Sublime Text 3 integration plugin

A Sublime Text 3 plugin which integrates services.

This plugin is no longer maintained (mainly because I switched to PyCharm). If someone wants to continue work on this, i will give access rights.

  • "team_tokens" (required)
    • A list of tokens you have, keyed by the team name that the token corresponds to.

    • The parenthetical subtext to show next to your username. Defaults to "via Sublime".
    • *Note that if set, this setting will override the "show_platform_and_name" setting
    • *Slack enforces that external plugins have parenthetical subtext next to the sender's username for each message. So if this option is omitted AND the "show_platform_and_name" setting is false, Slack adds the default subtext "bot", e.g., "myUser (bot)"
  • "show_platform_and_name" (optional)
    • defaults to true
    • if this is true and no setting is given for username_subtext, will use your name and your platform as the subtext to the username, e.g. "myUser (simion, linux)"
  • "repeat_file_ext" (optional)
    • defaults to false
    • If this is true, the name of the file being uploaded with have the extension repeated., e.g. is uploaded as
    • *This is meant to account for the fact that Slack, by default, chops off the file extension when displaying the filename. So uploading a file called shows up in most places in Slack as just having the filename script. With this option set to true, it would show up as in Slack, at the expense of having the actual uploaded filename as
