Define Jump by Hugh Kennedy

Install with:
    apm install define-jump


Atom plugin to jump to the local declaration of a variable. Similar to Atom’s built in Symbols view, but local to the current file and without the need for any configuration.



  1. Move your cursor to the variable you’d like to find the definition of.
  2. Open the Command Palette and run “Define Jump: To Original Definition”.


By default, there aren’t any keybindings enabled. If you’d like to add some of your own, open your keymap file via Atom > Open Your Keymap and include the following:

coffee '.workspace': 'ctrl-alt-shift-m': 'define-jump:to-original-definition'


MIT. See for details.
