Since upgrading to OS X 10.5 the TM_USERNAME variable used in bundles
has been unset.
The following command is the problem:
TM_USERNAME=`niutil -readprop / /users/\$USER realname`
Seems that the niutil command has been dropped from 10.5 onwards and
replaced by the dscl command.
The following gets the current users real name but prepends it with
the property key:
dscl . -read /Users/$USER RealName
I'm not sure how you get the value without the key.
Has anyone got a solution to this? It affects most of the templates.
Apologies if its been covered before.
With the imminent release of Rails 2.0, I've started working on a
project in earnest on edge rails.
I'm finding some things to be broken in the Ruby on Rails bundle due
to the Rails changes. For example.
* generating a migration from textmate doesn't seem to work, it
prompts for the name, and runs but nothing is generated.
* the mcol snippet(s) get confused by the use of 'sexy' migrations
* Partial extraction isn't savvy to the changes in file naming
(e.g. x.rhtml is now x.html.erb)
So what are the plans for tracking the rails changes in the bundle?
And is there any hope that the bundle can deal with multiple rails
versions? I'm sure I'm not the only one who needs to work with
different rails versions on different projects.
How are others dealing with this?

What is the correct policy for making change to a Bundle in the code
I want to improve the "Bold" command in the "Dokuwiki" bundle.
Currently the command is:
Which works, but is rather simplistic. I happen to also use the
"MultiMarkdown" bundle which is intelligent, if you hit the key combo
(Command-B) while selecting already bolded text, it will un-bold it.
if you hit the key combo while no text is selected, then it places
the cursor within the bold typing area, etc.
Since "Dokuwiki" and "MultiMarkdown" use the same syntax for bolding
(surround text with double '*'), that would mean I would just need to
copy the command code from "MultiMarkdown" over to replace the
Dokuwiki bundle's version.
I don't want to step on the toes of either Bundle creator (copyright,
I'm with Leopard 10.5.1 and TextMate 1.5.7 (1436).
I created a latex project : i dropped some files .sty and a folder
with subfolders in the project drawer.
my project :
I can't remove the references to subfolders and I can't remove the
to a single file inside a subfolder like file_e.tex
I can't delete the reference of a file in the main folder like
I can only delete the reference to the main folder
In conclusion, I can remove only the references to file_a.sty and
to mainfolder :(
When I say : I can't delete, I need to say that's when I close TM
and when I re-open , the files are always in the project drawer .
I try to save the project but the result is the same but move to trash
works well :)
Perhaps i take a wrong way to create my project
An idea ???
I use Textmate 1.5.5 on my MacBook Pro (2,33 MHZ, OS X 10.4.9) t
mamage my rails project with about 500 files in the project.
Every time I switch from the active TM to another application and then
back again, TM spins the wheel for about 5 secs. May be it is checking
files or something else.
I only installed the TmCodeBrowser additionally, nothing else.
Is there a way to make TM instantly responsive after activating it?
I have raised to the grade of a neophyte bundle author recently and
released my own perfect TextMate GTD bundle. It's conceptually based
on Henrik's Tasks bundle, but implemented differently to allow for
some additional features. You can find some links at beneath if you're
Now I'm interested in getting this into the official TextMate
repository. I'm quite sure that my bundle doesn't adhere to any
required style- or naming conventions and I'm keen to tackle that next.
Can you point me to some kind of guideline or other document here? I
haven't been able to find anything about the process of getting a
bundle approved and published.
Also, I'd greatly appreciate feedback, suggestions, criticism ...
regarding the bundle. I'm using it myself, but I'd love to learn what
others think about it.
Thanks a lot!

I'm having a difficulty with a keychain item (Internet password)
created by a Blogging bundle.
The Blogging bundle works fine (I can retrieve posts and upload a
post). But when I launch Keychain Access, selecting the keychain item
created by the Blogging bundle causes the Keychain Access to crash.
I selected all password items in the Keychain Access one at a time and
determined that the item created by the Blogging bundle always causes
Keychain Access to crash. Running Keychain First Aid also did not help
(it runs but does not report any problems with keychain).
I'm using TextMate 1.5.7 (1436) on Mac OS X 10.5.1 on a MacBook Pro. I
did not upgrade from Mac OS X 10.4 so I cannot confirm whether I
observed the same issue in Mac OS X 10.4.x or not (sorry).
Can anyone help on this issue? Does anyone have similar issues with

I think this happens sometimes, but not all the time ...
When using the diff bundle, I know there are some minor differences
between two files, but diff will mark the entire documents as the
difference, even though maybe 90%+ of the lines are the same.
FileMerge does the same thing.
However, if I copy one entire file to the clipboard and compare, diff
will correctly define only the different lines as the differences.
Is there a preference I need to set or a format change I need to make?
Is there a way to control which documentstyle, etc. is used when
generating latex from a multimarkdown document? The default settings
aren't what I need but I'm not sure where to start tinkering.
