Sublime Text 2 Plugin: The Incrementor

A Sublime Text 2 Plugin that can generate a sequence of numbers using search and replace.

There is a Sublime Text 3 port available here.

Example (Before):

10. Bob
12. Larse
15. Billy

Find: [0-9]+\. Replace: \i\.

Example (After):

1. Bob
2. Larse
3. Billy

You can also take start and step arguments \i(start,step) in parenthesis.

Example (Before):

10. Bob
12. Larse
15. Billy

Find: [0-9]+\. Replace: \i(10,10)\.

Example (After):

10. Bob
20. Larse
30. Billy

Lastly, The Incrementor also supports negative steps! \i(start,-step)

Example (Before):

10. Bob
12. Larse
15. Billy

Find: [0-9]+\. Replace: \i(100,-10)\.

Example (After):

100. Bob
90. Larse
80. Billy

Using

Use the keybinding to prompt for your find and replace.

Windows: [Ctrl + G, Ctrl + R] Mac OSX: [Super + G, Super + R] Linux: [Ctrl + G, Ctrl + R]

Installing

Use Github here or Sublime Package Control

Todo

  • Replace based on order of selection as well as their direction. (Difficult)
  • Scroll to matching pattern like sublime's default find window. (Easy)
  • Allow prepending 0s to the initial number. (001, 002, 003, 004, etc.) (Intermediate)
  • Add number of replaced items in statusbar after completion. (Intermediate)
