This plugin will try to open Sublime Text file paths found on caret positions or partial selections when pressing ALT+D. It has support for custom prefixes and subfixes. Usefull when doing require style JavaScript modules when no extension specified.

Strings starting with HTTP will open with default browser (if binary, ie ends with png), if not, we will read the file with urllib and open the result in a new view/tab. By setting the "open_http_in_browser" setting in your user preferences to true, we will always open the default browser.

use_strict preference will control if the path should be complete and correct, if not the file will not open and the package will not attempt to find the source file.

In theory this package should work like this:

  • If in "Find Results" panel, current file and line number position
  • The exact selection(s)
  • Text between quotes under caret positions.
  • Selections expanded to full lines covered by caret positions or partial selections.
  • Current lines split by (){}[]'"
  • Current lines split by spaces or tabs
  • Current word
  • If nothing works, will check the Full text up to 10485760


Will try to resolve to:

  • Absolute path to URL (e.g. https?://...)
  • Relative to current view
  • Relative to current view minus 1 folder
  • Relative to current view minus 2 folders
  • Relative to project folders
  • Relative to project folders minus 1 folder
  • Relative to project folders minus 2 folders
  • Absolute path

If everything else fails will also look into:

  • Relative to the folder of all opened views
  • Relative to all sub-folders
  • Relative to all parent folders

It supports:

  • A generic setting Open-Include.sublime-settings which could be overloaded for each parameter in a platform specific configuration Open-Include ($platform).sublime-settings
  • Environment variable expansions both for paths in the settings and under the caret
