The Missing Text Editor for Mac. How true?
A lot has been said about TextMate on Mac OSX. I just have to try it my self.
On my first glance about TextMate’s UI (User Interface), it really look ordinary to me. It even looks like TextEdit except with line code on the left.
So it tried using it on my daily web development task and found out it has more to it. One of them is converting non-ASCII characters in a few clicks and ticks on your input devices. Just highlight your line of code and press shift + cmd 7 it select the filter you want to do and it converts non-ASCII characters into html character entities.
So there is more in to TextMate that I haven’t explored so I bought this book “Textmate: Power Editing for the Mac (Pragmatic Programmers)” to learn more about TextMate’s hidden power on editing.
So when I find my self master of this tool then I will post another story on how my journey went with TextMate.
Feel free to drop me a line of comment below. Cheers!
