ST2 & 3, OSX: CheckBounce, a spell-check plugin

ST2 & 3, OSX: CheckBounce, a spell-check plugin

Postby phyllisstein on Thu Mar 21, 2013 7:25 am

I was starting to get a little frustrated by both the thing I was working on and the way Sublime was checking its spelling; out of the frustration came a VERY sketchy (release early, release often, I guess) interface to OS X's spell-check system. Benefits include a better-populated dictionary, stronger replacement suggestions, and detection of multiple languages. You can check it out at https://github.com/phyllisstein/CheckBounce.

As of 23 March, it's been backwards-ported to Sublime Text 2 and largely functions as a (surprisingly fast) background thread while you're working. Contextual menu items now allow you to learn, ignore, and get suggestions for words (by right-clicking on them). Aside from waiting for new region drawing methods to be implemented, it seems largely stable. Please do let me know if anything breaks, however.

I've updated the Github repo; the package now runs the check in a background process, eliminating the need to do it manually, and allows words to be ignored and learned. Once the new region-drawing keys are implemented, it should prove itself to be a totally viable replacement for Sublime's built-in spell-checker.

Nice project. I think exposing Ignore/ Learn is the biggest win.

Thanks! I think so, too, especially since it irritatingly picks up on LaTeX keywords as errors. However, there's also a handy dandy language-sensitive word count included now, which might rival the ignore/learn thing for usefulness.

In other news, it now has been tested under ST2 and ST3 and runs smoothly with both (after some backwards-porting).

Hi,
I'm very interested by this plugin but I can not find it in the "package control : install packages" list ... so, stupid question : how can I install it ?

You can either clone it from the Github repository into your Sublime packages directory or use the "↓ZIP" link to download it as a zip file. If you download the zip, be sure to rename the folder that's extracted from "CheckBounce-master" to "CheckBounce" before dropping it in with your packages.

thanks for your answer ! I installed it and now I have probably other stupid questions :)
I have an unknown word and when I right click on it, I still have the suggestions for the default SpellCheking plus the classic "ignore XXXX" but I know also have three more options
"Ignore Word"
"Add Word to dictionnary"
"suggest corrections"

I click on "Add Word to dictionnay" (that is the main reason I want to try your package) but nothing happens : the word stay underlined .... Did I do something wrong ?
thanks

Hi there,
Sorry it took me a while to see this. In the last version, the underline stays there until you edit the document again. Just keep typing after you add a word to the dictionary and it should disappear from all over the file. (And everywhere else in OS X: "Learn" uses the global spelling dictionary, whereas "Ignore" is document- and session-specific.) I'm almost done with a new version that's much less of a resource hog and includes some nifty new features; hopefully I'll be able to fix that kludge as well.

Just pushed to Github a new version that's faster, less of a resource hog, and able to refresh itself after a word is added or ignored so that the error disappears immediately. It's fully compatible with ST2 and ST3 as of the evening of April 5th.
