Greetings all. First post here, so go gentle
DL'd Sublime 2 Alpha (20110129) for a test drive and I'm having a blast. Kudos to the developers; very well done.
Short profile: Seasoned Linux user (about 15+ years) and know my way around most distros (used to build new Gentoo installations on weekends for kicks). I know absolutely nothing about programming languages beyond rudimentary basics, although I do recognize and marvel at a nicely written chunk of code. Most of my day-to-day stuff consists of editing config and log files, git commit comments, etc.
What I'd use Sublime for predominantly is to write changelogs for the systems I maintain (I'm kinda anal about writing out what i change when I change it; part of having KRAFT disease I guess). Part of that routine is to "time-stamp" all entries. EG:
<< snip >>
2011-01-29 20:13 HRS TMS
* change 1
* change 2
<< ends >>
I've read what documentation I could, and scoured the forums, but come up empty. I'm assuming this would need to be done thru a python script tied into Sublime? (ie, there's no built-in command to do such a thing I've missed?) If so, could I edit the insert-date python function gedit uses and drop it into Sublime?
Any direction I can run with would be much appreciated.
