Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The title should be rather explicit. When a file is created, I'd like to have a text automatically pasted at the top of it. The plugin would also be able to insert the text on existing files.

Of course, I'm thinking about a custom licence text. I saw this, but it requires a command in order to insert the text.

Does such a plugin exist for Sublime Text ?

Just write a snippet on your own: http://docs.sublimetext.info/en/latest/extensibility/snippets.html

Or you could write a new plugin:


import sublime, sublime_plugin

class LicenseCommand(sublime_plugin.EventListener):
    def on_new(self, view):


import sublime, sublime_plugin

class LicenseInsertCommand(sublime_plugin.TextCommand):
    def run(self, edit):
        self.view.insert(edit, 0, "License Text!")

I'm sure you could optimize it....

You could write your own plugin as above, and fire a call to the plugin on creation of a file, i.e. Class sublime_plugin.EventListener on_new(view)


hope that helps
