Projectionist Lint Test

Go to an alternate file and more.

Features

  • jump between test and implementation files
  • open/jump to an alternate file from the Side Bar
  • .projections.json file support (including JSON schema validation)
  • built-in projections for Elixir, Ruby, and Sublime package development
  • public API for other packages to use
  • work on all platforms

Installation

  1. Install the Sublime Text Package Control package if you don't have it already.
  2. Open the command palette and start typing Package Control: Install Package.
  3. Enter Projectionist.

Usage

The package implements the logic that was originally introduced by Tim Pope in his vim-projectionist plugin. And the main idea is to:

provide granular project configuration using “projections”.

The package exposes the following commands to work with projections:

  • projectionist_open_alternate - open an alternate file for the current file.
    In Sublime Text 4 this command supports "mode": "side_by_side", to open an alternate file in a side-by-side view. This command is also available in the Command Palette (Projectionist: Open alternate) as well as in the Side Bar. In the Side Bar there is also an option to jump(reveal in Side Bar) an alternate file rather than open it.

Check Default.sublime-commands to see the list of all available commands.

What are projections?

Projections are maps from filenames and globs to sets of properties describing the file. The simplest way to define them is to create a .projections.json in the root of the project, but there are other ways to define projection too (see Sublime Text integration section).
The package ships with a JSON schema for the .projections.json file to provide validation and auto-completion (requires LSP-json package).

Here's a simple example for a Maven project:

{
  "src/main/java/*.java": {
    "alternate": "src/test/java/{}.java",
  },
  "src/test/java/*.java": {
    "alternate": "src/main/java/{}.java",
  }
}

In property values, {} will be replaced by the portion of the glob matched by the *. You can also chain one or more transformations inside the braces separated by bars, e.g. {dot|hyphenate}. The complete list of available transformations is as follows:

Name Behavior
dot / to .
underscore / to _
backslash / to \
colons / to ::
hyphenate _ to -
blank _ and - to space
uppercase uppercase
camelcase foo_bar/baz_quux to fooBar/bazQuux
snakecase FooBar/bazQuux to foo_bar/baz_quux
capitalize capitalize first letter and each letter after a slash
dirname remove last slash separated component
basename remove all but last slash separated component
singular singularize
plural pluralize
file absolute path to file
project absolute path to project
open literal {
close literal }
nothing empty string
vim no-op (include to specify other implementations should ignore)

From a globbing perspective, * is actually a stand in for **/*. For advanced cases, you can include both globs explicitly: test/**/test_*.rb. When expanding with {}, the ** and * portions are joined with a slash. If necessary, the dirname and basename expansions can be used to split the value back apart.

As of now, the package supports only some of the properties from the original implementation, but support to more properties will be added in the future. Here are the properties that are currently supported:

  • alternate
    Determines the destination of the projectionist_open_alternate command.
    If this is a list, the first readable file will be used. Will also be used as a default for related.

  • template
    Array of lines to use when creating a new file.

These are the properties that are not supported yet:

  • console
    Command to run to start a REPL or other interactive shell.
    This is useful to set from a * projection or on a simple file glob like *.js.
    Will also be used as a default for start.
    Expansions are shell escaped.

  • dispatch
    Expansions are shell escaped.

  • make
    Sets makeprg.
    This is useful to set from a * projection.
    Expansions are shell escaped.

  • path
    Additional directories to prepend to path.
    Can be relative to the project root or absolute.
    This is useful to set on a simple file glob like *.js.

  • related
    Indicates one or more files to search when a navigation command is called without an argument, to find a default destination.
    Related files are searched recursively.

  • start
    Command to run to “boot” the project.
    Examples include lein run, rails server, and foreman start.
    This is useful to set from a * projection.
    Expansions are shell escaped.

  • type
    Declares the type of file and creates a set of navigation commands for opening files that match the glob.

Sublime Text integration

The package supports projections from the following sources:

  • local - projections defined in the project config file (e.g. MyProject.sublime-project)
  • file - projections defined in the .projections.json file
  • global - heuristic projections defined in the global settings
  • builtin - built-in heuristic projections that ship with the package

The lookup order is determined by the lookup_order setting and it is:

Error: language “jsonc” is not supported
{
  "lookup_order": [
    "local", // first look in the project settings
    "file", // then, in the .projections.json file
    "global", // then, the `heuristic_projections` from the package settings
    "builtin" // and finally, he built-in heuristic projections
  ]
}

To avoid evaluation projections from some of the sources, remove them from the lookup_order setting:

Error: language “jsonc” is not supported
{
  "lookup_order": ["local", "file"] // evaluate only local and .projections.json projections
}

The order of the items in the lookup_order setting is important, so switching items in the array will change the lookup order:

Error: language “jsonc” is not supported
{
  "lookup_order": [
    "file", // first look in the .projections.json file
    "local", // then, in the project settings
    "builtin", // then, the built-in heuristic projections
    "global" // and finally, the `heuristic_projections` from the package settings
  ]
}

Given the number of projection sources, the package provides the projectionist_output_projections command (or Projectionist: Output projections in the Command Palette) to output all the projections to the Sublime Text console.

The lookup_order also determines how projections with the same pattern are handled. So, for example, if the same pattern is defined in multiple sources, the properties will be merged obeying the order defined in the lookup_order setting.
So, for example, if there is a local projection:

{
  "lib/*.ex": {
    "alternate": "test/{}_test.exs",
    "prop2": "value2"
  }
}

and a built-in projection:

{
  "lib/*.ex": {
    "alternate": "spec/{}_spec.exs",
    "prop1": "value1"
  }
}

the resulting projection will be:

{
  "lib/*.ex": {
    "alternate": "test/{}_test.exs",
    "prop1": "value1",
    "prop2": "value2"
  }
}

And to avoid overriding projection defined on deeper levels, the append/prepend prefix can be used, for example:

{
  "lib/*.ex": {
    "prepend_alternate": "spec/{}_spec.exs",
    "prop1": "value1"
  }
}

will result in:

{
  "lib/*.ex": {
    "alternate": [
      "spec/{}_spec.exs",
      "test/{}_test.exs"
    ],
    "prop1": "value1",
    "prop2": "value2"
  }
}

This can be very useful to, say, fine-tune projections defined in the .projections.json file since this file can be used by other editors (e.g. VIM, VSCode).

As of now, only the alternate property supports these prefixes.

Local projections

Local projections can be defined in the project settings:

{
  "folders": [
    {
      "path": ".",
    }
  ],
  "settings": {
    "Projectionist": {
      "projections": {
        "plugin/*.py": {
          "alternate": "tests/{dirname}/test_{basename}.py",
        },
        "tests/**/test_*.py": {
          "alternate": "plugin/{}.py",
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Heuristic projections

Heuristic projections can be defined through the variable heuristic_projections in the global setting and they behave as a dictionary mapping between a string describing the root of the project and a set of projections. The keys of the dictionary are files and directories that can be found in the root of a project, with & separating multiple requirements and | separating multiple alternatives.
You can also prefix a file or directory with ! to forbid rather than require its presence.

In the example below, the first key requires a file named mix.exs and a file named test/test_helper.exs.

{
  "heuristic_projections": {
    "mix.exs&test/test_helper.exs": {
      "lib/*.ex": {
        "alternate": "test/{}_test.exs",
        "template": [
          "defmodule {camelcase|capitalize|dot} do",
          "end"
        ]
      },
      "test/*_test.exs": {
        "alternate": "lib/{}.ex",
        "template": [
          "defmodule {camelcase|capitalize|dot}Test do",
          "  use ExUnit.Case",
          "",
          "  alias {camelcase|capitalize|dot}",
          "end",
        ]
      }
    }
  }
}

Built-in projections

The package comes with the following list of built-in projections and they are enabled by default:

To disable some of the built-in projections, remove them from the builtin_heuristic_projections setting:

Error: language “jsonc” is not supported
{
  "builtin_heuristic_projections": ["elixir", "ruby"] // disable the sublime projection
}

Caching

For performance reasons, heuristic projections (both global and built-in) are determined once per project and then cached. The same goes for the .projections.json file, it is parsed and cached per project. So it is important to clear the cache after changing heuristic projections or updating the .projections.json file.
The cache can be cleared with the projectionist_clear_cache command or via the Projectionist: Clear Cache command from the Command Palette.

Project folders and subprojects

The package supports multiple project folders. It can be very useful when there is a nested folder that contains a separate project. The package can detect this situation and use this information for heuristic projections calculation and detecting the .projections.json file.

Another way to handle nested projects is to use the subprojects settings (usually in the project config)

{
  "folders": [
    {
      "path": ".",
    }
  ],
  "settings": {
    "Projectionist": {
      "subprojects": [
        "subfolder1/subfolder1_1",
        ["subfolder2", "subfolder2_1"]
      ]
    }
  }
}

A subproject can be either a string or an array of strings(the path separator will be added automatically in this case).

Public API

To allow other packages to find alternate files and more, the package exposes the projectionist module that acts as the public API.
Check plugin/api.py for implementation details and tests/test_api.py for test cases.

find_alternate_file

Allows to find an alternate file for a given file and root directory.
Returns a tuple of (exists, alternate) where exists is a boolean indicating whether the alternate file exists and alternate is the path to the alternate file or None if no alternate file is defined.

try:
    from projectionist import find_alternate_file

    root = "~/code/project"
    file = "~/code/project/folder1/file1.py"
    exists, alternate = find_alternate_file(root, file)

    if alternate is None:
        print("No alternate file defined")
    elif exists:
        print("Alternate file exists")
    else:
        print("Alternate file defined but does not exist")
except ImportError:
    print("Projectionist is not installed")

Roadmap

  • support more original projectionist features, like type, console, dispatch
