Local History

GitHub license Total downloads via Package Control Monthly downloads via Package Control

A Sublime Text package for maintaining a local history of files.

Benefits

  • Every time you modify a file, a copy of the old contents is kept in the local history when you:
    • open the file.
    • close the file.
    • and/or loose focus.
  • Available functions are:
    • file comparison of the open file and any of its older versions from the history.
    • incremental diff view.
  • Functions are available via:
    • the right-click context menu.
    • the Local History: ... commands from the command palette.
  • Local History helps you out when you change or delete a file by accident.
  • Local History can help you out when your workspace has a catastrophic problem or if you get disk errors that corrupt your workspace files.
  • File revisions are stored in separate files (with full path):

Installation

  • Via Package Control:
    • Install Package Control
    • Open the command palette (CtrlShift ⇧P)

Settings

Default settings

"history_retention": 0, // number of days to keep files, 0 to disable deletion
    "format_timestamp": "%Y%m%d%H%M%S", // file_name-XXXXXXXX.file_extension
    "history_on_close": true, // only save LocalHistory after closing a file, not when original was saved
    "history_on_focus_lost": false,
    "history_on_load": true,
//  "history_path": "",
    "portable": true,
    "file_size_limit": 4194304 // 4 MB

Local History path

Local History's target directory for file revisions can be set as follows:

  • For "portable": true, Local History will save to Sublime Text/Data/.sublime/Local History/... wherever Sublime Text is installed.
  • Setting "portable": false will change the target folder to the ~/.sublime/Local History/... subfolder of your user directory.
    • If "portable": false changing "history_path": "..." will give you the option to change the target directory to a custom path.

    • the right-click context menu.
    • the Local History: ... commands from the command palette.
