Textmate is one of the best text editors for Mac, no question about it. I have used it for several months now and can’t imagine my geek life without it. Today I am releasing the ALPHA version of the Joomla Textmate Bundle (also compatible with e-texteditor for windows). It features quick snippets for template building and extension building (watch the video to see some of the shortcuts in action).
Currently, the bundle has shortcuts and snippets for:
- Template module positions
- Template XML structure
- Miscellaneous template tags
- Controller template, toolbar template, etc.
- A few commonly used snippets from the JPATH, JTable, JFactory, and JRequest super-classes.
My goal for the joomla textmate bundle is to encompass a large portion of Joomla’s framework in it (or at least the most commonly used portions). I would love for someone to help out with it. Currently it is hosted with Google Code, so go forth and download!
Some great shortcuts include:
- Type module and hit TAB and you’ll get some module position options
- Type jhead and hit TAB and you’ll get a leaned down HEAD section
- Type query and hit TAB to form a database object and query
- …much more.
