The Obj-C bundle supports completion for a lot of these via ⌥⎋, but I think it only knows about the standard Cocoa objects, not the ones defined in your classes.

This works for Objective-C. In fact, it’s one of the reasons I might open the project in TextMate instead of Xcode. Documentation for current word is so much easier to get to.

But yeah, there are things you need Xcode for like debugging and switching between Release and Devel configurations. (Is there a way to switch these from TextMate?)
