TextMate doesn't have a plugin API. It does support loading plugins but 
there's no API. One uses Objective-C method swizzling to implement 
TextMate plugins.

I have a fork [1] of TextMate that implements overlays that look and 
behave (mostly) like the overloads (errors and warnings) in XCode [2]. I 
did create a pull request for this but I need to rewrite it to use a 
different implementation strategy.

I don't use it myself anymore because it had some problems, so it's stalled.
