Parallel Builder for SublimeText 2

It allows you to run more than one build command in Parallel

Once you define your custom Build settings you will be able to run more than one build process at the same time.

This plugin is ideal if you have to compile more than one LESS/SASS file at the same time or to minify your javascript and so on. I suggest you to use it combined with NODEJS and "OnSaveBuild": https://github.com/alexnj/SublimeOnSaveBuild

  • Create you custom builder JSON setting the value of the "target" property to "parallel_builder" (check the following example)
  • Run your Sublime Text2 Builder (Windows: CTRL + B, Mac: Cmd-B)

(To create your custom builder you need to go on Tools -> Build System -> New Build System)

ON OS


{
    
    "working_dir": "${project_path:${folder}}",
    "target" : "parallel_builder",
    
    "cmd": {
            "Js Min":{
                "cmd": ["minifyjs", "path_to_your_js_file.js", ">", "output_path.js"]
            },
            "less file1":{
                "cmd": ["lessc", "path_to_your_LESS_file.less", "output_path.less.css"]   
            },
            "Less file2":{
                "cmd": ["lessc", "path_to_your_LESS_file2.less", "output_path2.less.css"]
            }
    }
    
}

ON WINDOWS


{
    
    "working_dir": "${project_path:${folder}}",
    "target" : "parallel_builder",
    
    "cmd": {
            "Js Min":{
                "cmd": ["minifyjs.cmd", "path_to_your_js_file.js", ">", "output_path.js"]
            },
            "less file1":{
                "cmd": ["lessc.cmd", "path_to_your_LESS_file.less", "output_path.less.css"]   
            },
            "Less file2":{
                "cmd": ["lessc.cmd", "path_to_your_LESS_file2.less", "output_path2.less.css"]
            }
    }
    
}

More Details

Once you set the property "target" to "parallel_builder", you can set the command to run for each item inside the "cmd" node, and also the path to your command script. In the previous example any command is already installed by Npm and set as system environment variables. The name for each cmd node should be a short description of the final task

Known issues

Even each command is executed sequentially I suggest you to run any command in parallel without let them working sequentially on the same files. For these tasks I suggest you to build a GRUNT script https://github.com/cowboy/grunt
