Sublime TODOs

A Sublime Text 2 plugin to extract and list TODO comments from open files and project folders.

Take a look at this screencast (courtesy of Shannon Huffman) for an overview.

Install

The preferred method is to use the Sublime Package Manager. Alternatively, checkout from github:

$ cd Sublime Text 2/Packages
$ git clone https://robcowie@github.com/robcowie/SublimeTODO.git

Config

All plugin configuration must be placed in user or project-specific settings inside a todo object, for example;

{
    // other user config ...
    "todo": {
        "patterns": {}
    }
}

See an example user settings file here.

Adding comment patterns

Extraction uses regular expressions that return one match group representing the message. Default patterns are provided for TODO, NOTE, FIXME and CHANGED comments. To override or provide more patterns, add patterns to user settings, e.g.

"patterns": {
    "TODO": "TODO[\\s]*?:+(?P<todo>.*)$",
    "NOTE": "NOTE[\\s]*?:+(?P<note>.*)$",
    "FIXME": "FIX ?ME[\\s]*?:+(?P<fixme>\\S.*)$",
    "CHANGED": "CHANGED[\\s]*?:+(?P<changed>\\S.*)$"
}

Note that the pattern must provide at least one named group which will be used to group the comments in results.

By default, searching is not case sensitive. You can change this behaviour by adding

"case_sensitive": true

to the todo settings object.

Excluding files and folders

Global settings folder_exclude_patterns, file_exclude_patterns and binary_file_patterns are excluded from search results.

To exclude further directories, add directory names (not glob pattern or regexp) to folder_exclude_patterns in todo settings:

"todo": {
    "folder_exclude_patterns": [
        "vendor", 
        "tmp"
    ]
}

To add file excludes, add glob patterns to file_exclude_patterns:

"file_exclude_patterns": [
    "*.css"
]

Results title

Override the results view title by setting result_title

"result_title": "TODO Results"

Usage

Show TODOs: Project and open files scans all files in your project Show TODOs: Open files only scans only open, saved files Both are triggered from the command palette. No default key bindings are provided.

Navigating results

Results can be navigated by keyboard and mouse:

  • next, previous, clear, enter
  • alt-double click (shift-double click in Linux)

    Note that due to the lack of support for context in mousemaps right now, alt-double click will trigger in any document, though it should be a no-op.
