This plugin is meant to simplify a task I've found too common in my workflow: switching between a single-line statement and a multi-line one.
I usually work with ruby and a lot of expressions can be written very concisely on a single line. A good example is the "if" statement:
puts "foo" if bar?
This is a great feature of the language, but when you need to add more statements to the body of the "if", you need to rewrite it:
The idea of this plugin is to introduce a single key binding for transforming a line like this:
And another binding for the opposite transformation.
This currently works for:
* Various constructs in Ruby and Eruby
* Various constructs in Coffeescript
* Various constructs in Perl
* Various constructs in Python
* PHP arrays
* Tags in HTML/XML
* CSS, SCSS, LESS style declarations.
* YAML arrays
* Lua functions
* Vimscript line continuations
