Origami is a new way of thinking about panes in Sublime Text: you tell Sublime Text where you want a new pane, and it makes one for you.
Ordinarily one uses the commands under View>Layout, or if one is quite intrepid a custom keyboard shortcut can be made to give a specific layout, but both of these solutions were unsatisfactory to me. Perhaps they were to you too! That's what this plugin is for.
Try it out! I think you'll like it.
Origami is driven by keyboard shortcuts. By default, these keyboard shortcuts are all two-stage, and are hidden behind
super+k. First press
super+k, then press the arrow keys with modifiers:
- no modifiers: travel to an adjacent pane
shift: carry the current file to the destination
option): clone the current file to the destination
super: create an adjacent pane
super+shift: destroy an adjacent pane
These keyboard shortcuts are designed to make it really easy to modify the layout of your editor.
(Note: Windows uses
ctrl instead of
You can also use Origami's clone action to get a split view into files. Simply open Goto Anything (super+P) and type "Horizontal Split" or "Vertical Split", then hit enter.
