TextMate has a basic, built-in blogging bundle that provides some decent features. You can use a variety of syntaxes (HTML, Markdown, etc.) to pen your next digg-worthy post, and the bundle also has rudimentary support for retrieving posts from your blog to edit. It's not bad, but it isn't stellar e...

I'm a big fan of Twitter, and not just because I am on the top 100 Twitter user list (though that doesn't hurt). It is just plain old fun. I also enjoy the heck out of TextMate, which is also fun to use, though in a different way. Twitter and TextMate are two great tastes that, one would imagine, ta...

In the market of Mac users who have text to edit, TextMate has become one of the household names that we turn to the most. Likewise for the blogging world, few - if any - services come to mind before WordPress. Brett Terpstra of Circle Six Design knows this, and that is why his AutoTag Bundle for Te...

Some people balk at the idea of paying for a text editor. 'Doesn't OS X ship with a pretty good text editor called TextEdit,' they say. That is very true, but if you make your living creating text documents (whether they be code, blog posts, or content of some other kind) TextEdit just won't cut it....

I spoke with the folks at the TextMate booth for a bit about the upcoming version. Yea, it's going to be Leopard-only, and we've been discussing why more and more devs are sticking with Leopard for their apps, but there's some pretty cool stuff on the way for TextMate. Beefing up support for version...

I've previously mentioned my text editor of choice is TextMate. I'm the first to admit that I am not a power user of TextMate, since I'm a word slinger not a code monkey. Lots of TextMate's features don't really come into play for me, but even if one discards the many features that help developers t...

Cocoa Blogs has linked a blog post from Gus Mueller, developer of such apps as VoodooPad, that an upcoming FlySketch 2.0 update will be Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard-only. This adds to a growing list of upcoming app releases such as TextMate 2 and Delicious Library 2 which will only play with Apple's next b...

Like me, there are probably a lot of fresh new TextMate users out there in the audience thanks at least in part to MacHeist, so I thought it would be pertinent to point out a few helpful resources Allan Odgaard (TM's developer) maintains at macromates.com. Of course the searchable mailing list and I...

I am a fan of TextMate for many reasons. The biggest reason is the active developer community that surrounds it. Not only does Macromates continue to dream up new features, others are extending the program in a number of very cool ways. TeXMLMate is a very cool XML palette that enables you to do a n...

One of the appeals of MacHeist that a few participating developers cited for their participation is residual sales. Things like upgrade licenses, extra plugins and add-ons can all be big boosts to a 3rd party developer's revenue, and some of MacHeist's participating devs have certainly hit the groun...

We are a thankful bunch around TUAW today, in honor of Thanksgiving here in the states. Since I spend most of my waking hours blogging I thought I would give some praise to the five applications that make blogging a breeze on the Mac. This is not meant to be a 'Top Five blogging tools post,' if you'...

In what would seem, on the surface, to be an odd move for a text editor, Macromates has stated that TextMate 2.0 will almost certainly be Leopard-only. Allan Odgaard gives some good reasons as to why, though. And it's not just because the Halloween icon will look better with Leopard's resolution ind...

We've shown you a Sad Mac O'lantern, regular Mac O'Lanterns, Halloween iTunes picks, and how to make a costume for your iPod, all in preparation for tomorrow's big holiday. Well, it looks like Textmate wants to get in on the Halloween fun. Today a small update was released, and the icon was updated ...

I spend a lot of time in a text editor. Sure, I don't code (much), but I write many, many things. Recently I have converted to the way of TextMate. Why the switch from my once beloved TextWrangler (which was free)? One word: Bundles. TextMate has this really cool feature called Bundles (duh) that al...

Chances are if I am sitting at my Mac I am blogging (perhaps not for TUAW, but for some blog somewhere) and so this list of the top ten supplemental blogging apps for OS X caught my eye. The apps that make the cut are: Quicksilver (a TUAW favorite) Firefox (though Flock gets a mention) Pukka...

There is a new screencast up at the TextMate blog showing off how you can blog right from TextMate. Watch the screencast and I think you'll agree with me that it is pretty darn cool. Now, I don't think I'll be giving up MarsEdit any time soon, but it is nice to know there are options out there. [via...

Text editors are programs that inspire great loyalty amongst Mac users. BBEdit's legions of users attribute everything from being more productive to happier familys to the software's non-suckiness. TextMate is the up and coming text editor that many people are switching to. MacDevCenter recently spo...

Francois Joseph de Kermadec no only has a better name than I do, he is also a much braver man. How else to explain his willingness to pen a review pitting BBEdit vs. Textmate. Furthermore, he does the impossible and says that neither of them wins the battle! Shocking, indeed. However, at the end of ...

BBEdit is the grand daddy of text editors on the Mac, though I prefer TextWrangler myself. However, TextMate, a relative new comer to the scene, is getting a lot of attention from the geekier Mac folks out there. MacSlash has posted a glowing review of the app, which is making me think I need to tak...
