I’ve just published the Goto package which replaces the existing symbols-view with a version that uses Atom syntax files.
The built-in symbols-view requires ctags for generating symbols. I think using Atom’s syntax files will be better because once it is working it works for all new syntax files.
- The ctags project cannot keep up with all of the new syntax files that will be created for Atom
- More importantly they won’t have time / interest for every new syntax
- Hacking ctags to make changes is not nearly as easy has hacking an Atom package.
- It is far more difficult to architect incremental updates to the tags.
The Goto package implements the same commands and assigns them to the same keys. They should overwrite the original keybindings (Cmd-R, etc.) but you should probably disable symbols-view to avoid complications.
