Nodejs Sublime Text 2 Package


Please note this project is no longer activley maintained. The occasional pull request is accepted but it looking for someone to officially take over

Since I started this project, I've not really know where to take it past the initial few versions I released. As such I am no longer maintaining this project - nor do I have the time to look into some of the existing issues.

If anyone would be interested in taking over this project to maintain - and hopefully take it somewhere, then please get in touch.


The Nodejs Sublime Text 2 Package provides a set of code completion, scripts and tools to work with nodejs.

Code Completion

The package code completion is generated from the main nodejs libraries and global namespaces. To invoke the code completion start typing the namespace you want (For example, type fs) and then Ctrl + Space, you get this:

Node Commands

You can access node commands in two ways.

  • Via the menu in Tools -> Node
  • By accessing the Command Palette and typing node

The current commands available are (with Windows binding, other bindings are provided):

  • Run current script in node (Alt + R)
  • Run current script in node debug (Alt + D)
  • Run current script in node and arguments (Ctrl + Alt + r)
  • Run current script in node debug and arguments (Ctrl + Alt + D)
  • Uglify Code
  • NPM Command
  • Build documentation (builds the completion files)


Also included are some boilerplate snippets. They include functionality such as a http server, reading the contents of a directory, etc.

To access these snippets type node in your editor followed by Ctrl + Space

If you have any boilerplate code you would like to see in here, get in touch.


You may install Nodejs via the Sublime Text 2 package manager, or using git with the below commands:


`git clone git:// ~/Library/Application\ Support/Sublime\ Text\ 2/Packages/Nodejs`


`git clone "%APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2\Packages\Nodejs"`

Build Systems

PLEASE NOTE: The build system will be refactored to provide different nodejs build systems (such as jake)

If you have a JavaScript file open, by selecting Tools -> Build Systems -> Nodejs and then hitting Ctrl + B, you will activate the node build system on your file and node will try to run it. You may need to add a path variable to the settings object for this if your node executable is not found


  • Replace the Nodejs.sublime-build to work with jake
  • Reorganise menu structure
  • Improve code completion snippets where possible
  • Provide an interface for writing JavaScript plugins
