It probably doesn't help now, but just FYI the TextMate license is
attached to you the user (not the machine). Thus, you are allowed to
use it on multiple machines.
Normal .rb files are coming up as Ruby rather
than Ruby on Rails.
Just open a .rb file and switch the language menu at the bottom of the
window to Ruby on Rails. TextMate needs the hint to know you want to
use the Rails grammar, but after you tell it once it will remember.
I know, but the problem is that when you make a manual association,
then any file ending in .rb will be treated that way, overriding
anything in the language definitions in bundles.
The RSpec bundle has a language file which recognizes files ending in
_spec.rb as being rspec(ruby) files. Alan's article describes how to
set things up so that this works by giving the Language specification
in the Ruby on Rails bundle preference over the just plain Ruby
Yes it means that if I'm editing a ruby file which isn't part of a
rails app, I get some stuff which I don't really need, but I can live
with that until Textmate supports somewhat smarter language detection
which might take the project and maybe even the file path into
And as I said, I did find the fileType in the Ruby language in the
Ruby Bundle, so it's all working the same way on both machines.
