Python interpreter settings

By default SublimeJEDI will use default Python interpreter from the PATH. Also you can set different interpreter for each Sublime Project.

To set project related Python interpreter you have to edit yours project config file. By default project config name is <project name>.sublime-project

You can set Python interpreter, and additional python package directories, using for example the following:

# <project name>.sublime-project
    // ...

    "settings": {
        // ...
        "python_interpreter": "$project_path/../../virtual/bin/python",

        "python_package_paths": [

When setting paths, Sublime Text Build System Variables and OS environment variables are automatically expanded. Note that using placeholders and substitutions, like in regular Sublime Text Build System paths is not supported.

Autocomplete on DOT

If you want auto-completion on dot, you can define a trigger in the Sublime User or Python preferences:

# User/Preferences.sublime-settings or User/Python.sublime-settings
    // ...
    "auto_complete_triggers": [{"selector": "source.python", "characters": "."}],

If you want auto-completion ONLY on dot and not while typing, you can set (additionally to the trigger above):

# User/Preferences.sublime-settings or User/Python.sublime-settings
    // ...
    "auto_complete_selector": "-",

Jedi Goto / Go Definition

Find function / variable / class definition

Shortcuts: CTRL+SHIFT+G

Mouse binding, was disabled, becase it's hard to keep ST default behavior. Now you can bind CTRL + LeftMouseButton by themself in this way:

# User/Default.sublime-mousemap
    "modifiers": ["ctrl"], "button": "button1",
    "command": "sublime_jedi_goto",
    "press_command": "drag_select"

Jedi Find Related Names ("Find Usages")

Find function / method / variable / class usage, definition.

Shortcut: Alt+Shift+f.

Jedi Show Docstring

Show docstring in output panel.

Exposed command is sublime_jedi_docstring which can be assigned to appropriate shortcut (i.e. F1).

Jedi Show Calltip

Show calltip in status bar.

Exposed command is sublime_jedi_signature.

Function args fill up on completion

SublimeJEDI allow fill up function parameters by default. Thanks to @krya, now you can turn it off. Function parameters completion has 3 different behaviors:

  • insert all function arguments on autocomplete

    # complete result
    func(a, b, c, d=True, e=1, f=None)
    # sublime_jedi.sublime-settings
        "auto_complete_function_params": "all"
  • insert only required arguments that don't have default value (default behavior)

    # complete result
    func(a, b, c)
    # sublime_jedi.sublime-settings
        "auto_complete_function_params": "required"
  • do not insert any arguments

    # complete result
    # sublime_jedi.sublime-settings
        "auto_complete_function_params": ""

Completion visibility

Sublime Text has a bit strange completion behavior and some times does not adds it's own completion suggestions. Enabling this option to try to bring more comfortable workflow.

  • Suggest only Jedi completion

     # sublime_jedi.sublime-settings
         "sublime_completions_visibility": "jedi"


     # sublime_jedi.sublime-settings
         "sublime_completions_visibility": "default"
  • Suggest Jedi completion and Sublime completion in the end of the list

     # sublime_jedi.sublime-settings
         "sublime_completions_visibility": "list"

Please note, if you are using SublimeAllAutocomplete - you should not care about this option.


To change logging level of the plugin - change logging_level value in settings.

Possible values: "debug", "info", "error"

# User/sublime_jedi.sublime-settings
    // ...
	"logging_level": "error"


Auto-complete for import XXXX does not works.

It's a common issue for ST3. All language related settings are stored in Python Package. There is a Completion Rules.tmPreferences file where defined that completion should be canceled after some list of keywords (def, class, import & etc.).

Sublime Jedi plugin already has Completion Rules.tmPreferences file for ST2, but ST3 ignores it.

Some workarounds how to update completion rules:

1. Delete your Sublime Text Cache file `Cache/Python/Completion Rules.tmPreferences.cache`
2. Download [Completion Rules.tmPreferences.cache]( to `User/Packages/Python/`
There is package for this...
1. install Package
2. cmd+shift+p (Command Pannel)
2.1. type `PackageResourceViewer: Open Resource`
2.2. type `python` and select Python package
2.3. type `Completion Rules.tmPreferences`
2.4. remove `import` from the regexp.
2.5. save
