Bracket Highlighter matches a variety of brackets such as: [], (), {}, "", '', <tag></tag>, and even custom brackets.

This was originally forked from pyparadigm's SublimeBrackets and SublimeTagmatcher (both are no longer available). I forked this to fix some issues I had and to add some features I had wanted. I also wanted to improve the efficiency of the matching.

Moving forward, I have thrown away all of the code and have completely rewritten the entire code base to allow for a more flexibility, faster, and more feature rich experience.


Feature List

  • Customizable to highlight almost any bracket.
  • Customizable bracket highlight style.
  • High visibility bracket highlight mode.
  • Selectively disable or enable specific matching of tags, brackets, or quotes.
  • Selectively use an allowlist or blocklist for matching specific tags, brackets, or quotes based on language.
  • When bound to a shortcut, allow option to show line count and char count between match in the status bar.
  • Highlight basic brackets within strings.
  • Works with multi-select.
  • Configurable custom gutter icons.
  • Toggle bracket escape mode for string brackets (regex|string).
  • Bracket plugins that can jump between bracket ends, select content, remove brackets and/or content, wrap selections with brackets, swap brackets, swap quotes (handling quote escaping between the main quotes), fold/unfold content between brackets, toggle through tag attribute selection, select both the opening and closing tag name to change both simultaneously, etc.
