Symbol list in sidebar

Symbol list in sidebar

Postby xrado on Tue Feb 07, 2012 9:54 am

Symbol list in sidebar is the only feature I miss in sublime. It helps you quick navigate trough code, ctrl+r is ok but it is better to always have them visible.
Double sidebar, one for file tree and one for symbols would be even awesomer. What do you think?

I agree with this. Having both options would be nice

yes, this is why I still use Geany, which has virtually all the capabilities as Sublime Text. (minus multi-select, but find-replace works just as well in most cases)

I agree. Even an over/under arrangement (files on top, symbols below) would be quite nice. Each could be made collapsible.

Also agree 100%. I would buy this and force the rest of my team to buy Sublime Text if there was a dedicated symbol list. It's the only thing preventing universal adoption at our company, as simple as it may seem.

Is Crtl-R (windows) too hard to do? I find that typing is much faster than scrolling down a list and selecting with your mouse... Sublime has excellent search capability and your hands never have to leave your keyboard...

Control-R is quick but it's not pleasant to browse. Sometimes you just want to wander around the symbols and see what's where.

Yes. Discoverability is an important thing. it's hard to just type a destination if you don't know what destinations are available.

That would be great.

A related feature, would be to have intelligent autocompletion for symbols. So if you have a function definition somewhere in your project, you should have an automatic snippet when calling that function so you don't have to check what parameters that function needs.
