FAQ

How to Customize Indent Colors?

First, you have to decide how many colors you want to use for indents.

Say, if you want to use 6 colors, add the following into plugin's level_colors setting.

"level_colors": [
    "region.indent.0",
    "region.indent.1",
    "region.indent.2",
    "region.indent.3",
    "region.indent.4",
    "region.indent.5",
],

These region.indent.0region.indent.5 are called scopes in Sublime Text. Names of scope aren't important but I just feel these names are self-explanatory.

Next, you have to add coloring rules into your color scheme for those scopes. For example, adding the following rules into your color scheme.

  • foreground is the indent line color when level_style is set to line.
  • background is the indent background color when level_style is set to block.

Valid color formats are listed on Sublime Text's official document.

    "background": "rgba(229, 57, 53, 0.2)",
    "scope": "region.indent.0",
},
{
    // green
    "foreground": "rgba(67, 160, 71, 0.35)",
    "background": "rgba(67, 160, 71, 0.2)",
    "scope": "region.indent.1",
},
{
    // blue
    "foreground": "rgba(30, 136, 229, 0.35)",
    "background": "rgba(30, 136, 229, 0.2)",
    "scope": "region.indent.2",
},
{
    // orange
    "foreground": "rgba(251, 140, 0, 0.35)",
    "background": "rgba(251, 140, 0, 0.2)",
    "scope": "region.indent.3",
},
{
    // purple
    "foreground": "rgba(142, 36, 170, 0.35)",
    "background": "rgba(142, 36, 170, 0.2)",
    "scope": "region.indent.4",
},
{
    // cyan
    "foreground": "rgba(0, 172, 193, 0.35)",
    "background": "rgba(0, 172, 193, 0.2)",
    "scope": "region.indent.5",
},

How to Disable Rendering by Default and Enable Manually?

You can set the enabled_selector plugin setting to "nothing". Because no scope is named nothing, the plugin won't render indents.

Then, you can enable rendering manually by one of the following ways.

  • From the command palette: RainbowIndent: Disable for This View (Forced)
  • From the context menu: RainbowIndent » Disable for This View (Forced)
  • Create and trigger a keybinding for the rainbow_indent_view_toggle command for convenience.

Known Issues

  • There is no way to draw a region, where there is nothing, via ST's plugin APIs.
  • Sometimes, ST seems to draw regions wrongly. Not sure how to stably reproduce this.
