Sublime Text – Text Editing, Done Right
About Hex Viewer is a plugin for Sublime Text 2 that allows the toggling of a file into a hex viewing mode. Hex Viewer also supports hex editing. Download is available in Package Control or you can download directly and drop into your Sublime Text 2 packages directory plugin folder must be named HexViewer.

I am purposely not scoping this by default because certain themes might not have good contrast colors for whatever I scope them as.
This way, you can add it if you want it and have complete control to make sure they stand out how you like them. FYI, there is a small issue with checksumming from Hex Viewer. I already have a fix that I will commit tonight. This is easily remedied by postponing the conversion of the file data content to hex until right before checksum is ran. I am in optimization mode now. I was able to improve the checksum speed by orders of magnitude on large files and probably exporting as well.
I am cutting down anywhere we are applying code to extremely large buffers. This will allow python not to bog down trying to manage such large buffers. So in the next little bit, I will try to optimize all big processes or at least attempt to further optimize. Loading is pretty good right now, I will see if I can push it a bit more. Checksumming and exporting should be much better. I will do some tests on restoring a tab speeds on large files, and also see if I can throttle highlighting on large selections.
Whether it happens before next commit or not, I will also be threading heavy hitting processes, and hopefully provide a cancel option in case you were silly enough to try and edit a MB binary file. I just need to get some more real world testing in. Version 0. I am only threading the reading of the binary file currently, so the editor still hangs on large files when loading the formatted hex data into the view buffer I am using the replace API command which is the process that takes the longest.
I will probably thread this portion as well when I am sure I am accounting properly for all things that could happen when this is handed off to the thread. I may even break up the loading of the data into the view buffer by chunking the data and using the insert API command instead. This might add a little overhead to the loading, but it would allow for a load to be canceled during the buffer load process as well, and also allow for some visual indication of how far along the buffer writing is.
I have throttled the highlighting of selected bytes, mainly because highlighting them requires me to parse each selection and then find it in the ASCII table time consuming. You will notice that the byte count and displayed addresses in the status bar are tied to the bytes processed and highlighted, so the range of selected bytes and byte count will only represent currently selected bytes.
In the next commit, I will probably just display the first address and not display the byte count until I come up with a quicker way to count the bytes independent of byte highliting if the byte highlight threshold has been reached. I am currently not threading writing the binary file and check-summing the binary file these are very quick compared to loading the binary file, but the time they take to finish is linearly proportional to the size of the file.
I may thread these in the future when I finish addressing the loading of the file threading. A couple of notes: I tried to thread the loading of the content to the buffer, but that is not reasonably possible.
Edits to the view buffer must be on the main thread. So basically, the parsing of the bin file is threaded allowing you to cancel during that time, but as soon as the content is being written to the buffer, you just have to wait. I also have decided against threading any other processes. The bin file loading is by far the weightiest process, and I have done about all I can there.
Checksumming and bin file exporting is much much faster than loading. If you can wait for the file to load, checksumming and export will be no problem. A couple of frivolous things made it in: new progress animation in status bar when parsing binary file, and better highlighting of edited bytes.
I also added another setting to turn off highlight throttling; it is now off by default. Though, while it will pause to highlight the bytes, the locking up is actually caused by multi-select.
I turned off my plugin and tried to do a large multi-select in a normal code file, and the whole editor froze up and never gave me back control, so it is not the plugin. Somewhere along the lines I broke checksums responding to the settings file for the algorithm; this is now fixed. That should be all of the major things I wanted to get done. Let me know if any bugs turn up or you have any feature ideas. I already had the ones from hashlib, and zlib, but I pulled in the ones that are included with openssl.
These may differ on some systems, so I currently check if they are available and only include them if they are. If I find some other ones that are available that I am not including, I will add those. I was so close to getting whirlpool algorithm in here. The algorithm is public domain, and I had it working, but I could not get it working yet when the data is chunked; the hash comes out wrong.
Due to this, I have not included it. If I can deconstruct the algorithm enough to figure out how the get chunked data to evaluate the same, I will include it later.
Since the current supported hashes could vary on certain systems, when the checksum command or shortcut is invoked, I will now show a quickpanel populated with the valid hashes that can be used for selection. Got whirlpool hash working with chunking. I got the python port of the hash from this one site, and it looked pretty exact with the C source. Now the hash comes out correct whether chunked or not. It works pretty good checksumming the average source code files, but if you try this on a 3MB file, it will take a bit because it is straight Python, and the algorithm is fairly complex.
Because of this, I went ahead and added checksum threading. So if you are checksumming a really large file, you will see the progress in the status bar. If you want to cancel, just run the checksum command again, and the current thread will be canceled. I am only adding these hashes because I am finding it fun figuring these out. I may allow in the future to tap in to these functions to generate hashes from selected strings etc, which is useful if you need to generate hashes in your source code.
Maybe I will split out the hash code into its own plugin; we will see. I was going to port it myself, but someone already ported Tiger hash algorithm. So, I have now postponed the commit till tomorrow. I will commit both whirlpool and tiger hash for checksumming, and I think I am done playing with hashes for now.
I may add in some kind of command that will allow you to enter a string and return your desired hash. So the new hashes are added, and I added a new command to generate a hash from a string at any time you need. You do not have to be in hex view to do this; as a matter fact, it really has nothing to do with the hex viewer, I am just tapping into the hash framework I put in because I think it might be useful to some.
Missed some commas in windows and linux keymaps…I guess you can tell I have been testing in Mac recently. Apparently, it was reported to me this small mistake, prevented ST2 from starting in Windows. I just added auto opening of specified binary files in Hex Viewer. Currently it is disabled by default. I am going to wait and do more testing before I enable it by default, but feel free to try it out.
I may have spoken prematurely. I think I have the logic worked out now. I removed the delay. You should be able work as normal without fear of accidentally triggering Hex View. Previews should now function as they always have, and when the file is actually opened, Hex View Auto Open will kick in. Try it out and let me know what you think.
Just enable it in the settings file, and define your file patterns. Decided to add the ability to select text, and hash it. It handles multi-regions too. It just adds the regions together in the order they come in the file and hashes them as one entry. Was always a little curious why tiger hash seemed to give me valid results, but differed from every hash program I have compared it to. The endian convention I was using was different from what everyone else used…go figure.
The hash was still completely valid, and matched the tiger hash web site results, but every hash tool in the world uses the other convention.
Well, now I match them as well to avoid confusion. Would it be possible to have the hex editor open AND be positioned to where the cursor or selection currently is? Say I put the cursor at the end of a line, then open the Hex Viewer, it should open to that same spot at the end of the line so that I can view 0d 0a.

I just had this nail me at work today. New version posted: Version 0. A couple of notes on the last commit: I am only threading the reading of the binary file currently, so the editor still hangs on large files when loading the formatted hex data into the view buffer I am using the replace API command which is the process that takes the longest.
New version posted: A couple of notes: I tried to thread the loading of the content to the buffer, but that is not reasonably possible. Got some new checksum hashes in: sha, mdc2, md4, ripemd I will probably commit the whirlpool hash along with the checksum threading tomorrow. This should be resolved now.
