Origami is a new way of thinking about panes in Sublime Text 2 and 3: you tell Sublime Text where you want a new pane, and it makes one for you. It works seamlessly alongside the built-in layout commands.
Ordinarily one uses the commands under View>Layout, or if one is quite intrepid a custom keyboard shortcut can be made to give a specific layout, but both of these solutions were unsatisfactory to me. Perhaps they were to you too! That's what this plugin is for.

Origami is driven by keyboard shortcuts. By default, these keyboard shortcuts are all two-stage, and are hidden behind
command+k. First press
command+k, then press the arrow keys with modifiers:
- no modifiers: travel to an adjacent pane
shift: carry the current file to the destination
option): clone the current file to the destination
command: create an adjacent pane
command+shift: destroy an adjacent pane
These keyboard shortcuts are designed to make it really easy to modify the layout of your editor.
Additionally, Origami allows one to zoom the current pane, making it take up a large portion of the window. As above, first press
command+k, then press:
command+z: Zoom the current pane so it takes up 90% of the screen (the fraction is changeable in the keybindings)
shift+command+z: Unzoom: equally space all panes
It is also possible to edit the pane sizes. After
command+r: Adjust the top and bottom separator
command+c: Adjust the left and right separator
In the keybindings you can change a
mode which specifies which separation lines you want to edit.
ALLmeans all horizontal (or vertical) separators
RELEVANTmeans all horizontal (or vertical) separators which intersect the column (row) of the selected row.
NEARESTmeans top and bottom (or left and right) separators. This is the default
BEFOREmeans top (or left) separator
AFTERmeans bottom (or right) separator
(Note: Windows and Linux use
ctrl instead of
You can have Origami automatically zoom the active pane by setting
auto_zoom_on_focus in your Origami user preferences. Set it to
true for the default zoom, or set it to a user-definable fraction of the screen, such as
Origami can also automatically close a pane for you once you've closed the last file in it. Just set
auto_close_empty_panes to true in the Origami preferences.
