Sublime Text 2 plugin to parse lua on the fly
import sublime
import sublime_plugin
import re
from subprocess import Popen, PIPE
class ExampleCommand(sublime_plugin.EventListener):
def __init__(self):
self.pending = 0
def on_modified(self, view):
filename = view.file_name()
if not filename or not filename.endswith('.lua'):
self.pending = self.pending + 1
sublime.set_timeout(lambda: self.parse(view), self.TIMEOUT_MS)
def parse(self, view):
# Don't bother parsing if there's another parse command pending
self.pending = self.pending - 1
if self.pending > 0:
# Run luac with the parse option
p = Popen('luac -p -', stdin=PIPE, stderr=PIPE, shell=True)
text = view.substr(sublime.Region(0, view.size()))
errors = p.communicate(text)[1]
result = p.wait()
# Clear out any old region markers
# Nothing to do if it parsed successfully
if result == 0:
# Add regions and place the error message in the status bar
pattern = re.compile(r':([0-9]+):')
regions = [view.full_line(view.text_point(int(match) - 1, 0)) for match in pattern.findall(errors)]
view.add_regions('lua', regions, 'invalid', 'DOT', sublime.HIDDEN)
