I'm a TextMate-convert (probationary, at least. Though I did buy a license to show support: I may end up going back on the mac and keeping Sublime for windows), and like what I'm seeing here: not least of which is the possible future dream of finally being able to use the same editor even when I need to be working in windows.
I have a couple suggestions to improve projects though (which is not to say that TM had them, mind you).
The first would be the ability to have a project be "cross-platform": looking at the sublime-project file, basically what I think I'm asking for is for (as an option?) the paths to be stored relative to the location of the file. I.e., in my project it says:
- Code: Select all
If this is saved as "Test.sublime-project" in the test folder, then it'd be great if that could say "trunk" as a mount_point and find it. Then if I move the 'test' folder elsewhere -- most importantly, if I check it into a repository and check it out on a different machine -- it'll still work.
The second suggestion I have is to build on the layered way your preferences work-- and allow projects to have a layer of their own. Meaning, instead of setting settings on a global, then user, then per-language basis, I'd really like to be able to set them on a 'per-project, per-language' basis: I have two projects in Python that I work on with different standards, for example. Being able to set one to the proper 4-space indent, and another to the painful 2-space indent, would be ... sublime.
Finally! A preference such that dragging files onto the Sublime icon, or right-clicking and doing "Open with Sublime Text 2", always creates a new window would be very, very welcome. I.e., to make those UI integrations behave as if one did "subl -n" instead of "subl" from the command line. It bugs me that these files get merged into my projects
Great work, though.
