Tab Filter

Tab Filter is a Sublime Text plugin for quickly switching between open tabs. Invoking Tab Filter brings up a “GoTo Anything”-like quick input showing your opened tabs for the current window, allowing you to quick filter on file names to rapidly switch amongst existing tabs.

Compatibility

This plugin is compatible with Sublime Text 4.

For Sublime Text 2 and 3 support, please see release 1.4 - still also avalable via Package Control, though no longer actively updated with new features.

Installation

Package Control

Tab Filter is also available through Package Control. To install, bring up the Command Palette (brought up using ctrl+shift+p on Linux / Windows or cmd+shift+p on OS X) and run the Package Control: Install Package command - now search for and select Tab Filter.

Manual

From within Sublime Text, go to the Preferences > Browse Pacakges menu; this should open up your file browser at the correct location for where your copy of Sublime text stores all packages.

From within this folder you can install…

Using git

You can install within the Packages folder opened by running the following from a terminal / console:

$ git clone git://github.com/robinmalburn/sublime-tabfilter.git 'Tab Filter'

Without git

To install without git, download the source code as a zip file and extract the contents to into a subfolder of the Packages folder called Tab Filter

Usage

Key Bindings

Tab Filter comes with two built in commands:

Note: All keybindings can be overriden via the keybindings options in Preferences > Package Settings > Tab Filter > Key Bindings - User

Standard

This command searches and filters across all open windows and groups, and has a default keymap on Linux, OSX and Windows of: alt+shift+p

Active Group

This command searches and filters just within the active group when using a split layout in Sublime Text. The default keymap for this command on Linux, OSX and Windows is: alt+shift+a

Command Palette

Tab Filter can also be activated via the Command Palette (brought up using ctrl+shift+p on Linux / Windows or cmd+shift+p on OS X) and typing Tab Filter

Settings

Additional configuration settings for Tab Filter can be altered via Preferences > Package Settings > Tab Filter > Settings - User

Captions

Tab Filter can be configured to show or hide additional captions relating to the state of each open tab. The captions include: Current File, Unsaved File, Unsaved Changes and Read Only. Captions are shown by default, but this behaviour can be changed by setting the show_captions setting to false.

Path/Filename Filtering

By default, Tab Filter only shows the basename of open tabs (where they're really files and not just buffers, of course). This configuration can be changed to instead show and therefore allow filtering by the full, non-common path of the file instead by changing the include_path option to true.

Preview Currently Selected Entry

By default, Tab Filter only focuses the tab if it gets selected. To always focus/preview the currently highlighted entry, set preview_tab to true. Note that this currently only works with a single group layout (no split window).

Group Caption

By default, Tab Filter only shows information about the filename being worked on, and optionally some meta information available via Path and Captions mentioned above. With this feature, for users who make heavy use of multi-pane layouts, you can now include an indicator of what group a tab belongs to, meaning you can easily see which pane a tab belongs in and differentiate between similarly named files open across different panes. Set show_group_caption to true to enable the feature. Note: Even if enabled, the feature will only display if there is more than one group, otherwise it's a fairly pointless caption to distract from the relevant information, since every group would be Group: 1 anyhow.
