Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin Updates

by Andrew De Ponte (@cyphactor)

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 issues (#27, #30, #31, #38, #43, #29).

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.

Sublime Text 2 Guard Plugin Updates

by Andrew De Ponte (@cyphactor)

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 @diogomafra.

@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 @chrislerum.

@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 @brandonblack.

@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 Plugin.

SublimeText2 Guard Plugin Updates

by Andrew De Ponte (@cyphactor)

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 Guard Plugin.

SublimeText2 Guard Plugin in Color

by Andrew De Ponte (@cyphactor)

Hey all,

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 issues.
