A Sublime Text 2 plugin for PythonTidy integration
Latest commit 2a4eca1 Mar 12, 2013 @witsch Merge pull request #7 from jedy/master
Fixes to deal with Chinese characters


This integrates Chuck Rhode's PythonTidy script from with the Sublime Text 2 editor. For as long as there is no download available from PyPI, it uses my Github fork at


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

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/ -d

Example settings are available at
