Opens a file (HTML) in the specified browser (Firefox) and changes the filename (C:\inetpub\wwwroot...) to an URL (http://localhost/...)


Put the files into a directory in your {sublime}\Data\Packages\ folder


Consider editing a HTML file and you want to open that file in your webbrowser. Well, that's easy but you want to open the file as a URL. You have edited it in the folder of your webserver application (C:\inetpub\wwwroot... for example) and it should open it as the URL http://localhost/....

This package does the right thing. All is done in the To customize you can change the following:

  • Change the replace path: url = url.replace('C:/inetpub/wwwroot', 'http://localhost'). In detail:
  • Change the path to your webserver (here: C:\inetpub\wwwroot) to the path where your webpages are.
  • Change the host (here: http://localhost) that replaces this part in the webbrowser.
  • Change the call of your favorite webbrowser (here: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe").
  • Change the shortcut: The package defines a keyboard shortcut CTRL-F11 (like in Eclipse) to open the file in the webbrowser. You can change/remove the shortcut in the Default (Windows).sublime-keymap file in the package itself. I haven't set any keymaps for Linux or OSX.
