++ Project is unmaintained ++

I am sorry but did not use Sublime anymore (I have switched to Atom and now VSCode). Anyone willing to maintain this plugin, just ask me and I'll transfer the ownership.

What is this?

SublimeFileSync is a plugin for the text editor SublimeText 2 and 3 providing an easy way to synchronise files between different locations.

The main goal is to keep files outside of Sublime Text projects in-sync with Sublime Text project files. The plugin works as an EventListener and will synchronise any matching files as soon as you save it.

Be aware that the synchronisation is only in one direction, from sublime Text to the outside world.

Installation

Package Control

Sublime Package Control allows you to easily install or remove Filesync from within the editor. It offers automatically updating packages as well so you no longer need to keep track of changes in Filesync.

  1. Install Sublime Package Control (if you haven't done so already) from http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/package_control. Be sure to restart Sublime Text 2 to complete the installation.

  2. Bring up the command palette (default ctrl+shift+p or cmd+shift+p) and start typing Package Control: Install Package then press return or click on that option to activate it. You will be presented with a new Quick Panel with the list of available packages. Find Filesync in the list of packages and press return on its entry to install it.

Download or Clone

  1. Download is also available or clone directly and drop into your Sublime Text 2 packages directory (plugin folder must be named FileSync)

  2. You may need to restart Sublime Text 2 after installation

Usage

Mappings

To synchronise 2 distinct locations you just need to define mappings from within your User preferences file. Open Preferences\Package Settings\ FileSync\Settings - User. If the file is new and empty be sure to create an empty JSON Object { } inside the file, then/otherwise add a mappings section to it.

// This is your settings file. Be sure that this is a valid JSON file
{
  "mappings": [
    {
      "source": "C:/Documents/Work/MyAwesomeProject", //Windows style paths
      "destination": "G:/Apache/project"
    },
    {
      "source": "/Users/Benoit/Work/MySecretProject", //Unix style paths
      "destination": "/www/myproject"
    }
  ]
}

As mappings is an array, you can add as many number of synchronisation definitions as you want.

For each mapping you define, you can also specify a list of patterns to be considered as excluded

Exclusions

There are 2 types of exclusion that you can define

Global exclusion

Open your User preferences file Preferences\Package Settings\ FileSync\Settings - User and just add an exclude_folder_names section as an array.

"exclude_folder_names": ["myfolder"],
"mappings": [ ... ]

Any file that is contained inside a folder that name is included in this array will be skipped.

The default value of that array is set to [".git", ".svn", ".hg"]

Local exclusion

Inside each mapping declaration you can define an exclude_pattern_list.

"mappings": [
  {
    "source": "C:/Documents/Work/MyAwesomeProject", //Windows style paths
    "destination": "G:/Apache/project",
    "exclude_pattern_list": ["*.bak"]
  }

With this any file of type .bak will not be part of the sync.

Sidebar

FileSync could also be used from the Sublime sidebar.

For a workspace folder on which FileSync is not yet active you have options to create mappings from the contextual menu.

Select a folder and create a mapping for it, or select a file and create a mapping for the parent folder.

Force a synchronisation

To force a synchronisation, just click on Sync this file now or Sync this folder now through the Sidebar Contextual menu.

Debugging

If you want to see what is going on, just hit CTRL+` to open the python console.
