Instagoogling

Instagoogling is the fastest and most efficient way to Google from Sublime Text; right now it only works for Windows but a Mac version is on the works.

How it works? Just press F1 and get a magic pop-up that allows you to search and navigate your code at the same time, when you are done with it just press ctrl+w to close it, from either sublime or the browser!.

FYI: The pop-up asks websites to deliver their android version, why? Because that way websites fit perfectly in the pop-up, meaning you can use it without scrolling horizontally or changing the size of the popup, you can always press F11 to make it big.

🍌 How to install

You need to install 2 things for this to work: The Sublime Text Plugin and the Google Chrome Extension

  1. Install the Sublime Text Plugin by using one of these 2 ways:
    • Using Package Control:
      • Open the package control (Preferences > Package Control) and click Install Package then search for InstaGoogling and select it, then restart Sublime.
  • Install Manually:
    • Clone or download the latest release from the repo
    • Uncompress it
    • Rename the folder to “InstaGoogling”
    • Move the folder to your Packages directory, to find it you may go to Preferences > Browse Packages
    • Restart Sublime Text
  1. Then install the Chrome Extension from the Chrome store and click “Add to Chrome”.

🍌 How to use

To start using it just make sure you have Google Chrome and Sublime Text open, then just press the F1 key every time you need to do some Googling, or press the ctrl+w to close it.

Why ctrl+w, isn't it already used by sublime text!? ctrl+w only closes the window if it's already opened, otherwise it does the default thing (e.g. closing the current tab); this also means you don't have to worry about which window is focused (the pop-up or Sublime) because presing ctrl+w always closes the browser first.

This is great! Any tips for maximum efficiency? …Yep!

  • Pop-up is too small for some sites? Just press F11 to maximize it! And press it again to return to normal!

  • When viewing Google search results press tab to go to the first result! Then press enter to open it, that's it! Or keep pressing tab to navigate to subsequent search results.

  • You can select some code and then press F1 to Google it, plus this trick does something else: It adds the name of the language you are working in for better search results.

Happy coding!
