A Sublime Text 2⁄3 plugin
Send selected MEL/Python code snippets or whole files to Maya via commandPort
You can install this plugin directly from Sublime Package Control:
clone this repo into the
SublimeText2/3 -> Preference -> Browse Packagesdirectory:
git clone git://github.com/justinfx/MayaSublime.git
MayaSublime.sublime-settingsfile, setting the port to match the commandPorts you have configured in Maya
Optionally edit the keymap file to change the default hotkey from
ctrl+returnto 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.
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")
