AsciiDoc Package for Sublime Text 2
It adds syntax highlighting and snippets for AsciiDoc language to Sublime Text 2 editor.
My work is based on the Christian Zuckschwerdt’s AsciiDoc TextMate bundle.
Sublime Text 2 is compatible with Textmate editor for OS X snippets, preferences and languages file. However, even though it can recognize the Textmate snippets, some features such as tab completion, shortcut commands do not work out of the box.
My work is to overcome these limitations.
All the files provided here are tested in Windows 7 and OS X Lion.
To install the package, follow these steps:
Download the zip containing src files.
Extract the files to AsciiDoc folder (create this folder if not present already) under:
%APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2\Packages\
~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages
Sublime Text 2/Data
Close all instances of Sublime Text 2 editor and relaunch the editor.
If successful, you should see AsciiDoc entry under
View > Syntax and under
Tools > Snippets.
Note: Snippets may take few seconds to load under Windows.
Create a new file, save it as
<filename>.ascor change the syntax to AsciiDoc
Start typing AsciiDoc!
Syntax highlighting works best with Sunburst or Twilight theme. For other themes, you may have to customize them.
Snippets can be inserted anywhere by using the menu command
Tools > Snippets > AsciiDoc or by typing two initial characters and hitting tab to complete.
Few tab completion examples are:
h4 TABfor one-liner versions)
Table generation (type
Tab expansion for blocks (type
Sidebar block (type
Keyboard shortcuts let you do some quick formatting such setting the text to bold or italics. Some examples are:
Double Quotes (type
For a complete list, see Keyboard shortcuts.
Following are planned enhancements for the package:
Adding Build system to preview as HTML or PDF.
Anything else you wanna see! Just add it to the issues list.
