Note: Sublime Text 3 beta now supported!
Ever get to the end (middle?) of a day of coding only to find your window littered with tabs that are nearly impossible to search through visually? Find yourself rage-quitting all your tabs in disgust and starting over? No? Just me? Ok.
With this plugin, a simple keystroke
ctrl + alt + w will close all tabs whose file has not been modified in the last 30 minutes (to change this interval, see Preferences > Packages > TidyTabs > Settings). It will only close tabs in the background – so files that are open and active in your window won't be closed. Likewise, it will not close files with unsaved changes.
You can change the key binding in Preferences > Package Settings > TidyTabs > Key Bindings.
You can also configure the plugin to automatically close old tabs each time you save a file. To enable this, go to Preferences > Package Settings > TidyTabs > Settings and set
// Automatically run tidytabs after a file is saved "tidytabs_run_on_post_save": true,
Another configuration option is the threshold. Setting this to a number greater than 0 will ensure that TidyTabs only runs when the number of tabs in that view is greater than the threshold.
// If this is set and greater than 0, tidytabs will only run if // the number of tabs is greater than the threshold setting. "tidytabs_threshold": 5
The easiest way to install is via the excellent Sublime Package Manager. Once Package Manager is installed, bring up the commands menu (
Command + Shift + P on Mac,
Control + Shift + P on Windows or Linux), then type "Package Control" to filter the commands list. Select the "Package Control: Install Package" command, then find and install the TidyTabs plugin.
Clone or download this repo to your Packages folder.
