Edit in Sublime

Edit in Sublime

Postby tolmark12 on Tue Aug 28, 2012 1:01 am

One feature I loved in Textmate was its ability to edit text in other programs. For example, if I was updating a wikipedia article, I would:

1) Place my cursor in the browser's form field
2) Click "Edit in Textmate" which opened the field's text in a new textmate file
3) After editing the text, saving the file forwarded the updated text back to the browser's form field.

Details:

This is mac specific, but would love to see something like this for sublime.

I'm no mac dev, but does anyone know what it would take to build this for sublime?

As far as as I recall, Edit inTextmate didn't work very well (if at all) with Lion or newer. There is a more general solution avaliable through an application called QuickCursor, http://www.hogbaysoftware.com/products/quickcursor/, that already also works with Sublime Text 2.

@svenax thanks for the reply, QuickCursor looks perfect, though priced pretty high for a one-function-add-on.
