After reading peoples comments about ftp programs last week I tried
yummy ftp and I am very close to buying it. I love that I can select a
remote file and hit cmd-B to open it in textmate. Is this the killer
feature people where asking for?
Does anyone else have reviews for this product?
PS. I liked it so much I remapped my open in text editor in PathFinder
to cmd-B as well so most of the time I am ready for a quick edit.

Hah! That's the icon I'm using too! The red makes it stand out, it
looks like a robot and it's cool! - Eric

Here's my kludged version of it for Perl using TM
commands, which pops up a separate window listing
all the subroutines (i.e. lines that begin with
Make a command:
- before: Do Nothing
- Command: grep -n "^sub "
- Std In: Entire document
- Std out: Show in separate win
- Pattern: ^(\d+):(.*)$
[this parses out the grep output so we can identify the line part]
- Format: $2
This idea can be tweaked to fit the language of
your choice. I think you can pipe it cleverly
through sort to get the subroutines alphabetized.
good luck, Eric

I was wondering if it would be possible to not have the page scroll when a
string being searched for is found on the currently visible page.
I find that when this happens it causes me to think that the found string is
outside of the visible region and so I try to locate it's context within the
document. Somethings it's only 10 lines away but it may not be obvious
because my mental map of the document is disrupted.
Many other apps do not normally scroll if the found string is within the
I'm growing more and more familiar with the new application now that my network is cooperation
with it. But, I have one minor hang up. I see all the examples on the website with black
backgrounds, green text, dark grey backgrounds with lighter text.
How do you alter this setting?
I've discovered a rather annoying problem when using Textmate with
(more than) two projects open, one of which is large. When I cmd-tab
to TM the active project appears immediately, but it takes a couple of
seconds before the other projects appear behind it. If during this
time I alt-tab out into another application, after a couple of seconds
(or when I wave the mouse) the other projects will appear in front of
the active application, but textmate is not active (ie. when I type it
still goes into the other application, but I can't see what's
happening because TM is in front of it).
Any fix would be much appreciated!
When I have lots of tabs open the ones that don't fit on the tab space gets
shunted off to the ">>" menu. This is fine except now when I edit this file,
there's no way of showing that it needs saving.
This is very minor since I've been in the habit of saving early and often
ever since I worked in an office where the power went off on a semi regular
basis :), but could you perhaps put an "*" or something beside the file name
in the menu to indicate that a save is pending? Just to be consistent with
the tab's "x" indicator.
With TextMate 1.0.2b5, when hitting ^-D while at the start of a line, it
does duplicate that line but the first version now misses the first
Someone else could reproduce this.
I am hoping I¹m just missing something obvious... Is there some kind of

I have used TM very little so far, but one thing that attracted me was the
much more ³native² or ³OSX² feel of it, as compared to say BBEdit. We use
SubEthaEdit for specific things (collaborative editing only), but BBEdit has
reigned so far. Yet, I don¹t really like BBEdit. It just feels old (even
the new 8.0), and it still seems WAY behind at least the editors I use on
Windows and Linux (these are primarily Visual SlickEdit (for just about
anything), IDEA for Java work, and Visual Studio .Net for Windows C++ work).
While I realize TM is not an IDE, I thought it was targeted at programmers,
so this kind of thing seems like one of the more standard features to
Aside from that, I¹m starting to get some time to play with it, and the
shell integration aspects seem super cool.
One other thing I¹d really like to see is the equivalent of the ³bbedit w²
command line syntax, so that I can use TM as my Perforce editor.
Anyway, so if I¹m just totally missing it, or there is an alternative way,
let me know, otherwise, consider it a feature request :)
