Sublime Text has two options regarding its sidebar:
Toggle Side Bar and
Reveal in Side Bar, in many (mine :P) workflows people want to browse their files tree right on the opened file's folder, which isn't possible with those two options alone.
This plugin aims to give an easier and simple option that allows the developer to use the new command
Focus File On Sidebar to open sidebar and move focus right to the opened file's place on project's tree, this way the user can navigate on files tree with keyboard arrows, and use the same command
Focus File On Sidebar to close sidebar and fold the unfolded folders, preparing it to be used in the same way again (this is needed because if the folder is already opened the focus goes to “opened files” section on the top of sidebar).
It's hard to explain how this small changing of focus to the sidebar improved my everyday workflow, I no longer use the
Reveal in Side Bar command, I'd suggest you to give it a try.
By default the plugin adds the
Focus File On Sidebar command to the command pallete (
control+shift+P) and adds the shortcut
Ctrl+K, Ctrl+F (Windows/Linux) or
Cmd+K, Cmd+F (OSX) to be used faster, obviously you can overwrite this options on your
Packages/User/Default (YourOS).sublime-keymap file simply by assigning another shortcut to
If your sidebar is already opened by default the plugin closes it and focus back on your file, some people weren't expecting this behavior, instead they wanted the plugin to focus the current file on sidebar (since you can change the current file while having the sidebar opened). Thinking about this different workflow I've added an option named
close_sidebar_if_opened defaulting to
true, if you prefer to always have your sidebar opened and that the plugin just reveal and focus different files please add a line with
"close_sidebar_if_opened": false to your
Packages/User/Preferences.sublime-settings file, like this.
In the same way you can install all the others Sublime plugins, by running a
git clone email@example.com:miguelgraz/FocusFileOnSidebar.git on your
Packages folder or, if you use Package Control, just by searching the plugin's name and installing from there.
