Switch between code and spec

This command will open the spec or source file that has the same path of the active view file. If you're looking at a source file and the package can't find any specs, it'll display a list of possible directories to create a new one.

To run this command, you can use ctrl+./super+. or ctrl+shift+./super+shift+., this last one will open a split view. Also you can select Jasmine: Switch between code and spec from the command palette.

Create spec file

This command is exactly the same as running Jasmine: Switch between code and spec and not finding specs.

It doesn't have a key binding, but you can use jasmine_create_spec as a command name, like this:

{ "keys": ["KEYS"], "command": "jasmine_create_spec", "args": { "split_view": false } }

(legacy) Switch between code and spec

Runs the command from @gja package, found in

If you want to setup a keybinding for it, you can use:

{ "keys": ["KEYS"], "command": "legacy_jasmine_switch" }

Toggle quotes

This command will change the snippets from the current active quotes to it's counterpart.

For example, it will transform this:

describe("Name of the group", function() {

to this

describe('Name of the group', function() {

If you want to setup a keybinding for it, you can use:

{ "keys": ["KEYS"], "command": "jasmine_toggle_quotes" }


After each toggle you may need to restart Sublime to the changes to take effect.

Command Settings

There are two possible settings:

    // Ignore directories when searching for files (source and specs)
    "ignored_directories": [".git", "vendor", "tmp", "node_modules"],

    // The parent folder name for the spec files
    "jasmine_path": "spec",

    // Extension used when creating a new spec file. 
    "spec_file_extension": ".spec.js"

Remember that this settings only apply to the new command (they won't affect (legacy) Switch between code and spec).


With this package, the editor will recognize .spec.js files as having Jasmine syntax. It will highlight (x)describe and (x)it.

Take into account that any other packages that are using javascript as a syntax may not work with jasmine, you can always turn it back off by opening a .spec.js file and selecting "View > Syntax > Open all with current extension as... > Javascript".



If you have PackageControl installed, you can use it to install the package.

Just type cmd-shift-p/ctrl-shift-p to bring up the command pallete and pick Package Control: Install Package from the dropdown, search and select the package there and you're all set.


You can clone the repo in your /Packages (Preferences -> Browse Packages...) folder and start using/hacking it.

cd ~/path/to/Packages
git clone Jasmine
