Assign a shortcut key to sort tabs in Sublime Text. Tabs will also be sorted within their groups.


Any way to convert this to a full package? Then you can receive pull request.


Do you mean a repo? (I'm fairly new to GitHub - what's a pull request?).

Yes, I'll create a repo, probably this evening. Andy.


Nice, that way we can add for example "Sort Tabs" to the "tab context menu" and I don't know, option to automatically sort these? etc etc
