I woke up early this morning and thought it was time for a little
sublime_guard love. I went through
and tackled all of the syntax highlighting issues. This included the following
I also cleaned up a number of tickets that were lying around and had either
been completed already or were tickets that were invalid.
I also started a branch for adding python3 support to the plugin. The branch is
named python3_support. I would love it if anyone out there in the ether
would grab that branch, test it out, and give me some feedback.
Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy the updates. As usual if you installed from
Package Control just restart Sublime Text 2. If you installed manually then
just pull the latest version down with Git.
See you all next time.
It has been a while since I have provided an update on my Sublime Text 2 Guard
Plugin and I just made some changes
so I figured I would make a quick post. The project has recently had a number
of contributions which I will list in the changes below.
I have been completely stoked with the growing usage of this plugin as well as
the abundance of contributions people have been making to the plugin. In this
update there are a number of people that need to be called out with special thanks.
@diogomafra provided a Clear output when
predefined text found feature. I am sure many users will find this feature a
nice addition to smoothing out their workflow. Thank you for your contribution
@chrislerum provided rbenv support. I know
that this feature will be huge for a number of the users as this was a highly
requestd feature. Thank you so much for your contribution
@brandonblack provided the ability to
function without bundler. This will allow users who aren’t using bundler to be
able to use this plugin. I think this is a great addition as the more people
we can get using this plugin the more feedback we can get. Hence, the better it
will become. Thanks for your contribution
@whitequark provided the basis for the Run
all Tests & Show Guard Output feature. I know a number of developers who have
been waiting for something like this to fit their personal workflow. Thank you
very much for your contribution @whitequark.
A big thanks goes out to all the above listed contributors and all of our
prior contributors. Thank you all for helping make this a solid very useful
plugin for the development community. As usual please make issues for any bugs
or feature requsets you have at Sublime Text 2 Guard
Well, I got some more updates for you all.
My Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin has recently been recognized as an essential
Sublime Text 2 plugin on a nettuts+ blog post. Thanks to this publicity and the
exposure via Package Control, Twitter, GitHub, and Google I have gotten some
decent feedback, especially around my recent addition of colored output. Thanks
to all that feedback I have pushed out the following improvements to the
Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin:
- Support for directory paths with spaces (#19, Thanks @ffmike)
- Fixed dash based coloring issue (#16)
- Fixed single quote based coloring issue (#17)
- Fixed question mark based coloring issue (#20)
- Fixed period based coloring issue (#21)
- Fixed success dot section identification & coloring issue (#22)
- Fixed a second single quote based coloring issue (#23)
- Added command relativity (#24)
The above break down of improvements include primarily a bunch of coloring
fixes, command relativity, and one very important issue that deserves some
recognition, issue #19 by
@ffmike. This is the Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin’s
first contribution. Much thanks goes out to @ffmike
for being our first contributor.
As usual if any of you have identified bugs or features that you would like
added please submit them on the GitHub Issues page for the Sublime Text 2
I know there are a number of you who have been eagerly awaiting this moment. I
sure have been. I am proud to announce the first release of the Sublime Text 2
Guard Plugin that provides colored
output. Basically, it ended up that I had to define a language file to identify
the entities in the output and then define a theme to color those identified
entities. Once, I did that I simply programatically set the color_scheme and
syntax options for the output panel and like magic colors worked. Given the
complexity of the language definition and the limited test cases I had when
developing I am sure there are going to be some bugs to work out. So, as usual
please create issues if you find any of these
My Sublime Text 2 Guard plugin has been out for a couple weeks now and it has
definitely gotten some more usage under its belt. Thanks to everyone for your
usage and feedback. As a result of the feedback and user generated issues I
have released a new version to tighten it up a bit both from a user experience
stand point as well as a stability standpoint. This release includes the
- Now installable via Package Control
- Fixed Guard won’t start when installled via Package Control (issue #11)
- Added auto show output feature (issue #12)
#!/bin/bash in internal scripts
