Grails Sublime Text 2 Package

The Grails Sublime Text 2 Package provides code completion, syntax highlighting and other tools to work with Grails.


There are two main ways to install the Grails Sublime Text 2 Package:

  1. Via the Sublime Package Control.

  2. Placing a Grails directory containing this resource under Packages.


    git clone git:// ~/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages/Grails

    OS X:

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


    git clone git:// "%APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2\Packages\Grails"


  • Code completions for Grails file types, with automatic file type detection (Controllers, Services, and Domain classes for now)

  • Enable comment toggling in Groovy code and use GSP comments (%{-- --}%) in GSPs

  • GSP syntax highlighter (based on the TextMate bundle, with a few fixes)

  • Grails documentation (GDoc) syntax highlighting and snippets

(Note: your color scheme might need to be adjusted to recognize the syntax highlighting changes)


  • Code completion within GSP files

  • Run Grails commands from the Sublime console (if possible)

  • Navegation between classes and their tests (through context menu maybe)

  • Code completions for TagLibs, Tests, and Jobs

  • Improve code completions when multiple parameter lists are possible
