better handling of huge files

n00ge 8 years ago • updated by Jon Skinner 7 years ago 9
When handling large sql files (25k lines and up) it takes a while (12 seconds+) to open the file and manipulate. Editing is also quite slow.

I'm not expecting miracles, but is there anything that can be done here? Maybe look at the file size and don't apply syntax highlighting initially for x mb size files and up?
Answer
Jon Skinner 8 years ago

This was fixed in 2091.


The SQL grammar file had a degenerate regex that could cause significant slowdowns.

Bundle python ssl module

Will Bond 8 years ago • updated by Julien Bouquillon 7 years ago 10
It would be nice to be able to pull data from web servers that use SSL certs. From what I can tell, urllib2 needs the python ssl module to be able to download from https:// urls.

Set font size per pane

Joel Thornton 8 years ago 0
Allow the user to persistently change the font size independently for each pane in the UI. For example, the user should be able to use a smaller font size for the console pane than their main text buffer.

Add Sublime Text 2 to the Ubuntu repositories

It would be nice if you could add Sublime Text 2 to the Ubuntu package repositories so everyone can just install it using apt-get or the Ubuntu Software Center.

Duplicate file from folder context menu

Kelly Banman 8 years ago • updated by Bruce Pieterse 8 years ago 1
I'd like to be able to right-click on a file in the project sidebar and duplicate the file.

And instead of just making a new file called "somefile_copy.php", show the rename panel, allowing the user to specify the new filename straight away.

"Find in selection" shouldn't be the default

Rob Speer 8 years ago • updated by Charlie 2 years ago 13
Finding text inside my selection is never what I want to do, and yet it happens by default if anything is selected.

This makes me think that text doesn't exist in my code, when it actually does.

It's particularly bad because if I've just searched for something else, the result is *selected* and I have to clear the selection before I can proceed!

Ability to set bookmarks by clicking on gutter

Hongli Lai 8 years ago • updated by Joseph Huckaby 6 years ago 4
I set bookmarks very often so that I can easily switch back and forth between two or three related places in the code. It would be nice if I can set bookmarks by clicking on the gutter (the place that shows line numbers). TextMate allows this: if I click on the gutter it will show a star on that line and that line is bookmarked.

API support for adding custom items to the sidebar

Leon Bogaert 7 years ago • updated by David Mair Spiess 7 years ago 1
I was searching for a ftp/sftp plugin just like Zend Studio 5.5 / Notepad++ etc. I stumbled upon this thread: http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5846

Because it isn't yet possible for a plugin to add custom items to the sidebar such a plugin can't be created.

An ARM port so that sublime text will be able to be used on platforms such as Beaglebone and the new Raspberry Pi.

m2432432 7 years ago • updated by Fredrik Ehnbom 7 years ago 1
Sublime Text looks like the perfect editor for something like the Raspberry Pi. I use it considerably on my desktop and laptop, and it would be great to be able to use it on my other platforms as well.
