Text Formatting

Adds text-formatting tricks to Sublime Text. Mostly for PEP8 formatting.


  1. Using Package Control, install "TextFormatting"


  1. Open the Sublime Text 3 Packages folder

    • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 3/Packages/
    • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 3/Packages/
    • Linux: ~/.Sublime Text 3/Packages/
  2. clone this repo

  3. Install keymaps for the commands (see Example.sublime-keymap for my preferred keys)


text_formatting_maxlength: Wraps text to maxlength (default: 80) characters. Select a bunch of docstrings or README content and it will not just warp lines, but it will also combine lines that are too short, so you can with aplomb and reformat when you're done.

Also works with comments. Lines that have # or // are considered part of the "indent", and so they'll be removed and re-added.

text_formatting_prettify_json: Select some gnarly JSON and this command will make it well formatted.

text_formatting_line_numbers: Just prints the current line number under the cursor.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
