Using a text list

Assuming we have selected every ocurence of null and Text Pastry was called by pressing CMD + ALT + N:

Enter a list of words, separated by one space, into the command line:

INPUT SELECT TEXTAREA DIV P A

Text

var a = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var b = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var c = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var d = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var e = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var f = document.getElementsByTagName('null');

Result

var a = document.getElementsByTagName('INPUT');
var b = document.getElementsByTagName('SELECT');
var c = document.getElementsByTagName('TEXTAREA');
var d = document.getElementsByTagName('DIV');
var e = document.getElementsByTagName('P');
var f = document.getElementsByTagName('A');

Using the Clipboard

The same as above, but this time we copy the list of words into our clipboard:

Clipboard Data

INPUT SELECT TEXTAREA DIV P A

Command

Insert this into the input panel:

\p

Text

var a = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var b = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var c = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var d = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var e = document.getElementsByTagName('null');
var f = document.getElementsByTagName('null');

Result

var a = document.getElementsByTagName('INPUT');
var b = document.getElementsByTagName('SELECT');
var c = document.getElementsByTagName('TEXTAREA');
var d = document.getElementsByTagName('DIV');
var e = document.getElementsByTagName('P');
var f = document.getElementsByTagName('A');

Note

This command will use any whitespace as delimiter. If we copy following list, we will get the same result:

INPUT
SELECT
TEXTAREA
DIV
P
A

Clipboard Data - Example 2

Lets assume we want to paste some test data into our code:

71602	White Hall
71603	Pine Bluff
71611	Pine Bluff
71612	White Hall
71613	Pine Bluff
71630	Arkansas City
71631	Banks
71635	Crossett
71638	Dermott
71639	Dumas

Command

This command will tell Text Pastry to split up our clipboard data by using the newline character as separator:

\p(\n)

Text

var a = load('null');
var b = load('null');
var c = load('null');
var d = load('null');
var e = load('null');
var f = load('null');

Result

var a = load('71602	White Hall');
var b = load('71603	Pine Bluff');
var c = load('71611	Pine Bluff');
var d = load('71612	White Hall');
var e = load('71613	Pine Bluff');
var f = load('71630	Arkansas City');

Note

Each line of the clipboard data will be stripped/trimmed, so there won't be any leading spaces. The following list would therefore give us the same result when we use \p(\n) as command:

Data without leading/trailing whitespace

INPUT
SELECT
TEXTAREA
DIV
P
A

is equal to data with leading whitespace:

INPUT
	SELECT
		TEXTAREA
		DIV
	P
A

We can change this behaviour in the <Packages>/Text Pastry/TextPastry.sublime-settings file:

"clipboard_strip_newline": false

From 1 to 3

Start at 1, adding 1 for each selection:

\i

Text

var a = null;
var b = null;
var c = null;

Result

var a = 1;
var b = 2;
var c = 3;

From 1000 to 1300

Start at 1000, adding 100 for each selection:

\i(1000,100)

Text

var a = null;
var b = null;
var c = null;

Result

var a = 1000;
var b = 1100;
var c = 1200;

From 100 to 50

You can also use negative numbers to create a negative sequence:

\i(100,-10)

Text

var a = null;
var b = null;
var c = null;
var d = null;
var e = null;
var f = null;

Result

var a = 100;
var b = 90;
var c = 80;
var d = 70;
var e = 60;
var f = 50;

Insert Nums Syntax

Text Pastry supports the Insert Nums syntax:

1 100 1

Note: The last argument (padding) is optional, negative values are supported.

Text

var a = null;
var b = null;
var c = null;
var d = null;
var e = null;
var f = null;

Result

var a = 1;
var b = 101;
var c = 201;
var d = 301;
var e = 401;
var f = 501;

Insert Nums Syntax - Example 2

5 5 3

Text

var a = null;
var b = null;
var c = null;
var d = null;
var e = null;
var f = null;

Result

var a = 005;
var b = 010;
var c = 015;
var d = 020;
var e = 025;
var f = 030;
