Operations on text selections for SublimeText2

branch: master
README.md

Description

Bufmod is a package for SublimeText2 that contains various commands to manipulate the current text selection in useful ways.

Installation

You can install this package by running the following command in your ST2 Packages directory:

git clone git://github.com/minism/SublimeBufmod.git

Once installed, be sure to edit the appropriate keybinding config file, as the keys are blank by default. The files are:

  • Default (Linux).sublime-keymap
  • Default (OSX).sublime-keymap
  • Default (Windows).sublime-keymap

Commands

You can run commands by using the key shortcuts, or through the command menu by pressing Ctrl/Cmd+P and typing "Bufmod". All commands require one or more active selections of text in your editor to have any effect.

Apply function to selection

This is a simple yet powerful command. An input window will open up which accepts a python function as a string, on a single line, with the following constraints:

  • The variable s is a unicode object containing the selected text.
  • The function must return a unicode or string.

The possibilities are really endless here. Some examples of what you can do:

return str(len(s))
return s.encode('ascii')
return s.strip().upper().center(80)

Or, perhaps something more complicated (make sure to use semicolons!):

import os; return '\n'.join(os.path.join(os.path.expanduser('~'), chunk.strip()) for chunk in s.split(','))

Which would turn this:

images, scripts, notes

Into:

/Users/josh/images
/Users/josh/scripts
/Users/josh/notes

Apply function to each line in selection

Similar to the previous command, except for the following differences:

  • The function is mapped to every line in the selection.
  • The variable s is a unicode object containing the text for a single line.
  • The value returned replaces a single line.

This (ideally) obviates the need to use split and join in your function to process multiple lines.

Decorate text with border

An input window opens which accepts a single character (extra characters are discarded). The current selection is wrapped in a padded box using the specified character.

Example:

bufmod.py - SublimeText2 Helper

Becomes:

###################################
#                                 #
# bufmod.py - SublimeText2 Helper #
#                                 #
###################################
