CodeKit plug-in for Sublime Text
How it works
Auto-Activate Projects (default behavior)
When you open a project in Sublime Text, CodeKit will automatically open for you, if it's not already open, and then set the active project in CodeKit based on the current file you're working on. So if you have a few different projects open, even files in different projects but in the same window, this plug-in will keep CodeKit focused on the project you're focused on so you don't have to.
Notice If you hold the shift key down while CodeKit is starting it will
Safe Start which clears existing project data.
Auto-activate will look for a
config.codekit file in the active file's directory or walk up the directory tree until it either finds a
config.codekit file and sends a signal to CodeKit or reaches the OS root directory and does nothing. Some path caching is done to prevent lots of unnecessary directory walks when
you're switching between files in the same directory tree.
Manually Activate Projects
You can disable auto project-switching by unchecking
Preferences>Package Settings>CodeKit Commands>Enable Auto Switch CodeKit Project and manually change the active project in CodeKit from Sublime via the Command Palette commands
CodeKit Select project or
CodeKit Select framework.
Auto Quit CodeKit (off by default)
Preferences>Package Settings>CodeKit Commands you can enable
Auto Quit CodeKit which will quit CodeKit if you
command+q Sublime Text or if you close every window in Sublime Text.
If you're currently working on a project or framework that CodeKit doesn't know about, simply run the command
CodeKit Add project or
CodeKit Add framework from the Command Palette. You'll then be presented with a list of root level folders from Sublime Text's sidebar, once you select one it will be added to CodeKit.
Alternatively you can right click on a folder in the side bar and select
CodeKit Commands > Create CodeKit Project or
CodeKit Commands > Create CodeKit Framework and add that specific folder to CodeKit.
Auto-Pausing CodeKit (off by default)
By default this plug-in will not pause CodeKit when you're not focused on Sublime Text. This can be useful if you use the CLI or third-party tools to handle source control.
Before you perform any action that will change large numbers of files at once (switching branches, rebasing, pull requests, etc.) you MUST tell CodeKit to ignore file changes.
Manually Pausing CodeKit
If you'd rather handle toggling the paused state of CodeKit you can disable this feature by unchecking
Preferences>Package Settings>CodeKit Commands>Enable Auto Pausing and run the
CodeKit pause and
CodeKit unpause commands from the Command Palette.
Heads Up: These two commands are hidden from the Command Palette when auto-pausing is enabled since they're useless otherwise.
Info: More details about why it's good practice to pause and other critical things to know about CodeKit can be found here.
Launching and refreshing browsers
You have access to browser refreshing, style sheet reloading, browser specific previewing all from the Command Palette. Just type
CodeKit in the Command Palette to see the full list.
Info: Any new commands added will always be prefixed with
CodeKit for easy viewing/access.
