With this extension, the content of an HTML node element can be edited in Sublime Text with real-time updates upon saving of the generated temporary file. It is also possible to use this extension to edit textarea and input[type=text] elements.

There are two methods to send an HTML node to the Sublime Editor
1. Use the toolbar button to activate the simple inspector. Then click on the HTML node. To cancel the operation, press the Esc key.
2. Use the dev tools "Elements" panel. A new sub-pane is added to this panel. Select "Edit as HTML", then select an HTML node. When you are ready, press the button to open the content in the Sublime Text editor.

Note: You can edit multiple nodes simultaneously with this extension
Note: Files are stored in the OS temporary directory, so there is no need to delete them manually
Note: As of version 0.1.3, it is possible to use the external editor to edit editable input and textarea elements. This is useful if the built-in editor is not suitable or it is not resizable
Note: You can use the devtools panel to convert an external script or an external CSS resource to an internal equivalent. This way you can send the content to the external editor.

The following extensions are used when a temporary resource is created:
1. HTML -> if innerHTML or outerHTML content is sent to the external editor
2. JS -> if an inline script is being edited
3. TXT -> If an editable area is being edited

Risk impact

Edit with Sublime Text requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Edit with Sublime Text has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
