Sublime HyperClick


Most of the time when you are navigating and reading a code-base, you need to jump between required/imported (whatever jargon your programming language uses) files. The “Go to Definition” functionality of Sublime falls short for most languages since jumping between these required files needs some knowledge about how the language or package manager of the language is working.

HyperClick tries to solve this issue. Currently, it knows how to jump between files in Javascript and Sass but can be easily extended to support more languages.

Ooh, I like this plugin a lot. Especially when clicking through our React+Redux based projects at work which tend to have a lot of files requiring each other.

UPDATE 2016.11.29: I’ve added support for Stylus to HyperClick. The pull request has already been merged 🙂

Sublime Text 3 for PHP Developers

I admit, I’m a Sublime Text user. Why? Because it’s an IDE that plays nice for a lot of languages. Using Sublime Text I can let my students – from the first year up until the third – write SQL statements, HTML, JS, PHP, etc. in it all without needing to learn to work a new language-specific IDE (viz. MySQL Workbench, PHPStorm, Netbeans, etc.). When spiced up with a few plugins you can get Sublime Text to syntax highlight, autocomplete, syntax check, etc. any language you want.

The link below contains a nice overview of a few recommended plugins to make Sublime Text work rather nicely with PHP.
