TextMate and OS X

Last Build Date: Fri, 17 Oct 2014 03:21:40 +0000



Fri, 17 Oct 2014 03:21:40 +0000

Those who have been waiting with upgrading to TextMate 2.0 should do it before upgrading to Yosemite. While 1.x will function many of the older bundle items rely on outdated system components not available in Yosemite. This also marks the transition from alpha to beta for 2.0. Don't let the beta designation scare you, this […]

Defining a $PATH

Fri, 27 Jun 2014 17:15:04 +0000

Upcoming changes to OS X have caused us to make some changes in TextMate that have been causing some users to see a env: ruby18: No such file or directory error when running bundle items. This is caused by improper setup of the PATH variable, but lets go over what this variable does and how […]

TextMate 1.x under Mavericks

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 09:52:36 +0000

If you are using TextMate 2.0 then the following info does not apply to you. Many of the bundle items in TextMate are written with ruby and were coded for version 1.8. With Mavericks Apple has updated the default version of ruby to 2.0. While we recommend everyone switch to 2.0 we realize that some […]

Nightly Build not Updating

Fri, 29 Mar 2013 11:21:20 +0000

For those that live on the cutting edge by watching the nightly builds of the 2.0 alpha you have been cutoff from automatic updates by an unfortunate bug introduced in a recent build (a9401). You can update by opening preferences (⌘,) and switching to the Software Update tab (⌘5). Here you will notice that the […]

Apple Events & 10.8.2

Wed, 17 Oct 2012 07:02:05 +0000

Recently we have been getting reports of some issues with Transmit, QuickCursor and other applications that use Apple events to communicate with TextMate. Thanks to Brian Webster and Michael Tsai this has been tracked down to a bug in the appleeventsd process in 10.8.2, hopefully this will be fixed quickly by Apple. A workaround for […]

Nested Replacements

Tue, 25 Sep 2012 12:01:15 +0000

While updating the TextMate source to use ARC I needed to update the following code: NSAutoreleasePool* pool = [NSAutoreleasePool new]; … [pool drain]; To use the new autorelease blocks: @autoreleasepool { … } Searching We can find all the autorelease constructs using a regular expression like the following: NSAutoreleasePool.*(?m)(.*?)\[pool \w+\]; I made the assumption here […]

Beyond Document Scopes

Wed, 22 Aug 2012 22:30:27 +0000

The way to specialize things in TextMate is via the venerable scope selector matched against the current scope. TextMate 1 created the scope by parsing the document’s content using a language grammar. Though sometimes, more context information is needed than what can be provided by the document’s content, which is why TextMate 2 has extended […]

Injection Grammars & Project Variables

Thu, 16 Aug 2012 09:21:11 +0000

I was recently dealing with issue #157 and wanted to store a reference in the source. Of course this reference should be an underlined link and allow us to easily go to the online issue, yet I don’t want a 50 character long URL in the source, so how do we go about this? Highlight […]
