Toggle a file in Sublime as readonly

Toggle readonly state of buffer from context menu for Sublime Text 2 and 3 (beta)


Install this repository via Package Control Or put the files into a directory in your {sublime}\Data\Packages\ folder


You have a context-menu on:

  • the tab
  • the open files
  • and direct in the edit area.

If you toggle the readonly, the status bar says: "Buffer {buffername} is set readonly." and you cannot make any changes.

If you toggle again the status bar says: "Buffer {buffername} is writeable again." and the file should be editable again.

This tool doesn't change the file properties in the filesystem. It only changes the readonly attribute of the current view.
