MayaSublime

A Sublime Text 2/3 plugin

Send selected MEL/Python code snippets or whole files to Maya via commandPort


Installation

Easy Install

You can install this plugin directly from Sublime Package Control:

https://packagecontrol.io/packages/MayaSublime

Manual install

  1. clone this repo into the SublimeText2/3 -> Preference -> Browse Packages directory:
    git clone git://github.com/justinfx/MayaSublime.git

  2. Edit the MayaSublime.sublime-settings file, setting the port to match the commandPorts you have configured in Maya

  3. Optionally edit the keymap file to change the default hotkey from ctrl+return to something else.

Note - Ideally you would make your custom changes to the user settings and not the default settings, so that they do not get overwritten when the plugin is updated.

Usage

To send a snippet, simply select some code in a mel or python script, and hit ctrl+return, or right click and choose "Send To Maya". A socket conncetion will be made to a running Maya instance on the configured port matching mel or python, and the code will be run in Maya's environment.

As an example, if you want to open a commandPort on port 7002 for python (the default port in the config), you can do the following:

# if it was already open under another configuration
cmds.commandPort(name=":7002", close=True)

# now open a new port
cmds.commandPort(name=":7002", sourceType="python")

# or open some random MEL port (make sure you change it to this port in your config file)
cmds.commandPort(name=":10000", sourceType="mel")
