Sublime Text 2 plugin: Simple Rails Navigator

Simple plugin for navigating Ruby on Rails applications.


NOTE: The master branch is not compatible with Sublime Text 3, but there is now a separate ST3 branch (thanks @doz!) that works with ST3 (and is incompatible with ST2). Until Package Control for ST3 is ready, the ST3 version can be installed by cloning the GitHub repo (see Clone from GitHub below) and running git checkout ST3.


This plugin provides commands for listing models, controllers, views, helpers, fixtures, tests/specs, javascript files, or stylesheets in a quick panel for easy selection.

Related files are located at the top of the list so that they can be selected simply by pressing Enter. For instance, if the active view is a Rails model and you request a list of controllers, the controller corresponding to the model will be listed at the top, provided that you follow normal Rails resource conventions with the controller name containing the pluralized version of the model name (e.g. post.rb and posts_controller.rb).

The same goes for tests or specs (in the example case, the test file should be called test/unit/post_test.rb or spec/models/post_spec.rb). If the application contains a spec directory, the plugin will search for specs and ignore the test directory; otherwise the test directory will be used.

The following table shows which related files will be put at the top of the list:

Active file Listing these file types will show related files at the top of the list
model controller; fixture; model unit test/model spec
controller model; views; helper; functional test/controller spec
view controller; functional test/view spec
helper controller; helper unit test/helper spec
fixture model; model unit test/model spec; functional test/controller spec
model unit test/model spec model; fixture
functional test controller; views; fixture
controller spec controller; fixture
view spec view
helper unit test/helper spec helper
routes.rb route specs

This plugin was inspired by Luqman Amjad's Rails Related Files plugin. The plugins have complementary functionality (Amjad's plugin shows related files of all types in a single list), and they can be used together.

Installation

Package Control

The easiest way to install this is with Package Control.

  • If you just went and installed Package Control, you probably need to restart Sublime Text 2 before doing this next bit.
  • Bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+p on OS X, Control+Shift+p on Linux/Windows).
  • Select "Package Control: Install Package" (it'll take a few seconds)
  • Select Simple Rails Navigator when the list appears.

Package Control will automatically keep the Simple Rails Navigator up to date with the latest version.

Clone from GitHub

Alternatively, you can clone the repository directly from GitHub into your Packages directory:

git clone http://github.com/noklesta/SublimeRailsNav

Key bindings

The plugin does not install any key bindings automatically. The following is an example of how you can set up your own key bindings. To make sure they don't conflict with existing commands, first run sublime.log_commands(True) in the console, try out the key combinations and see if anything is logged.

{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+m"], "command": "list_rails_models" },
{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+c"], "command": "list_rails_controllers" },
{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+v"], "command": "list_rails_views" },
{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+h"], "command": "list_rails_helpers" },
{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+x"], "command": "list_rails_fixtures" },
{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+t"], "command": "list_rails_tests" },
{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+i"], "command": "list_rails_javascripts" },
{ "keys": ["super+ctrl+y"], "command": "list_rails_stylesheets" }

If you are using Vintage mode and want to use sequences of non-modifier keys, you can restrict the key bindings to command mode like this:

{ "keys": [" ", "m"], "command": "list_rails_models", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] },
{ "keys": [" ", "c"], "command": "list_rails_controllers", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] },
{ "keys": [" ", "v"], "command": "list_rails_views", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] },
{ "keys": [" ", "h"], "command": "list_rails_helpers", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] },
{ "keys": [" ", "x"], "command": "list_rails_fixtures", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] },
{ "keys": [" ", "t"], "command": "list_rails_tests", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] },
{ "keys": [" ", "i"], "command": "list_rails_javascripts", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] },
{ "keys": [" ", "y"], "command": "list_rails_stylesheets", "context": [{"key": "setting.command_mode"}] }

All commands are also available from the Command Palette (search for commands beginning with "Simple Rails Navigator").

Settings

The settings in SublimeRailsNav.sublime-settings may be overridden either in Packages/User/SublimeRailsNav.sublime-settings or, for a particular project, in the project file under a top-level "settings" key. An example of the latter:

"settings":
{
  "SublimeRailsNav":
  {
    "javascript_locations": [
      ["app", "assets", "javascripts"]
    ],
    "stylesheet_locations": [
      ["app", "assets", "stylesheets"],
      ["lib", "assets", "stylesheets"]
    ]
  }
}

Credits

  • Inspiration from Luqman Amjad's Rails Related Files plugin for ST2 and from Tim Pope's rails.vim plugin for Vim (which contains sooo much more functionality than this one, of course :-)
  • Python version of the Rails inflector: https://bitbucket.org/ixmatus/inflector
  • Contains a modified version of a small code snippet from the Git package for ST2.
