TextMate News

Anything vaguely related to TextMate and macOS.


Abracode (who makes OnMyCommand) has now a free utility to assign shortcut to contextual menu items (from OMC or any menu items added by contextual menu plug-ins). So you can assign a shortcut to one of the “New TextMate file here” and make a new file and open it in TM with a keystroke. It’s intelligently named Shortcuts and it’s free.

I am a fan of NuFile, it lets you setup whatever templates you want for any program you want. It adds its menu to the contextual menu items. It is free as in beer.

Good call on the NuFile … I’ve been looking for something like that since the dawn of OS X.


Hey NuFile is hellah-cool.

Document Palette unfortunately isn’t universal yet, but NuFile looks really cool.

Speaking of creating new files, when I use “mate” from the terminal to open a file in the directory structure of the current project, it opens in a new window rather than in a tab. To get around this I’ve been using “touch” to create the file, then “mate” to open it.

Maybe the “mate” command line tool could do this for me?
