About

Indent Respectful Sort is a Sublime Text plugin that provides sort functionality while respecting the block structure defined by indendation.

You may find this plugin useful when you have a consistently indented (all tabs or all 4 spaces etc.) file and would like to sort logical blocks (methods, classes or unordered lists) while maintaining inner structure of the blocks.

Note that this approach would only work in cases where indentation is not only present for readability but also for dictating the structure.

Usage

Using predefined commands

Open command palette by typing Ctrl + Shift + P and start typing IndentRespectulSort to use one of the predefined sort options.

As an example, running Indent Respectful Sort: Indented by 2 Spaces & Max Depth = 2 command on the below snippet

First Level Item 5
  Second Level Item 2
  Second Level Item 3
  Second Level Item 1
    Third Level Item 3
    Third Level Item 1
    Third Level Item 2
First Level Item 2
  Second Level Item 2
    Third Level Item 2
    Third Level Item 1
  Second Level Item 1

would yield the following.

First Level Item 2
  Second Level Item 1
  Second Level Item 2
    Third Level Item 2
    Third Level Item 1
First Level Item 5
  Second Level Item 1
    Third Level Item 3
    Third Level Item 1
    Third Level Item 2
  Second Level Item 2
  Second Level Item 3

Running a custom sort command

You may run IndentRespectfulSort directly from the console if you need custom sort options.

  1. Open the Python console by pressing Ctrl+` or by selecting View | Show Console in the menu.
  2. Type view.run_command("indent_respectful_sort") and hit Enter to run IndentRespectfulSort with default options (tab delimited).
  3. You may specify arguments in the second parameter of the run command. Eg. view.run_command("indent_respectful_sort", {"indent": " ", "maxDepth": 2})

Args

  • maxDepth: Do not sort blocks beyond levels specified by this argument. (default: unlimited)
  • onlyDepth: Only sort the blocks in the level specified by this argument. If onlyDepth is specified, then maxDepth is ignored. (default: None)
  • indent: Specify the indentation used in this file. (default: “\t”)
