This integrates Chuck Rhode's PythonTidy script from http://pypi.python.org/pypi/PythonTidy/ with the Sublime Text 2 editor. For as long as there is no download available from PyPI, it uses my Github fork at https://github.com/witsch/PythonTidy


At the moment Git is required to install the plugin. You will need to clone the repository in your Sublime Text "Packages" directory:

$ git clone --recursive https://github.com/witsch/SublimePythonTidy.git

The "Packages" directory is located at:

  • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/
  • Linux: ~/.Sublime Text 2/Packages/
  • Windows: %APPDATA%/Sublime Text 2/Packages/


To reformat your Python source, simply press the keyboard shortcut. It is Ctrl+Alt+Cmd+T on OSX and Ctrl+Alt+Shift+T on Linux and Windows.

The output of PythonTidy can be tweaked to your individual taste or company policy via a configuration file stored at ~/.pythontidy.xml. The complete set of default settings can be dumped using:

$ cd 'Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages'
$ python SublimePythonTidy/PythonTidy/runner.py -d

Example settings are available at https://gist.github.com/1240583
