We’ve been talking loosely about providing a testing system for TM commands. IMO this should be language neutral, so I (i.e. TextMate) provides a “command runner” (CLI) that takes input and expected output.
So perhaps this is my cue to put out a prototype for this.
Of course if I provide a test runner, this would require the thing to be a tmCommand, not a stand-alone ruby script. But that’s hardly a concern, what I really is focused on wrt. tests for this command is that we collect a versatile set of test cases, so we can tweak the code and patterns w/o doing the wrong thing on code in the wild and/or see how it affects that code.

Nothing really springs to mind. I’ve replaced my Align Assignments with your version and will use it whenever I get a chance — actually considering if I should setup a cron job to regularly poll gist for latest verison ;)
Unfortunately (sort of) I’m traveling for the next two weeks, so amount of coding I’ll get done is likely limited.

A somewhat similar example is this (Objective-C):
Some like to reformat this as:
Presently this is handled by overloading ⌃Q in the “call selector scope” with a special script to do this reformatting. So I wouldn’t make this a goal, to also be able to handle it with Align Assignments, but of course, if it would be possible, that would be awesome :)
Remember that because we just have a list of regexps, we can add the proper pattern only for the obj-c scope, even limit it to inside […] as we have a scope for that — that is, when we (optionally) read the list from the environment.
