In recent versions of various Apple programs,
Preview and iBooks, when you go into full screen mode, the sidebar
hides itself until you roll over the edge of the screen with the
cursor. I sometimes use Textmate on a laptop with a relatively small
screen, and increasingly use it in split-view mode on my iMac, and in
those cases things get a bit cramped, so it would be nice if the file
browser in Textmate behaved in the same way.
I had thought that I remembered when the Apple programs started doing
this that I read about it being trivial to implement […]
The functionality for this is `NSSplitViewController` which has support
for “sidebar behavior” in 10.11.
I do plan to adopt the controller, but ironically I am having some
issues with its sidebar behavior because it requires a blurred
background, and I just found a solution to the file browser color I am
happy with, which does not require a blurred background, plus the
controller’s setup of a blurred background causes rendering issues,
but presumably that is fixable.
