I use Sublime Text primarily for R code. I found a version of send selection to R in the package forum and have been using it. It sort of works, but it handles single quotes and double quotes poorly and inconsistently. That is, it works some of the time but not all of the time. Since the R syntax requires use of quotes (I can't lose those entirely), I need to address this issue.
I am using this attached code (sits in a file called Send-Selection.py in my ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User folder. I run ST2 on OSX 10.7.3
import sublime, sublime_plugin
import os, subprocess, string
def run(self, edit):
# get selection
selection = ""
for region in self.view.sel():
selection+=self.view.substr(region) + "\n"
selection = (selection::-1].replace('\n'::-1], '', 1))::-1]
# only proceed if selection is not empty
extension = os.path.splitext(self.view.file_name())
# R file
# define list of arguments
args='osascript','-e','tell app "R64" to activate']
# split selection into lines
# add code lines to list of arguments
for part in selection:
args.extend('-e', 'tell app "R64" to cmd "' + part + '"\n'])
# execute code and activate ST2
p = subprocess.Popen(args)
subprocess.Popen("""osascript -e 'tell app "Sublime Text 2" to activate' """, shell=True)
How it fails:
If I select this line
from a file called test.r (and ST2 recognizes that it is R), and press ⌘ + Enter, it does send the code to R, but escapes the ' so I get this error in my R interactive console:
Error in source(../initialize.r) : object '..' not found
How do I overcome this? Thanks for any advice and I am happy to clarify if anything I've said is unclear.
