I for one refuse to update to Lion until Textmate adds a leather toolbar and a linen background, and I also want to see torn paper edges and maybe coffee stains. Or better yet, since the trend is to make things look like their physical counterparts, can you make TextMate an attractive brunette, because that's what my editor looks like IRL (she's my wife). Enough of this list chatter on purpose and features - what's important is some consistency in the UX.
Just thought some levity would help.
I just have to say you guys are brave, installing Lion into your workflow
all willynilly like that. Especially when the support for 'Now Leopard
Compatible' TextMate is basically just some dudes chilling on a mailing
My name is Grace Lee and I am an undergraduate studying Computer Science at
UC Berkeley. I use textmate everyday for programming but recently I wiped
out my operating system to fix a disk fragmentation issue and lost the
license for textmate. I called Apple to request a license and they told me
to contact you guys directly. They also told me that you guys are very nice
and will likely grant me another license.
Could you please send me a textmate license? The macbook I purchased
(Leopard OSX) came with Textmate and I'm very fond of your software to the
point I cannot code without it.
Is it just me or is rvm no longer controlling the version of ruby that
textmate uses after upgrading to lion?
My TM_RUBY shell variable is set to

Anyone have any ideas how to fix it, or is it just my setup having a
I recommend using GetBundles to update your PHP bundle as well. The default
PHP bundle is great IMO. Command+F1 (tooltip function doc) and Command+Esc
(completion popup) are very useful when you need to peek at the prototype
and exact spelling of built in functions.

There's a lot of bundles out there and from my previous experience
with setting up a Python environment, it's quite a few config options
and both complementing and different bundles out there.
So this time around I'd just like to ask:
Which bundles should I use for a nice environment for website
development (HTML, CSS and probably some PHP).
Is the basic CSS and HTML bundles just fine, or should I check out some others?
How about rendering/previewing changes? Like in python and ruby
development, I can run the program in a TM window, but with HTML it
seems I have to load/refresh the page in an external browser. Or does
TM provide a html renderer inline in it's own window?
I have a folding problem in a perl document. A string contains the
begin comment marker from C "/*" ... what I actually have is:
push @files, glob "$curr_dir/*";
This causes a fold marker to appear and screws up all the folding
following it because there is no closing comment. To get round it, on
the following line I've used a perl comment and in that comment I've
included */.... so:
This does the trick but I do have a fold where one is not needed, and
it looks bad.
It seems that the perl syntax within TM has inherited some C. I know
perl is made with C and that there are similarities, but this seems a
step to far!
I've found the folding markers in the language definition, and /* and
*/ are defined there, any perl experts out there able to confirm these
aren't valid? I don't want to break anything here by removing them
