Jump to Definition

Jump to Definition (Go to definition) is provided for BUILD file labels (typically, this is mapped to the keyboard shortcut F12).

jtd-1

Jump to definition has the following “best-effort” semantics:

  • If the label represents a source file (e.g. //:main.go), open at the beginning of the file.
  • If the label represents a rule (e.g. //:myrule), open the BUILD file at the corresponding rule definition.
  • If the rule cannot be found within the BUILD file, no action is taken.
  • If the label is in an external workspace (e.g. @foo//:bar), open the file/rule in the external workspace foo. This behavior requires that the bazel server for the repository be running.

Copy Label To Clipboard

Jump-to-label has a variant that, rather than opening the BUILD file at the target, copies the label to the clipboard. This can be triggered by the Bazel: Copy Label to Clipboard command menu item, the (right-click) context menu while inside a BUILD file, or via the keybinding (by default shift+ctrl+command+b).
