Shawn (one of our talented developers at Crowd Favorite) has created some great tools for WordPress developers that use BBEdit and TextMate. The TextMate bundle has been out for a little while, but he now has a functional port of it to a BBEdit clipping set as well.1
The TextMate Bundle provides nice, handy auto-complete functionality (with code hints) for core WordPress functions within TextMate. The BBEdit Clipping Set does the same thing for BBEdit users. Of course, there is full support for the Carrington CMS theme framework as well. This should be really handy for both plugin developers and theme authors.
These are open source and hosted on Github, so any enhancements, etc. from the community are welcome.
I can’t wait to do some more coding and see how best to use the new clippings.
- The TextMate version is more tested and mature, but with some encouragement I think he’ll polish up the BBEdit version as well. [back]
I hope Your Gregorius team also made this plugin for Coda 😉
I can’t wait this version (Coda Plugins)
I was just looking in to Coda’s format during lunch today… stay tuned!
[…] editors ? Shawn at Akex Kings CrowdFavorite has released some mac WordPress text editor tools: https://alexking.org/blog/2009/07/24/…ordpress-tools Yoast has his TextMate bundle for mac: http://yoast.com/tools/textmate/ Are there anything […]
This is great! I’ll put in another vote for Coda. I went so far as to download TextMate and try to install the Bundle…but couldn’t figure it out, and gave up.
I wasn’t too committed because I didn’t want to have to figure out another app, plus I love the Coda + Transmit integration.
Thanks for making this available, it looks truly great! If a Coda version doesn’t materialize, I may give TextMate another try when I have more time!
Serious question: Since including wp function calls seems to mean that all themes are derivative/open source, are these bundles also required to be open source?
Not in the least – I highly recommend reading the GPL to get a better understanding of why this is the case.
