Unresponsive Plugin Warning

In Sublime Text 2, if you get a warning message:

A plugin (WakaTime) may be making Sublime Text unresponsive by taking too long (0.017332s) in its on_modified callback.

To fix this, go to Preferences → Settings - User then add the following setting:

"detect_slow_plugins": false


First, turn on debug mode in your WakaTime.sublime-settings file.

sublime user settings

Add the line: "debug": true

Then, open your Sublime Console with View → Show Console ( CTRL + ` ) to see the plugin executing the wakatime cli process when sending a heartbeat. Also, tail your $HOME/.wakatime.log file to debug wakatime cli problems.

The How to Debug Plugins guide shows how to check when coding activity was last received from your editor using the User Agents API. For more general troubleshooting info, see the wakatime-cli Troubleshooting Section.
