Toggle Quotes

Build Status Dependency Status

Toggle a single-quoted string to a double-quoted string, and vice versa.

(NOTE: Currently unsupported on tab-indented lines. See for more information.)


This is a package for Atom, a hackable text editor for the 21st Century.


Place the cursor within a string and execute the Toggle Quotes: Toggle command to toggle that string between single and double quotes. Only available when using a grammar that supports single-quoted and double-quoted strings, or any other configured string character (e.g. JavaScript, Python, Ruby, etc.).


Command Description
toggle-quotes:toggle Toggles the quote characters used for quoted strings between the configured Quote Characters (' and " by default).


Command Linux OS X Windows
toggle-quotes:toggle Ctrl-" Cmd-" Ctrl-"

Custom keybindings can be added by referencing the above commands. To learn more, visit the Using Atom: Basic Customization or Behind Atom: Keymaps In-Depth sections in the flight manual.


Configuration Key Path Type Default Description
toggle-quotes.quoteCharacters string '" The characters toggle-quotes:toggle toggles between. No whitespace.

You can add language-specific settings for languages with more exotic string delimiters. For example, this setting in your config.cson will add backticks in JavaScript files, but not in other kinds of files:

    quoteCharacters: "\"'`"
