Scala/Test plug-in for Sublime Text 2
Latest commit c9316d3 @patgannon Merge pull request #1 from p14n/master
Using ScalaTest suites instead of JUnit suites

Sublime Text Scala Test


This plug-in for Sublime Text 2 enables you to:

  • Run scala unit tests (all tests in suite / single fixture)
  • Switch between code and test
  • Navigate quickly to scala files within project folder

This project was influenced by, and borrows some code from:


Go to your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory

  • OS X: ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages
  • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 2/Packages/
  • Linux: ~/.Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages/

and clone the repository using the command below:

git clone ScalaTest


You can specify a different path to the Scala executable. By default, you will need to have Scala in your path, which likely means you will need to run Sublime Text 2 from the command line

Copy the ScalaTest.sublime-settings file to ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User/ and make your changes there.


  • Run single scala test fixture: Command-Shift-X
  • Run all scala tests in the project folder: Option-Shift-X
  • Switch between code and test: Command-Shift-R
  • Navigate to scala files in project folder (in quick panel): Command-Shift-E


  • 'Command' (OSX) = 'Ctrl' (Linux / Windows)
  • 'Option' (OSX) = 'Alt' (Linux / Windows)


This plug-in assumes your project folder is organized as follows:

  • implementation files are in src/main/scala/[namespace]/[ImplementationClassName].scala
  • test files are in src/test/scala/[namespace]/[ImplementationClassName]Test.scala
  • JAR files needed to run tests are either under lib/default or lib/test

If that is not your convention, some of the features won't work. (Use at your own risk.) If you make modifications to accomodate your folder structure, go ahead and submit a pull request (bonus points for extensibility!)

Also note that currently this plug-in uses the JUnit test runner.
