Summary

JsFormat is a javascipt formatting plugin for Sublime Text 2. It uses the commandline/python-module javascript formatter from http://jsbeautifier.org/ to format the selected text, or the entire file if there is no selection. The plugin does not check to make sure the buffer has a ".js" file type, it just javascript formats the selection/file. Thus, use with caution if you are in an html file.

I am investigating replacing JsFormat with an 'all in one' formatting plugin to support multiple languages: Format (very very pre-alpha). JsFormat's complete feature set would be present for js/json files. Please leave me some feedback if you think this is a good/bad idea.

Features

  • javascript/json formatting (obviously)
  • all settings are customizable (whitespace, formatting style, etc..)
  • puts the cursor back in the same location it was before formatting (accounts for whitespace/newline changes)

Settings

JsFormat uses whatever tab character settings are configured with the standard "translate_tabs_to_spaces" and "tab_size" sublime settings.

In addition, the following settings are available in JsFormat/JsFormat.sublime-settings (defaults shown below):

  • "max_preserve_newlines": 4
  • "preserve_newlines": true
  • "jslint_happy": false
  • "brace_style": "collapse"
  • "keep_array_indentation": false
  • "keep_function_indentation": false
  • "indent_with_tabs": false
  • "ensure_newline_at_eof_on_save": false
  • "space_before_line_starters": false

Install

Package Control (Recommended)

JsFormat is now included in the default repository channel for Package Control. It should show up in your install list with no changes.

If it does not show up, or you are on an older version of Package Control: Add https://github.com/jdc0589/JsFormat as a Package Control repository. JsFormat will show up in the package install list.

Git Clone

Clone this repository in to the Sublime Text 2 "Packages" directory, which is located where ever the "Preferences" -> "Browse Packages" option in sublime takes you.

Key Binding

The default key binding is "ctrl+alt+f"

Key Binding Conflicts

Unfortunately there are other plugins that use "ctrl + alt + f", this is a hard problem to solve. If JsFormat works OK via the command palette but does nothing when you use the "ctrl + alt + f" shortcut, you have two options:

  1. Add { "keys": ["ctrl+alt+f"], "command": "js_format"} to your user keybindings file. This will override anything specifid by a plugin.
  2. Find the offending plugin, and change the shortcut in its sublime-keymap file (will revert on updates)

This is the current bug report we are using to discuss this issue; in addition I have made a wiki page here to document offending plugins. If we find all the offending plugins, I will be more than happy to contribute to them to fix the problem.

Command Palette

Open the command palette via "ctrl + shift + p", Jsformat appears as "Format: Javascript"
