I'm using ST3 as an external editor to display error logs from another application (katana) with syntax highlighting. So katana launches sublime via a wrapper script that includes
sublime_text --wait pathToErrorLog.txt. My package includes the .tmLanguage with highlighting rules and .tmTheme for custom color scheme, and an EventListener subclass that uses on_load() to watch for katana log files being opened.
This works perfectly when a ST3 instance happens to be already running. However, if ST3 is being newly launched via the above command, on_load() doesn't get called after the log is loaded. Also tried on_load_async(), same problem. Should I be using a different callback? I'm wondering if maybe plugins have not finished loading and registering callbacks by the time this first buffer is loaded. Thanks!
class PxOpenKatanaRenderLog (sublime_plugin.EventListener):
def on_load (self, view):
filePath = view.file_name()
fileName = os.path.basename (filePath)
if fileName.startswith ('katanaRenderLog'):
view.settings().set ('syntax', 'Packages/Katana/KatanaRenderLog.tmLanguage')
view.settings().set ('color_scheme', 'Packages/Katana/KatanaRenderLog.tmTheme')
view.settings().set ('line_numbers', False)
view.settings().set ('fade_fold_buttons', False)
