It's been on the roadmap for a while, would really contribute to the usable screen real-estate of the editor.

It would be nice if terminal windows could be shown in a panel. Pipe all input to the terminal, pipe terminal output to the panel. Mainly for Windows, where the default command prompt is very limited. Integrating it in Sublime Text would bring easy copy/pasting and custom fonts, among others.

In split vertical pane layout, it would be awesome to do a side by side comparison, or allow for a way for the other pane to follow the line count.

Same functionality as "match_brackets", but for HTML/XML tags.

The background color of the sidebar is quite different than the rest of Sublime Text and stands out quite a bit with a dark color scheme. It would be nice if the sidebar coloring was consistent with the rest of the user interface.

In TextMate themes, you can easily indicate partially transparent colors on both background and foreground elements by specifying a 4-channel hex code. (For instance, #ffffff88 would give you a partly transparent white.) ST2 currently ignores these.

I'd love to be able to define alpha channels in my color schemes, preferably with the TextMate convention.

API to make it possible to add tooltips in the editor (http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2670)


A tooltips API should be thought to make it possible to have function call tips with integrated documentation added by plugins and perhaps color for syntax highlighting. Also tooltips could be made to render graphics or colors (as for instance to make it possible to see the actual color when one hovers a CSS color in the code)

It would be useful to see hints in the autocomplete list for the selected item. Related thread in the forum is: http://www.sublimetext.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1728

It would be great to have an API to control the sidebar. Perhaps it could be populated as a list, with a standardised dict that can map onto actions, this would enable the making of trees, in this format.
( 'Parent Node',
    [ { 'onClick': doBlah, 'title': 'Blah'},
        ( 'Folder',
            [ { 'action': doAShortCut,
                    'title': 'A nested item'},
                { 'args': ['args', 'to', 'doAShortcut'],
                    'function': aCallback,
                    'title': 'Another nested'}])])

Though that's debatable.

It'd be great to have intellisense or a more smarter more customizable autocomplete and be able to use some kind of source code introspection to show tooltips and autocompletes

It would be awesome if you could rename files and folders in the sidebar!

Official answer
Added in build 2046.

Despite not every possible file manipulation function being there, I'm marking this off as completed - new functionality requests will be best placed as separate tickets.

Right now it is only an underline, with option to set the color. I'd like it to be a background color, or border perhaps, with customizable color (or a bracket color based on color scheme).

I would really like to see FTP and SFTP (the ssh access is sometimes the only access) with browsing in the sidebar panel to work just like local folder browsing. It should have a way to save FTP login credentials and be able to select saved FTP logins. Maybe even make it a project type. So you save the FTP project like any other project and when you open it back up it re-establishes the connection and brings back the previously opened files.

I love Python, and I love TextMate. It's like you gutted the nasty innards of TextMate and replaced it with a domain-specific python REPL - and it TOTALLY works.
