Completions and Snippets
Although, this package includes CFScript completions (
.sublime-completions) and ColdFusion tag completions (API-injected), it's recommended that you create your own custom snippets using code that fits your particular coding style.
To create a new snippet select
Tools > New Snippet... from the Sublime Text menu.
<scope>text.html.cfm - string</scope> for ColdFusion markup snippets and
<scope>source.cfscript - string</scope> for CFScript snippets.
Completions in order of priority are:
- API-injected completions
- words in the current buffer
The following list contains snippets repositories made available by ColdFusion community members:
To install snippets just put the
.sublime-snippet files in your Packages/User folder or sub-folder (to get to your Packages/User folder select
Preferences > Browse Packages... from the Sublime Text 2 menu).
The following themes optimized for ColdFusion are made available by ColdFusion community members and can be installed with Package Control (http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/community)
If you'd like to customize your favorite theme for ColdFusion support, you can use the
entity.name.tag.cf scope in your tmTheme file.
For example the following definition will use the color
#C87551 for all ColdFusion tags:
<dict> <key>name</key> <string>Meta</string> <key>scope</key> <string>meta.tag.block.cf, meta.tag.inline.cf</string> <key>settings</key> <dict> <key>fontStyle</key> <string></string> <key>foreground</key> <string>#C87551</string> </dict> </dict> <!-- this will color ColdFusion tag name --> <dict> <key>name</key> <string>Entity</string> <key>scope</key> <string>entity.name.tag.cf</string> <key>settings</key> <dict> <key>fontStyle</key> <string></string> <key>foreground</key> <string>#C87551</string> </dict> </dict>
You can use Ctrl+Alt+⇧+P to get the scope name at the cursor position for more theme customizing .
To help test the development branch you can install it by dowloading the zip and copying the contents to the Packages/ColdFusion folder.
Alternatively, you can use git to install the ColdFusion package as mentioned above and switch to the development tracking branch using:
