I tried to do this using regular expressions, too, but I kept failing.
Maybe there _is_ an easier solution, but here is what works great for me:

I downloaded Beautify PHP from

Then I added a Bundle Command in TextMate with:
Save: Nothing
Command(s): php /path/to/beautify_php -v 0 -l -b 1
Input: Selected Text or Document
Output: Replace Selected Text

Note that the correct file is "beautify_php", NOT
"beautify_php.php" (which is also contained in the Beautify PHP package).
And of course you might want to change the parameters given in the
command line.

Kind regards,
Tobias Jung
