Well, maybe I do. Just experimenting with TM and dropping files on an
open window to see how it handles things. Everything pretty much
everything opened as I expected until I dropped one file and got:
setting up accounts.rtfd/
Haha. The file in question was a cut and paste from a conversation that
Dean and I had via iChat. Crazy stuff.
So I'm not sharing silliness for no gain, what exactly am I seeing
here? Why is TM only registering the embedded smiley graphics and not
the text itself?
Well done guys. I came, I saw, I bought.
TextMate has delivered most of what was promised by the hype that
preceded the long-anticipated launch. I now look forward to its ongoing
First impressions have been very impressive.
Forgive the rudimentary nature of the question...
Wondering how snippets work. For example, the "a href tag" snippet
which inserts "<a href="$1">$2</a>" has a trigger of "ahref"
But when I type "ahref" in an html document it does not seems to
trigger the snippet? What am I missing?
TextMate 1.0 is finally here!
We know that the wait has been excruciating and the longing unbearable,
so we’re incredible proud and relieved to finally be able to say: It’s
It's okay to rush for the download now. You can come back to read the
rest of this later...
TextMate was born out a personal frustration with the lack of a decent
editor for code and markup on OS X. So TextMate is first and foremost a
relief for that personal frustration. An editor that we could use to
or presentation language.
But as all of you that signed up for this mailing list showed us, we
were not alone with our frustrations. The anticipation for the release
has really been overwhelming, so we're extremely happy to finally
That said, this is a 1.0 release. There will be rough spots, there most
certainly will be bugs that our extensive testing hasn't found yet, and
there will be features missing that you'd wish were there. Hopefully,
though, what is there will be promising enough that you'll feel
comfortable jumping on board from the start.
So instead of raving endlessly about what is there (go to the site for
that), we're going to tell you what it still lacks:
* Good defaults for more languages (1.1)
Currently, only real love has been given to Obj-/C/C++,
Ruby, HTML, and CSS. Hopefully, you guys will help us
bring the same level of support to other languages.
* Editing over Secure FTP (1.1)
Work on files residing on another machine using Secure FTP.
* Integrate with CVS/Subversion (1.2)
Check-in, check-out, check-in, check-out. Why don't we sing
that song from within the editor?
As you can see, we're planning to address those points in near-future
point releases that will be free upgrades to all who register version
1.0 of TextMate.
We respect your right to try before you buy, so for 30 days you can
enjoy a completely unrestricted version of TextMate -- without forced
delays at start up or anything like that.
What we would appreciate, though, is that you register TextMate as soon
as you decide it's something for you. We're currently building TextMate
on a 733mhz G4. It takes 45 minutes for a complete build. It's very
painful and has been slowing down development considerably. The first
registrations will go towards getting a dual G5 -- so we can deliver
TextMate 1.1 even faster!
