A quick and simple way to run arbitrary shell commands in Sublime Text.
Mr. Turtlestein acts as a more flexible alternative to Sublime's build systems. Commands run in your project's directory:
And display their output just like Sublime's build systems:
Input and output
> operators can be used to pipe/redirect a command's
input and output:
- To pipe the active view's selections to a command, add a leading pipe
| sort). If there are no non-empty selections the entire file will be piped to the command.
- To pipe a command's output back into the view, add a trailing pipe
| sort |).
- To redirect the command's output to a new file, add a trailing greater than
symbol to the command (e.g
| sort >).
Snippets are available for frequently used commands. All snippets with the
source.dosbatch for Windows users) can be used in
the prompt shown above. I have
you can take a look at to get an idea for this.
- Ctrl + Shift + C (Cmd + Shift + C): prompt for a shell command
- Ctrl + Alt + Shift + C (Cmd + Alt + Shift + C): launch a terminal in the window's directory
- Ctrl + Shift + X (Cmd + Shift + X): re-run the previous command
In your own
Packages/User/Shell Turtlestein.sublime-settings file you can
override the following settings:
surround_cmd: A two-element array that specifies text to append before and after the command (e.g.
["source ~/.profile && ", ""]).
exec_args: The arguments that will be passed to
ExecCommand. The same options that are available to build systems are available here, but
pathare the only options that make sense to use with this plugin. Arguments specified in the
cmd_settings(see below) will override these defaults.
cmd_settings: An array of configurations to use for commands that are executed. The first configuration to match the command being run will be used. The keys that each configuration should have are:
cmd_regex: A regex that must match the command for this configuration for this configuration to be used.
surround_cmdoverride the settings described above for any matching command.
prefer_active_view_dir: If set to true, prefer using the directory of active file over using a folder open in the current project.
