Extend ST3 Project Tagging

Extend ST3 Project Tagging

Postby chrisguilbeau on Sun Jun 23, 2013 6:38 am

I'd like goto symbol in project to work with a few custom data-structures in our python code. I was wondering if there was a way to add regular expressions to things the tagger matches. Is this possible? If so, how does one do it?

Technically, yes, but it's not as easy as you'd expect.

You need to do 2 different things:
  1. Copy the "Python.tmLanguage" syntax definition and modify it. Yes, this is the toughest part, but if you want to highlight your own "data-structures" you have to add a highlighter for them.

    See http://docs.sublimetext.info/en/latest/ ... xdefs.html for a brief description (and tutorial).

  2. Create a .tmPreferences file with your specific selector and add a "showInSymbolList" key. See "Packages/Python/Symbol List.tmPreferences" for a good example on this.

    Sadly, there are no docs available for this but I intend to write some soon(tm).

Here's an example tmPreferences file:

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
    <string>Macro Symbols</string>
        <string>s/^/Macro: /</string>
        <string>s/^/Macro: /</string>
