A package that adds support for the openSCAD language in Sublime Text 2.

I made improvements mainly on the coloring part, derivative of the auto complete created by uminded.

Open Sublime Text 2.
Got to Preferences->Browse Packages.
Copy the unzipped "OpenSCAD" folder in there.
Open all your scad files!

Thank You. Thank You.

This is awesome!
I am a long tile user of sublime text, and just started using OpenSCAD.
From the moment i started using it i missed many of the shortcuts and aut complete i was used to form Sublime when coding.

But, since i am pretty new to OpenSCAD i need to look allot at the preview to se WTF i am making :)

  • Is there any easy way to get a preview of the figure, or link the file to openSCAD in another window ?

Okay. I just did a bit of googling and found the answer :)
This is AWSOME!!!
Thanks a lot for making this awesome tool and making me experience with OpenSCAD even better!

You should add 'Comments.tmPreferences' to the package. I took the 'Comments (C++).tmPreferences' from the C++ package folder and modified it slightly and it works.

Thanks for the idea, I added a new version including this file and it works like a charm :)
