HTML and Python Prettify

HTML and Python Prettify

Postby myusuf3 on Sat Jul 16, 2011 7:43 pm

I was looking for a plugin, that will fix your python and html indentation so the code looks as pretty as possible, I know this isn't super important but when I am pulling between couple of people with different styling formats it would be cool to automatically format code so I can read it without much trouble. I also wouldn't mind JS/CSS support too.

Any plugins for this feature?

I don't know about Python, but for HTML you can roll your own formatter using pytidylib and HTML Tidy. It took me a few days of trial and error to make my own XML formatter but it works great and I learned a lot about Sublime and Python in the process. Not sure if HTML Tidy does CSS or JS, though.

Just looking into Sublime Text 2. So there is no way to format code other than manually? How did you get HTML tidy to work with ST2?

I followed the directions here:
http://countergram.com/open-source/pyti ... index.html

But instead of "installing" pytidylib, I downloaded the source and put the "tidylib" directory under Sublime's Packages/User directory.

Then I had to change line 33 in __init__.py like so - putting 'tidy' first got it running on Windows.
Code: Select all
LIB_NAMES = ['tidy', 'libtidy', 'libtidy.so', 'libtidy-0.99.so.0', 'cygtidy-0-99-0',
             'tidylib', 'libtidy.dylib']

Then I created a Sublime command:
Code: Select all
import sublime, sublime_plugin
from tidylib import tidy_document

class XmlTidyCommand(sublime_plugin.TextCommand):
   def run(self, edit):
      allRegion = sublime.Region(0, self.view.size())
      allText = self.view.substr(allRegion)
      document, errors = tidy_document(allText, options={'input-xml':1, 'indent':1, 'newline':'LF'})
      self.view.replace(edit, allRegion, document)
      if errors != "":
         sublime.status_message("Xml Tidy: No errors")
