It's kind of dumb right now. You have to select the pairs only or it won't work.
It also can't handle selections with multiple instances of your separator. e.g. (key: "value:value=>" // this will melt your computer)
Well I just wrote it down because I noticed I've been doing it a lot in PHP and I'm also trying to learn Python.
You will notice my excitement in writing list comprehensions.
It works with multiple regions though
import sublime, sublimeplugin, re
SEPARATOR = ':|=>'
def run(self, view, args):
maxKeyLen = max([max([len(k) for k in dict([[s.rstrip() for s in re.split(SEPARATOR, line, 1)] for line in view.substr(region).split("\n")]).keys()]) for region in view.sel()])
for region in view.sel():
lines = view.substr(region).split("\n")
padded = ]
for line in lines:
key = re.split(SEPARATOR, line, 1)
padded.append(line.replace(key, key.rstrip().ljust(maxKeyLen + 1)))
