What's Matrixify:

Matrixify is a Sublime text 2 plugin that facilitates formatting lines of code into matrix shape.

If you dealt with a code with large data sets inside an array, list or a map like Hex data or countries list for example. Then it's interesting to format it into a matrix shape , that's much elegant than a single line or element per line approach and make the code readable and compact.

Matrixify has 5 modes :

Can be accessed :

  1. From menu Edit > Matrixify.
  2. Keyboard shortcut ctrl+super+x
  3. The command Matrixify from the command palette.

d
e
f
g
h
i
j
k
--------Format: %,%,%,--------

Output:

a,b,c,
d,e,f,
g,h,i,
j,k

2-Auto (uses lines and automatic format):

d,e,f,
g,h,i,
j,k

5-Verbose (requires format and separator):

Can be accessed using keyboard shortcut ctrl+super+s. You should enter a valid python tuple (format,separator).

Example 5:

a::b::c::d::e::f::g::h::i::j::k
--------Input: ("%  %  %","::")--------

Output:

a  b  c
d  e  f
g  h  i
j  k

P.S: You can also use multiple selections, but the format line will be applied to all of them.

Writing the format line:

A format line specify the position of each line with the character "%" and separators that will separates columns of the matrix.

P.S: The number of "%" used in the format line indicates the number of columns in the matrix.

aaa
b
cc
d
e
f
g
h
i
jjjjj
k
l
m
nnnnnn
o
pppppppp
q
-----Format: >> %,-%,--%,---%, &&-----

Output:

>> aaa,-b     ,--cc,---d       , &&
>> e  ,-f     ,--g ,---h       , &&
>> i  ,-jjjjj ,--k ,---l       , &&
