Gather information about Sublime Text

Project description

Build Status

Gather information about Sublime Text

This was built for the Sublime plugin tests framework. It provides a cross-platform way to collect data about Sublime Text without running Sublime Text (necessary for creating a plugin harness to Sublime Text).

Currently, only Linux is supported but OSX and Windows support are planned.

Getting Started

Install the module with: pip install sublime_info

import sublime_info
sublime_info.get_sublime_path()  # /usr/bin/subl
sublime_info.get_sublime_version()  # 3083
sublime_info.get_package_directory()  # /home/todd/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages


sublime_info provides 3 top level functions for your consumption.


"""Resolve Sublime Text path (e.g. /usr/bin/subl)

If ``SUBLIME_TEXT_PATH`` is provided via environment variables, it will be used.
Otherwise, a ``which``-like resolution will be returned.

:raises STNotFoundError: If Sublime Text cannot be found, an error will be raised.
:returns: ``SUBLIME_TEXT_PATH`` or ``which``-like resolution
:rtype: str


"""Resolve Sublime Text version (e.g. 2221, 3083)

Sublime Text is resolved via ``get_sublime_path``

:raises Exception: If the Sublime Text version cannot be parsed, an error will be raised.
:returns: Version of Sublime Text returned by ``sublime_text --version``.
:rtype: int


"""Resolve Sublime Text package directory (e.g. /home/todd/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages)

:raises Exception: If the Sublime Text version is not recognized, an error will be raised.
:returns: Path to Sublime Text's package directory
:rtype: str


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Test via ./
