AsciiDoc Package for SublimeText 3

This package provides more complete and up-to-date syntax highlighting, snippets and other goodies for AsciiDoc editing in SublimeText 3.




  • Asterisks (strong), underscores (emphasis), backticks (monospaced), English quotation marks, and Czech quotation marks are autopaired and will wrap selected text.
    • If you start an empty pair and hit backspace, both elements are deleted.
    • If you start an empty asterisks pair and hit Space or Tab, the right element is deleted (because you probably wanted to start a list, not a strong text).
  • At the end of a (un)ordered list item, pressing Enter will automatically insert the new list item “bullet.”
    • Pressing Enter on the blank list item will remove it.
    • Pressing Tab on the blank list item, or selected item(s), will increase nesting level and indent it.
    • Pressing Shift Tab on the blank list item, or selected item(s), will decrease nesting level and unindent it.
    • You can disable indentation of list items in your settings file.
  • At the end of a callouts list item, pressing Enter will automatically insert the new list item with incremented number.
    • Pressing Enter on the blank list item will remove it.

  • Displays document and section titles in the local symbol list (Ctrl R / Cmd R) and the global symbol list (Ctrl Shift R / Cmd Shift R).
    • In the local symbol list, titles are nicely indented.
    • In the global symbol list, titles will start with =, so you will know they belong to AsciiDoc files at a glance. Also they will be on top of the list because of the presedence of =.
  • Defines comment markers, so you can use default commands to comment and uncomment lines of text.
  • Provides completions for attributes (built-in and locally defined) and cross references (local anchors and titles).


Note: If you have installed the AsciiDoc package, then you should remove it, or manually assign .adoc extension to the Asciidoctor plugin.

Package Control

The easiest way to install this plugin is to use the Package Control plugin.

  1. Install Package Control, if you don’t have it already.
  2. Open the Command Palette (Ctrl Shift P, or Cmd Shift P), type “Install package” and hit Enter.
  3. Search for “Asciidoctor” and hit Enter.


You can also install this plugin manually from GitHub if you want, although Package Control automates just that.

  1. Go to your Packages subdirectory under the ST3’s data directory:

    • OS X: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 3/Packages/
    • Linux: ~/.config/sublime-text-3/Packages/
    • Windows: %APPDATA%\Sublime Text 3\Packages\
  2. Clone this repository here into subdirectory Asciidoctor:

     git clone Asciidoctor
  3. Restart SublimeText.


The syntax definition is based on AsciiDoc-TextMate-2.tmbundle by Matt Neuburg.

Most of the commands, keymaps and some text in this readme are based on (or inspired by) MarkdownEditing package.


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
