According Wikipedia Sublime Text is a cross-platform text and source code editor, with a Python API. The chrome was inspired by Vim. Its functionality is also extendable with sublime-packages; Sublime Text is not open source software nor free software, but some of the extending packages have free-software licenses and are community-built and maintained.


Sublime Settings

For Moodle Development:

Preferences -> Settings (default or user)

Tab size and spaces:

   "tab_size": 4,
   
   // Set to true to insert spaces when tab is pressed
   "translate_tabs_to_spaces": true,
   
   "rulers":
   [
       132
   ],

Sublime plugins for PHP and Moodle Development

For installing new plugins in Sublime2, the best way is to use the Sublime Package Control, see installation instructions

SublimeMoodle

By Frédéric Massart

  • Auto completion for functions, classes and constants.
  • Helper to write testing instructions (Command palette > Moodle: Write testing instructions)
  • Open a tracker issue based on user input (Command palette > Moodle: Open a tracker issue)
  • Open a tracker issue based on text selection or current branch (Command palette > Moodle: Resolve and open tracker issue)

You need to install it manually or add a new Package Control repository

Trailing Spaces

A Sublime Text 2 and 3 plugin that allows you to highlight trailing spaces and delete them in a flash!

Sublime PHP CS

PHP CodeSniffer, PHP Coding Standard Fixer, Linter, Mess Detector and Facebook Scheck Support for Sublime Text

I recommend to enable only the Linter and the PHP Coding Standard Fixer. Mess Detector and Scheck may help a lot but they not fit well with some Moodle coding rules.

The PHP Coding Standard Fixer check the code using the PEAR standard, for installing the Moodle standard you need to:

1 Install the Pear package for PHP CS, http://pear.php.net/package/PHP_CodeSniffer/redirected

2 Download the standard: phpcompatibility and moodle directories from https://github.com/moodlehq/moodle-local_codechecker

3 Copy the previous directories to the PHP CS standard path,

  • in Mac with Macports is /opt/local/lib/php/PHP/CodeSniffer/Standards/
  • in Linux is /usr/share/php/PHP/CodeSniffer/Standards/

4 Edit the settings for the PHP CodeSniffer package, change this:


   "phpcs_additional_args": {
       "--standard": "moodle",
       "-n": ""
   },

You can delete the -n option if you want to see also Warnings

    // This display warnings also.
   "phpcs_additional_args": {
       "--standard": "moodle"
   },

You can put the previous directories in a different directory and change the --standard value to point to that directory

Sublime CodeIntel

Full-featured code intelligence and smart autocomplete engine

Avoid to index XML files (it will crash with Moodle), Shift + Click for jumping to function definitions

I recomend you to index only the Moodle lib/ folder (include the folder in your project in order to allo CodeIntel to index it)
