This Code Intelligence plugin for Sublime Text provides an interface to CodeIntel. CodeIntel is a code intelligence engine that was ported from Open Komodo Editor to a stand-alone Python package.

CodeIntel supports all the languages Komodo Editor supports for Code Intelligence (CIX, CodeIntel2) and a few others:

ActionScript, Django, Docker, EJS, epMojo, HTML, KomodoSnippet, LaravelBlade, Mason, Mustache, MXML, PHP, R, reStructuredText, RHTML, Smarty, TracWiki, TemplateToolkit, Twig, XBL, XML, XSLT, XUL, Python, Python3, Ruby, Perl, Go, ECMAScript, JavaScript, Node.js, CSS, SCSS, Sass, Less, HTML5, Tcl, C/C++, Objective-C.

The plugin provides the following features:

  • Jump to Symbol Definition - Jump to the file and line of the definition of a symbol.
  • Imports autocomplete - Shows autocomplete with the available modules/symbols in real time.
  • Function Call tooltips - Displays information in the status bar about the working function.

The package should work in all three platforms (MacOS X, Windows and Linux).

CodeIntel Installation

Before installing SublimeCodeIntel, you must ensure that CodeIntel is installed on your system. To install CodeIntel, do the following:

  1. Install Python and pip (Python 3 requires pip3).

  2. Install CodeIntel by typing the following in a terminal:

# For Python 2
   [sudo] pip install --upgrade --pre CodeIntel

   # For Python 3
   [sudo] pip3 install --upgrade --pre CodeIntel

Note: SublimeCodeIntel requires CodeIntel 2.0 or later.

Plugin Installation

With the Package Control plugin: The easiest way to install SublimeCodeIntel is through Package Control, which can be found at this site: http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/package_control

Once you install Package Control, restart Sublime Text and bring up the Command Palette (Command+Shift+P on OS X, Control+Shift+P on Linux/Windows). Select “Package Control: Install Package”, wait while Package Control fetches the latest package list, then select SublimeCodeIntel when the list appears. The advantage of using this method is that Package Control will automatically keep SublimeCodeIntel up to date with the latest version.

**Without Git:** Download the latest source from GitHub and copy the whole directory into the Packages directory.

**With Git:** Clone the repository in your Sublime Text Packages directory, located somewhere in user's “Home” directory:

git clone git://github.com/SublimeCodeIntel/SublimeCodeIntel.git

The “Packages” packages directory is located differently in different platforms. To access the directory use:

  • OS X:

    Sublime Text -> Preferences -> Browse Packages...
  • Linux:

    Preferences -> Browse Packages...
  • Windows:

    Preferences -> Browse Packages...


  • Start typing code as usual, autocomplete will pop up whenever it's available. SublimeCodeIntel will also allow you to jump around symbol definitions even across files with just a click ..and back.

    For Mac OS X:

    • Jump to definition = Control+Click
    • Jump to definition = Control+Command+Alt+Up
    • Go back = Control+Command+Alt+Left
    • Manual Code Intelligence = Control+Shift+space

    For Linux: - Jump to definition = Super+Click - Jump to definition = Control+Super+Alt+Up - Go back = Control+Super+Alt+Left - Manual Code Intelligence = Control+Shift+space

    For Windows: - Jump to definition = Alt+Click - Jump to definition = Control+Windows+Alt+Up - Go back = Control+Windows+Alt+Left - Manual Code Intelligence = Control+Shift+space

Don't despair! The first time you use it it needs to build some indexes and it can take more than a few seconds.

It just works!


For adding additional library paths (django and extra libs paths for Python or extra paths to look for .js files for JavaScript for example), either add those paths as folders to your Sublime Text project, or modify SublimeCodeIntel User settings. User settings can be configured in the User File Settings:

Do NOT edit the default SublimeCodeIntel settings. Your changes will be lost when SublimeCodeIntel is updated. ALWAYS edit the user SublimeCodeIntel settings by selecting “Preferences->Package Settings->SublimeCodeIntel->Settings - User”. Note that individual settings you include in your user settings will completely replace the corresponding default setting, so you must provide that setting in its entirety.

Available settings:

  • A list of disabled languages can be set using “disabled_languages”. Ex. "disabled_languages": ['css']
  • Live autocomplete can be disabled by setting “live” to false.
  • Information for more settings is available in the SublimeCodeIntel.sublime-settings file in the package.


If you are having problems or SublimeCodeIntel seems slow/unresponsive/non-working, there are some things you should try:

  1. Make sure the SublimeCodeIntel is not being treated as an ignored package.
  2. Regenerate indexing database.
  3. Open a new issue.

Ignored package?

To make sure Sublime Text didn't add SublimeCodeIntel to the list of ignored packages (this happens some times when packages are being installed/upgraded):

  • Select the Preferences/Settings - Default menu item
  • Find the ignored_packages setting and remove SublimeCodeIntel from the list.

Regenerate index

To force re-indexation of the code intelligence database you need to follow these steps:

  • Close Sublime Text
  • Open a terminal or navigate through your directories to find the directory ~/.codeintel that contains codeintel.log, VERSION and the directory db. In Windows, this should be at %userprofile%\.codeintel.
  • Delete the whole directory ~/.codeintel and all of its content. Particularly, if you want to delete only the indexes, the code intelligence database indexes are located inside ~/.codeintel/db.
  • Start Sublime Text
  • Try doing some code intelligence with the files in your project and enjoy a clean re-indexing! (Remember that the database is being regenerated with this procedure, so you'll see it takes some time to autocomplete the first few times, you'll have to wait a bit for things to be fast again)

Opening an issue

If the problems persists after trying the above solutions, open a new issue in https://github.com/SublimeCodeIntel/SublimeCodeIntel/issues/

When opening new issues, please check no other issues exist which report the same problem and provide all the messages from the Sublime Text console (the console is accessed via the ctrl+ shortcut or the View > Show Console menu) and the ~/.codeintel/codeintel.log file (%userprofile%\.codeintel\codeintel.log in Windows) as well as mentioning the Sublime Text version, the platform you are using and the languages you are using the code intelligence on.

What's New

v3.0.0 (unreleased, beta):

  • Uses CodeIntel as an OOP command and package. Needs to install CodeIntel with pip: pip install --upgrade --pre CodeIntel

v2.2.0 (2015-03-26):

The plugin is based in code from the Open Komodo Editor and has a MPL license.
