branch: master
readme.md

About

This is a fork of agibsonsw's PrintHtml plugin. This plugin allows the exporting of a document in ST2 to an HTML file or to BBCode. It duplicates ST2's theme colors and font styles. You can play with the demo page that has actual html pages generated with this plugin here.

Features

  • Export to HTML using any tmTheme for syntax highlighting
  • Can handle any language supported by ST2
  • Supports bold and italic theme font styles as well
  • Configurable output
  • Format suitable for copying and pasting in emails
  • 2 included tmTheme files for color and grayscale printing (but any can be used)
  • Export only selections (multi-select supported)
  • Export and show highlights (multi-select supported)
  • Toggle gutter on/off in browser view
  • Automatically open browser print dialog (optional)
  • Enable/disable configurable word wrapping
  • Configurable toolbar to appear in the generated webpage

Usage: Exporting HTML

ExportHtml comes with a number of default commands available, but these can be overridden in the settings file. Or you can create commands directly outside of the settings file bound to the command palette, key bindings, or even the menu.

If adding a command to the settings file, it goes under the html_panel setting. These configurations will appear under the Export to HTML: Show Export Menu command palette command.

// Define configurations for the drop down export menu
"html_panel": [
    // Browser print color (selections and multi-selections allowed)
    {
        "Browser Print - Color": {
            "numbers": true,
            "wrap": 900,
            "browser_print": true,
            "multi_select": true,
            "color_scheme": "Packages/ExportHtml/ColorSchemes/Print-Color.tmTheme",
            "style_gutter": false
        }
    }
 ]

The name of the command is the key value, and then you add the parameters you wish to specify. You can use any combination of settings below.

  • numbers (boolean): Display line numbers in the gutter.
  • style_gutter (boolean): Style gutter with theme backgrounds and foregrounds, or just use the default background/foreground. Default is true.
  • multi_select (boolean): If multiple regions are selected in a document, only export what is under those selections. By default only the first selection is recognized. Default is false
  • highlight_selections (boolean): Highlights all selections in HTML output using the themes selection colors. Multi-select option will be ignored if this is set true. Default is false
  • wrap (integer): Define the allowable size in px to wrap lines at. By default wrapping is not used.
  • color_scheme (string): The color scheme (tmTheme) file you would like to use. By default the current color scheme file is used, or the the alternate default color scheme if defined in the setting alternate_scheme.
  • clipboard_copy (boolean): Copy html to the clipboard after generation. Default is false.
  • browser_print (boolean): When opening in the web browser, also open the brower's print dialog. This will be ignored if view_open is true. Default is false.
  • view_open (boolean): Open HTML in a Sublime Text tab instead of the web browser. Default is false.
  • no_header (boolean): Do not display file name, date, and time at the top of the HTML document. Default is false.
  • date_time_format (string): String denoting the format for date and time when displaying header. Please see Python's documentation on time.strftime for detailed info on formatting syntax. Default is "%m/%d/%y %I:%M:%S"
  • show_full_path (boolean): Show full path for filename when displaying header. Default is true
  • save_location (string): Path to save html file. If the file is wanted in the same file as the original, use ".". Otherwise, use the absolute path to where the file is desired. If there is an issue determining where to save the file, or the path does not exist, the OS temp folder will be used. Default is None (use temp folder).
  • time_stamp (string): Configure the time stamp of saved html when using save_location. To remove time stamps, just set to an empty string "". Please see Python's documentation on time.strftime for detailed info on formatting syntax. Default is "_%m%d%y%H%M%S"
  • toolbar (array of strings): Option to display a toolbar with to access features in a generated HTML. This setting is an array of keywords that represent the icons in the toolbar to show. Valid keywords include gutter, print, plain_text, annotation, theme, and wrapping. Toolbar will appear when you mouse over the uppert right corner of the window of the generated html. Default enables all. filter (string): Filters to use on the theme's colors. The string is a sequence of filters separated by ;. The accepted filters are grayscale, invert, sepia, brightness, glow, saturation, hue, and colorize. brightness and saturation requires a float parameter to specify to what magnitude the filter should be applied at. glow requires a float for intensity (usually something like .1 or .2 is sufficient). hue and colorize take a float that represents a degree. hue shifts the hue via the degree given (can accept negative degrees); hues will wrap if they extend past 0 degrees or 360 degrees. Example: "filter": "sepia;invert;brightness(1.1);saturation(1.3);". Default is "".
  • shift_brightness (bool): This setting shifts the entire theme's brightness if a background color's luminace is below the global setting bg_min_lumen_threshold. This was added to solve an issue that I had when copying dark themes into an outlook email; if a html span had a background that was too dark, the foreground would just be white. This allows me to not have to worry about how dark the theme is, and probably serves very little use besides that.

If you wish to bind a command to a key combination etc., the same settings as above can be used.

Example:

{
    "keys": ["ctrl+alt+n"],
    "command": "export_html",
    "args": {
        "numbers": true,
        "wrap": 900,
        "browser_print": true,
        "multi_select": true,
        "color_scheme": "Packages/ExportHtml/ColorSchemes/Print-Color.tmTheme",
        "style_gutter": false
    }
}

When viewing the HTML in your web browser, regardless of the gutter settings, the gutter can be toggled to show or be hidden using the toolbar.

Usage: Exporting BBCode

ExportHtml can also export selected code as BBCode for posting in forums. Exporting BBCode is very similar to exporting HTML code.

If adding a command to the settings file, it goes under the bbcode_panel setting. These configurations will appear under the Export to BBCode: Show Export Menu command palette command.

// Define configurations for the drop down export menu
"bbcode_panel": [
    {
        "To Clipboard - Format as BBCode": {
            "numbers": false,
            "multi_select": true
        }
    }
]

The name of the command is the key value, and then you add the parameters you wish to specify. You can use any combination of settings below.

  • numbers (boolean): Display line numbers in the gutter.
  • multi_select (boolean): If multiple regions are selected in a document, only export what is under those selections. By default only the first selection is recognized. Default is false
  • color_scheme (string): The color scheme (tmTheme) file you would like to use. By default the current color scheme file is used, or the the alternate default color scheme if defined in the setting alternate_scheme.
  • clipboard_copy (boolean): Copy BBCode to the clipboard after generation. Default is true.
  • view_open (boolean): Open txt file of BBCode in a Sublime Text tab. Default is false.
  • no_header (boolean): Do not display file name, date, and time at the top of the HTML document. Default is false.

If you wish to bind a command to a key combination etc., the same settings as above can be used.

Example:

{
    "keys": ["ctrl+alt+n"],
    "command": "export_bbcode",
    "args": {
        "numbers": false,
        "multi_select": true
    }
}

Usage: Annotations (HTML only)

Annotations are comments you can make on selected text. When the HTML is generated, the selected text will be underlined, and when the mouse hovers over them, a tooltip will appear with your comment.

In order to use annotations, you must enter into an "Annotation Mode". This puts your file in a read only state. At this point, you can select text and create annotations using the annotation commands provided. When you leave the "Annotation Mode", all annotations will be lost. So you must print before leaving annotation mode.

You can access the annotation commands from the command palette or from the context menu.

The commands are as follows:

  • Enable Annotation Mode: Turn annotation mode on.
  • Disable Annotation Mode: Turn annotation mode off.
  • Annotate Selection: Annote the given selection (no multi-select support currently).
  • Delete Annotation(s): Delete the annotation region the the cursor resides in (multi-select support).
  • Delete All Annotations: Delete all annotation regions.
  • Show Annotation Comment: Show the annotation comment of the region under the cursor.

You can navigate the annotations in the generate HTML by using a jump table. You can show the jump table at any time by selecting the annotation button in the toolbar. You can also click any annotation to show the jump table as well. If it gets in the way, you can dock it in a different location.

Settings File options

  • alternate_scheme (string or false): Defines a default theme to be used if a theme is not specified in a command. When this is false, the current Sublime Text theme in use is used.
  • alternate_font_size (int or false): Define an alternate font_size to use by default instead of the current one in use. Use the current one in use if set to a literal false. Default is false.
  • alternate_font_face (string or false): Define an alternate font_face to use by default instead of the current one in use. Use the current one in use if set to a literal false. Default is false.
  • valid_selection_size (integer): Minimum allowable size for a selection to be accepted for only the selection to be printed.
  • linux_python2.6_lib (string): If you are on linux and Sublime Text is not including your Python 2.6 library folder, you can try and configure it here.
  • html_panel (array of commands): Define export configurations to appear under the Export to HTML: Show Export Menu command palette command.
  • bbcode_panel (array of commands): Define export configurations to appear under the Export to BBCode: Show Export Menu command palette command.
