.on_load() for modelines and settings will be set
accordingly. Settings will apply only to the buffer declaring them.
How to Declare Modelines
Modelines must be declared at the top or the bottom of source code files with one of the following syntaxes:
# sublime: option_name value # sublime: option_name value; another_option value; third_option value
# is the default comment character. Use the corresponding
single-line comment character for your language. When there isn't a concept of
comment, the default comment character must be used.
How to Define Comment Characters in Sublime Text
SublimeModelines finds the appropriate single-line comment character by inspecting
shellVariables preference, which must be defined in a
file. To see an example of how this is done, open
Many packages giving support for programming languages already include this, but
you might need to create a
.tmPreferences file for the language you're working
with if you want SublimeModelines to be available.
If the option's value contains a semicolon (
;), make sure it isn't followed
by a blank space. Otherwise it will be interpreted as a multioption separator.
For some common cases, no directly settable option exists (for example, a setting to specify a syntax). For such cases, Sublime Modelines provides non-standard accessors as a stop-gap solution.
Sets the syntax to the specified .tmLanguage file.
