"Insert Upload Tag" paths normalization needed

See original GitHub issue

Summary of issue

The menu command listed as “Insert Upload Tag” will insert into my markdown document a relative path with backslashes. This is wrong.

For example You would expect <uploads_baseurl>/uploads/image.png as the output when selecting image.png for upload. However on windows, the output is <uploads_baseurl>/uploads\image.png

Thus, paths normalization is needed.

System details

  • System Platform? Windows 7 in my case

  • Sublime Version? Problem should exist in any Sublime version but I happen to be running v3208

@aklef I don’t actually use this feature (nor did I code it), so maybe you can help me understand it. I find a file that I want to link to in my markdown, and when I add it to my markdown, I always want it to use POSIX format (vs. Windows format) so that it conforms to web standards? Right now, the relative_path feature is returning the os.sep for Windows which messes up the web path.
