Multiple editor windows with multiple tabs

Tag: matlab , tabs , editor Author: taikongshizhe2 Date: 2014-02-03

Very often I work with multiple projects in MATLAB and have a group of files for each project that I access at one time. Having all files of all projects open causes a lot of clutter in the workspace. One can do this for one single set of files by docking which is well known. Is there a way to tab projects, or have multiple MATLAB editors (for each project) open with multiple tabs in each (with the projects files). The question can be found here too. In the same vein, are there other code editors which can be used to perform the same?

Project1
    file 1.m
    file 2.m
    file 3.m
    file 4.m

Project2
    file 1.m
    file 2.m
    file 3.m
    file 4.m

Either in the same window, or in different windows.

Unfortunately I don't believe MATLAB can do that kind of project/file management for you, which is why I use Sublime Text 2. It's perfect for that kind of project/file management... and not to mention the awesome shortcuts and quick editing tools to help you code faster.

Check them out: http://www.sublimetext.com/. The one drawback is that it's nagware. It is free to use, provided you can bare the popups to buy a copy of the software every now and then. Once you buy it, the popups go away. Give it a try and see how it goes!
