correctly handle files moved outside sublimetext

correctly handle files moved outside sublimetext

Postby timotheecour on Wed Jun 26, 2013 3:29 am

smultron and other editors correctly handle files moved outside of the application, it would be nice if sublimetext did too.
use case:
file a.txt opened in a ST tab.
mv a.txt a2.txt (in a terminal)
* currently sublimetext will show the tab containing a.txt as inexistent
* desired behavior: sublimetext should know the file has moved

I agree this should be a feature. Although Sublime Text would then have to constantly keep track of what's going on in the terminal....

Maybe a plugin that does this would be possible, this way ST isn't doing something that probably doesn't get used a lot, all the time.

All modern operating systems have functionality to let you watch filesystem events. See e.g. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library ... d7(v=vs.71).aspx or https://developer.apple.com/library/mac ... ction.html.
