Have you considered bringing back something like TextMate 1.0’s simple output system where
user supplied the pattern to match warnings/errors and then TextMate showed this in a list
(I still remember you being upset when I removed this stuff ;) )?
Mainly what I want to achieve (this time) is having ⌘1-n to go to the n’th error/warning.
I do this all the time with Find in Folder, i.e. ⇧⌘F → enter text → ↩ → ⌘1 and boom! at
the desired place in the source¹, and it feels very efficient and I miss this short when I
see build errors, though the experience feels very close to doing searches, so much that I
am thinking that the results view from Find in Folder could actually be re-used more or
less as-is (speaking visually) for command output.
¹ I have a convention where I always call functions by following the name directly with
the opening parenthesis, but when I declare it, it’s always separated by one space. This
means if I want to go to the declaration of `some_function` I can simply search for
`some_function ` and it’ll be found without the noise of all the calls to `some_function`.
I believe this (and other) simple conventions are part of the reason why I never got into
