Better XML support in ST3?

Better XML support in ST3?

Postby dapepe on Mon Mar 18, 2013 8:08 am

Hi there! I have been testing ST2 for the last couple of weeks - it's a really really great editor and I love the plugin system and the usability features. However, there's one major drawback that will not allow me to move forward and it's the total lack of XML support (besides syntax highlighting).

I have been using Eclipse for the past 10 years and I am fairly used to features such as XML-validation, DTD/Schema-validation, code completion based on DTD/Schema, etc. - it would be great if ST2 would just have a decent validation feature or plugin, but it's having none of those.

What features will be added in ST3 regarding XML?

I believe you can use https://github.com/SublimeLinter/SublimeLinter for validation. It uses xmllint, so I would think it is only limited by the arguments you can pass to xmllint. As for the code completions...well you already know it's not built in. I don't know of any plugins that do that for xml either.

Thanks for the advice with SublimeLinter - it certainly helps a bit, I will try to get it to work.
