I don't think that is a good idea for someone in the learning stage. I use Xcode for project management, debugger and the built-in Clang, and TextMate for everything else.

Unless you really know what you are doing, I'd think trying to do Cocoa development without using Xcode would be an uphill battle and end up costing you much more time than it will save you.
But I am looking forward to read other folks opinion, being that I use TextMate full time for Cocoa development.
I'm going to take your advice and use Xcode for building/project management and stick with Textmate for editing. Maybe once I get more comfortable with Cocoa I will look into Xcode alternatives.
Of course, I'm still interested in others opinions.
