Line Ending Selector package

status bar tile

This is an Atom package that displays the current line ending type of a file: CRLF (Windows), LF (Unix), or Mixed (both). It also lets you change the line ending of a file.

To Use

When the package is activated it will show the current line ending of the file in the right side of the status-bar. If a new file is created the line ending will start with the system default: CRLF for Windows, LF for Mac and Linux, and CR for old-style Mac files. If a file contains multiple line-ending types it will display Mixed.

Changing a File's Line Ending

You can click the line ending in the status-bar to open a modal with the line ending options. Selecting a different line ending will change each line of the file in the active editor.

Line Endings

  • LF is "\n"
  • CRLF is "\r\n"

Note: Because the CR line ending style is not used in any modern operating system, this package only supports converting from CR line endings not to it.
