ToggleQuotes is a Sublime Text plugin which lets you easily toggle quote marks in your code.

Installation

With Package Control

If you have the Package Control package installed, you can install ToggleQuotes from inside Sublime Text itself. Open the Command Palette and select "Package Control: Install Package", then search for ToggleQuotes and you're done!

Without Package Control

Go to your Sublime Text 2 Packages directory and clone the repository using the command below:

git clone https://github.com/spadgos/sublime-ToggleQuotes.git ToggleQuotes

Don't forget to keep updating it, though!

Example

Make one or more selections of strings including their quotes and then press the opposite quote mark. That is, if you have "test" press ', if you have 'test', press ".

// With this selected:
"test"
// Press: '
// Result is:
'test'

Internal quotes are escaped, and already-escaped quotes are unescaped for you:

// With this selected:
"hello 'world'"
// Press: '
// Result is:
'hello \'world\''

// With this selected:
'hello \'world\''
// Press: "
// Result is:
"hello 'world'"

If you have multiple selections which have different quote marks, you can toggle them all by pressing Ctrl+'

You can also toggle the quote marks of a string by simply putting your cursor inside the string and pressing Ctrl+'. The selection will expand to the entire string automatically.
