Markdown Code Packer

Packs code and files into markdown documents. This Sublime 3 plugin converts code blocks to compressed, single-line comments to improve visibility.

Motivation

For my personal note taking and note sharing, I often want to save all project code in my Markdown documents. But too many code blocks disrupt the reading flow and there is no way to extract all files. This plugin allows to pack and unpack code blocks/files in a document.

Examples:

  • show off a technical spike), but also keep the needed but boring config files
  • include a lengthy CSV table you want to send along for reference
  • archive a set of files as a starter template for a project
  • include a small asset in your note, so you don't have to keep it as an additional file
  • archive the contents of an external blog article without overloading your document

Up until now, I solved these use cases by creating a gist, put files in an assets/ folder or zip the whole document along with its files. This plugin removes the need for these.

Unpacked format:

`optional_filename`:

Packed format:

For packing I chose deflate and then base64 (see [assets/FormatChoice.md] for more info).

TODO

  • Use functools.partial (MarkdownCodePacker.py#L37)
  • use file_path variable from extract_variables
  • VSCode plugin?
  • Command line tool (with brew formula)?
  • remember/infer file type for fenced code blocks
