+1 for MacVim; I use it exclusively now.
I must be one of the few that got TM1 specifically because TM2 was
advertised as a free upgrade. I figured I would learn what the editor
was all about and be familiar with the basics when the new version
came out, I assumed, soon after Leopard.
Well, that time came and went and there are enough niggling things in
TM, particularly with the python bundle (the language I edit the
most), that I went searching elsewhere. For me the single most
frustrating thing with the python bundle is that you need to add blank
lines with spaces to line up the end of a class / def in order for
code folding to work. That is not only annoying for me, but other
team members as well. A close #2 is also with folding, which breaks
if you start function parameters on a new line rather than on the same
test = some_func(
Perfectly legal, but you need to do this in order to have any hope
test = some_func(\
Legal, but annoying, especially working with a team where I don't have
control of the entire source's coding style.
