SerializedDataConverter

Convert between serialized data formats (plist | json | yaml)

Usage

All commands are accessible via the command palatte. Comments are not preserved during conversion.

Serialized Data Converter: (Type A) to (Type B)

Command that converts an open (JSON|PLIST|YAML) file to (JSON|PLIST|YAML). It will strip C style comments and also try and catch forgotten trailing commas for JSON source files if converting from JSON.

Plist Json Converter: Save (Type A) to (Type B)

Command that converts an open (JSON|PLIST|YAML) file to (JSON|PLIST|YAML) and saves it to the respective file type. File name is determined by the respective setting (plist_json_conversion_ext|plist_yaml_conversion_ext|json_yaml_conversion_ext). It will strip C style comments and also try and catch forgotten trailing commas for JSON source files if converting from JSON. If the file to convert does not exist on disk, the converted file will not initially exist either, but it will only be shown in the view buffer until saved manually.

Settings

enable_save_to_file_commands

Allows the disabling of the “save to file” commands in the command palette

enable_show_in_buffer_commands

Allows the disabling of the “show conversion if view buffer” commands in the command palette

open_in_new_buffer

When a “show conversion in view buffer” command is executed, this will force the conversion to show up in its own new view buffer.

(Type A)_(Type B)_conversion_ext

Allows you to provide a file name conversion mapping from any type extension to a another type extension and vice versa. They are evaluated in the order they appear. The name of the setting denotes which file type to which file the conversion rules apply to. The mapping rules are defined by using the file type as the key, and the desired extension as the value. The mapping works both ways.

"plist_json_conversion_ext": [
        {"plist": "tmLanguage", "json": "tmLanguage.JSON"},
        {"plist": "tmPreferences", "json": "tmPreferences.JSON"},
        {"plist": "tmTheme", "json": "tmTheme.JSON"}
    ],

    "plist_yaml_conversion_ext": [
        {"plist": "tmLanguage", "yaml": "tmLanguage.YAML"},
        {"plist": "tmPreferences", "yaml": "tmPreferences.YAML"},
        {"plist": "tmTheme", "yaml": "tmTheme.YAML"}
    ],

    "json_yaml_conversion_ext": [
        // Nothing to see here; move along
        // Add your rules here
        //{"json": "some extension", "yaml": "some extension"}
    ],

(Type)_language

Allows the selection of a given language file to be used for the converted buffer or file.

"json_language": "Packages/JavaScript/JSON.tmLanguage",
    "yaml_language": "Packages/YAML/YAML.tmLanguage",
    "plist_language": "Packages/XML/XML.tmLanguage",

convert_on_save

When a file with the specified extension is saved, the plugin will automatically run the conversion command on the file to save the converted form to disk as well.

"convert_on_save": [
        // Enable or add what you would like
        // {"ext": "tmLanguage.JSON", "command": "json_to_plist"},
        // {"ext": "tmPreferences.JSON", "command": "json_to_plist"},
        // {"ext": "tmTheme.JSON", "command": "json_to_plist"},
        // {"ext": "tmLanguage.YAML", "command": "yaml_to_plist"},
        // {"ext": "tmPreferences.YAML", "command": "yaml_to_plist"},
        // {"ext": "tmTheme.YAML", "command": "yaml_to_plist"}
    ],

yaml_strip_tabs_from

These are language extensions in which the converter will strip tabs from to ensure multilines aren't quoted with “\t”. It also strips trailing spaces from multi-line strings. This helps multiline strings convert in a pretty format (does not guaruntee all values will be convert to a pretty format, but increases the odds). If you are having trouble converting a file and getting a 1:1 translation, remove the file type.

"yaml_strip_tabs_from": [
        "tmLanguage",
        "tmTheme",
        "tmPreferences",
        "tmLanguage.JSON",
        "tmTheme.JSON",
        "tmPreferences.JSON"
    ],

yaml_default_flow_style

Lets you control the yaml output flow style.

// In most this should be left to "false" for easy reading, but feel free to change it
    // (none | true | false)
    // none shows things like this will (pretty good):
    //     '1': {name: something}
    // false like this (cleanest to read):
    //     '1':
    //         name: something
    // true will have everything like this (harder to read):
    //     {'1': {name: something}}

    "yaml_default_flow_style": "false"

Other Conversion Controls

There are some other knobs exposed allowing you to affect the conversion; they are listed below:

// Detect timestamps on conversion for yaml
    "yaml_detect_timestamp": true,

    // Detect timestamps on conversion for plists
    "plist_detect_timestamp": true,

    // Preserve binary data when converting to JSON
    // This will create binary data in this form which
    // will be recongnized and representing in plist and yaml native binary format:
    //    {
    //        "!!python/object:plistlib.Data": "U29tZSBkYXRh"
    //    }
    "json_preserve_binary_data": true,

    // When converting to a plist, and the structure contains none, the plugin should:
    //    - "fail": let the conversion fail
    //    - "false": set the None objects to False
    //    - "strip": strip the None members from the structure
    "plist_none_handler": "fail"

Linux Issues (ST2 only)

I have provided a fix for Ubuntu. Ubuntu requires a full install of Python2.6, but it only comes with a minimal install by default. You can enter the command below in your linux terminal to get the full install.

sudo apt-get install python2.6

I have provided the Python lib path in the settings file so it may be adapted for other distros in needed.

"linux_python2.6_lib": "/usr/lib/python2.6/lib-dynload"
