Topic: TextMate : How do you configure yours?

Hello,

Being new to Mac, I have just started a trial of TextMate.  Out of the box it seems very good, but I do not see what is so special about it?

How do you configure your TextMate to make it special?

Re: TextMate : How do you configure yours?

That's the thing: you don't have to spend 3hrs configuring your tool to make it work. Just start coding and you'll see. I was also very surprised the first time I used TM big_smile

It's all about making things faster and easier to code. I highly highly recommend purchasing this tutorial on rails and textmate. And you'll understand what it's all about.

Once I watched that the way I coded completely changed. Learn it and love it!

Thanks, does anyone know of any good free textmate/rails casts, or similar?

Open the bundle editor, and each learn a few new keyboard shortcuts wink

I love text mate,

the ability to open files in terminal, running ruby directly and cmd-enter are my favorites.

There is'nt really a big selling feature for me tho. its lots of little time saving elements. The fact I can use it programming without having to use a big heavy IDE is so much better.
