Access to attached pages

Postby timberwillow on Wed Jan 30, 2013 4:46 am

I am have recently downloaded Sublime Text2. I come from a history of dreamweaver and textwrangler. There are many, many things I like much better about Sublime. However, there is one key element that dreamweaver has and Sublime doesn't.
(And I apologize if this already exists, but I wasn't able to find any information about it online.)

It would be extremely helpful to have your .html page automatically bring up mini-tabs of the connected pages (such as the css and javascript files). Dreamweaver has the main tags (the html files) then mini-tabs that can access pages that are connected within the <head> tag.

Other than that, I think Sublime is much better than Dreamweaver.

I'd like to second this request. I come from the world of Dreamweaver as well. I fully understand why DW is shunned by many in the web dev community, but this feature is undeniably powerful. For the record, I code by hand, and the only reason that Dreamweaver is in my pipeline is because it offers certain project organizational features that I can't find in other (super-bloated) editors without having to jump through flaming hoops only to end up with something that only *partially* works.

There's another feature of Dreamweaver (I can see the eyerolls) that is equally as powerful: automatic project file updates for open or closed files.

Here's an example: Say you have a flat project that contains multiple HTML files and a linked CSS file. In Dreamweaver, if you change the name or location of the CSS file in DW's file browser, you'll be prompted with a message asking you if you want to update the links to that CSS file in all the files that contain a reference to it - whether those files are open or not. This same behavior applies to other types of linked files within a project.
