ImportJS is a tool that helps you import dependencies in your JavaScript project. More information is available in the main import-js project.

Running import-js in Sublime Text

  1. Install the ImportJS plugin via Package Control

  2. Install the import-js npm package

    npm install -g import-js
  3. Configure import-js

  4. Open the root of your project as a folder (Project -> Add Folder to Project…)

  5. Import a file!

    Whenever you have undefined variables, open the Command Palette (CTRL+SHIFT+P/CMD+SHIFT+P) and select "ImportJS: fix all imports", or "ImportJS: import word under cursor".

It will be helpful to bind import_js to easy-to-use bindings, such as:

{ "keys": ["super+alt+i"], "command": "import_js", "args": { "command": "fix" } },
{ "keys": ["super+alt+j"], "command": "import_js", "args": { "command": "word" } },
{ "keys": ["super+alt+g"], "command": "import_js", "args": { "command": "goto" } },

Available commands:

  • "ImportJS: fix all imports"
  • "ImportJS: import word under cursor"
  • "ImportJS: goto module"
  • "ImportJS: terminate daemon"


If you get an error message saying something like "Can't find import-js executable", you may need to specify a path to the importjs executable in configuration. This likely means that you are using a tool like nvm or nodenv to manage multiple Node versions on your system.

To fix this, you need to make sure that the code that sets up your PATH is in the correct location. This plugin will open a login shell to determine the proper PATH, so the code that sets up your PATH needs to be in a file that is sourced for login shells. Here's a handy table:

Shell File
bash ~/.bash_profile
zsh (Mac OS X) ~/.zprofile
zsh (Linux) ~/.zshenv or ~/.zprofile
fish ~/.config/fish/

Alternatively, you can also try editing the ImportJS User Settings from the Preferences > Package Settings > ImportJS > Settings — User menu and add the folder where the importjs executable is located to the paths option. Example:

  "paths": ["/Users/USERNAME/.nvm/versions/node/v4.4.3/bin"]

Please note that you can't use ~ to refer to the home directory, you need to specify the full path. To figure out where your importjs executable is located, you can run which importjs from your project's directory.
