SublimeLog

A bare-bones console logger for Sublime Text ~~2 and~~ 3.

Description

Sublime Text 3 provides a console (accessible via Control-`) for interaction with the editor's Python-based innards and plug-in architecture. This plug-in logs the console contents into a plain-text file ornamented with logger activation/deactivation timestamps.

The log is erased and recreated each time Sublime Text is launched.

Installation

The most straightforward installation method is by far via Will Bond's superb Package Control. Alternatively, you may clone (or copy the contents of) this repository into your Sublime Text ./Packages folder:

git clone https://github.com/yrammos/SublimeLog.git

Commands

For now SublimeLog supplies a single command that toggles the logger. The default key-binding is Command-Control-C on OS X or Alt-Control-C on Windows/Linux. You may also invoke it via the command palette (⌘-Shift-P on a Mac or Ctrl-Shift-P otherwise): SublimeLog: Toggle logger (on/off)

The key-binding is adjustable in the default JSON file appropriate to your platform:

./Packages/SublimeLog/Default ({OSX | Linux | Windows}).sublime-keymapping

or, to prevent overwrites following plugin updates, in a corresponding file within the User subfolder:

./Packages/User/SublimeLog ({OSX | Linux | Windows}).sublime-keymapping

Retrieving the log

By default, the console is logged in the following plain-text file:

{HOME}/.subl.log

This default destination is adjustable in:

./Packages/SublimeLog/SublimeLog.sublime-settings

or, preferably, in the User subfolder:

./Packages/User/SublimeLog.sublime-settings

Whatever path-filename you declare for the log is relative to your root folder, so please be sure you have adequate write permissions or the plug-in will complain politely.

Note that Sublime Text no longer needs to be restarted for changes to these settings to take effect.

Serving suggestion

I wrote this plug-in as a complement to my LaTeX workflow. Within a dedicated terminal session, or a tmux pane for that matter, I constantly monitor the log file for changes:

tail -f ~/.subl.log

This provides me with a dynamic view of the console stream in a separate window, without the space- and time-consuming tedium of toggling the console view.

If need to maintain a history of log files following successive restarts of the editor, multitail is probably the best solution. It runs on all major Unix platforms and on Windows via Cygwin.
