TM2s HTML output window is somewhat limited compared to TM1:
- it uses sort of *tabs*, so I can't have multiple windows next to each other (handy
to remove clutter and usually welcome, but when I run multiple apps/scripts in parallel I
need separate windows to monitor them)
- it only allows one 'long running' process at a time
Since my projects often include multiple apps and/or scripts that interdepend and I need
to run them side by side (eg client server etc). I used to use HTML output windows, so
that I could have specially formatted log messages be clickable and get me to the correct
location in the source code etc.
So I wrote an application that provides multiple HTML output windows and remembers their
individual placement and size. It is called ApLo, and available as source here:
and wrapped into a TextMate bundle here:
For starters I wrote an Xcode4 bundle that goes with it:
As time permits I plan to add support for iOS projects as well, and STDOUT/STDERR parsers
for other languages (perl, lua) as I come across them.
Maybe these bundles will be useful for others as well.
