gEdit a la TextMate


Hands up those of you who have Mac-using friends who rave about wonder-boy code editor TextMate.

Ever wondered what the type was about? Yeah? So did I.

Anyways, had the luck of chancing upon a few blogs that, with a few tweaks, allows you to jostle gEdit into behaving somewhat like TextMate (especially in the context of Ruby on Rails). Not all the features though, but close enough.

    Apparently the site that hosted the rhtml language definition files is defunct… and all the blogs that I see talking about them don’t have their own copy but point to the original location 😦

      Can’t find a replacement for the rhtml-snippets though. Let know in the comments if anyone finds one!
