Sublime Text 2 Print to HTML

A Sublime Text 2 plugin to print files as HTML with color syntax highlighting and line numbers, and open them in your browser for printing.

Colorization and HTML conversion is currently performed by Pygments, which supports a range of languages and syntaxes.


  • Install Package Manager.
  • Use Cmd+Shift+P or Ctrl+Shift+P then Package Control: Install Package.
  • Look for Print to HTML and install it.

If you prefer to install manually, install git, then:

git clone "<Sublime Text 2 Packages folder>/Print to HTML"


  • For best results, save your file with an appropriate extension beforehand.
  • To print the current file, use one of the following methods:
    • use Shift+Alt+P to print current file as HTML via your browser, or
    • from File menu, use Print as HTML to Browser or Print as HTML to New Buffer.
    • press Ctrl+Shift+P or Cmd+Shift+P then type print.
  • Edit settings in Preferences->Package Settings->Print in HTML to customize output formatting and behavior. Options such as monochrome, line numbering, and browser behavior can be modified.

Future goals

  • Use ST2's internal scope and color data from a buffer to produce an exact replica of a file from ST2 in HTML form. The current approach using Pygments has limitations regarding formats unknown by Pygments (e.g. Markdown) and documents with mixed syntaxes (e.g. PHP embedded in HTML).


This code is available on Github. Pull requests are welcome.

Uses the Pygments library (included) for code-to-HTML conversion.
