Way back in 2006 – after the excitement of the Midterm Elections and before the launch of the Wii – Hetima wrote MissingDrawer, a plugin for the oft-mentioned TextMate that took the standard-issue OS X drawer used by TextMate project file lists and turned it into an Xcode-like pane embed...

I love playing with TextMate themes. I tend to get bored easily, and besides a proclivity for dark backgrounds that impair readability, I'm always up for variety. That's why I'm pleased to see TM Themes, developed by Garrett Bjerkhoel, hit the TextMate theme scene. The site is starting out with a sm...

The new .Mac Web Galleries are great, but they unfortunately can only be built by iPhoto '08 and integrated into iWeb pages. Thanks to this RapidWeaver forum post from Günter, however, RW users have a trick for embedding those slick scrolling .Mac Web Gallery thumbnails into their pages. The tr...

Now the author of that tome, James Edward Gray II, offers a preview of the kind of stuff you'll find in his book in an article over at MacDevCenter.

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.

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.

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.
