Sublime Forum

Does the setting detect_slow_plugins still exists?


Searching over the default settings file for windows I could not find it. But searching on the internet I could find some old topics about this subject:

  1. Forum$12021 Detect slow plugins in preferences overwritten regularly
  2. Forum$4598 Slow plugin warning?
  3. Forum$25618 How to determine if Sublime is slow vs plugins?
  4. CoreIssues$1463 Packages are allowed to hang Sublime Text Indefinitely

Would be nice for Sublime Text to find out such plugins and unload them when the user asks for Sublime Text to do batch operations over thousand files. Currently the only alternative to do such massive operations (much files, as find and replace over 1000 files) is on a vanilla install, otherwise you Sublime Text will stay hanged for thousand of years as it is calling its packages which are doing nothing other than eat your processor time.
