Synopsis

This is a plugin for Sublime Text 2 and 3.

Highlight whitespaces in documents

This plugin will highlight each tab or more-than-one space in the document.

Installation

Go to your Packages subdirectory under ST2's data directory:

  • Windows: %APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2
  • OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages
  • Linux: ~/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages
  • Portable Installation: Sublime Text 2/Data

Then clone this repository:

git clone git://github.com/disq/HighlightWhitespaces.git

That's it!

Note for ST3 users: For Sublime Text 3, replace “2” with “3” in path names. (%APPDATA%\Sublime Text 3 and so on)

Options

Several options are available to customize the plugin look 'n feel. The config keys goes into config files accessible throught the “Preferences” menu.

Toggle highlight shortcut

The default toggle highlight shortcut is ctrl+alt+w (cmd+alt+w for OS X)

Disable highlighting when Sublime Text starts up

Change highlight_whitespaces_enabled from the default of true to false.

Change the highlighting color

One may also change the highlighting color, providing a scope name such as “invalid”, “comment”… in “File Settings - User”:

{
    "highlight_whitespaces_space_highlight_scope_name": "invalid",
    "highlight_whitespaces_tab_highlight_scope_name": "invalid",
    "highlight_whitespaces_eol_highlight_scope_name": "invalid",
    "highlight_whitespaces_mixed_highlight_scope_name": "invalid"
}

Actually, “invalid” is the default value. If you'd like to use a custom color, it should be defined as a color scope in your theme file. Feel free to ask me how to do it.

Disabling highlighting for large files

Highlighting may be disabled for large files. The default threshold is around 1M chars. This is configurable (in “File Settings - User”); unit is number of chars:

{ "highlight_whitespaces_file_max_size": 1000}
