About

A Sublime Text 2 plugin for modifying buffers using external command output.

Installation

You can install this package by running the following in your Packages:

git clone git://github.com/technocoreai/SublimeExternalCommand.git

Commands

Filter Through Command

Pipes each non-empty selection through an external command and replaces contents of the selection with its output. If there are no non-empty selections, replaces the whole buffer.

To use, press Edit / Filter Through Command or bind it to a hotkey:

{ "keys": ["…"], "command": "filter_through_command" }

Insert Command Output

For every selection, launches external command and inserts output at the start of the selection.

To use, press Edit / Insert Command Output or bind it to a hotkey:

{ "keys": ["…"], "command": "insert_command_output" }

Notes

External command will be executed asynchronously, so you can cancel it by pressing the same hotkey or using Edit / Cancel External Command. It will also be automatically cancelled if you try to modify buffer contents, selections, or close the buffer.

Both commands accept an optional cmdline argument, so you can use them to quickly bind specific external commands. For example, add this to your bindings to quickly add line numbers to selected text:

{ "keys": ["…"], "command": "filter_through_command", "args": { "cmdline": "cat -n" } }
