api to add stuff to sidebar

Dmitry Afanasyev 6 years ago • updated by Mauricio Lopez T. 6 years ago 2
It would be nice to have API that can add stuff to sidebar. 
For example, I want to make a plugin that display Ruby on Rails projects not by its directory structure but in logical one, i.e. templates under controllers, etc
I thing it would be useful for many kinds of plugins such as VCS systems, FTP plugins and more

Option to display a subtle border around the minimap to help distinguish between the content and the minimap (same as in Sublime Text 1)

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.

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 7 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.

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.)

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.

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