I get disappointed when people don’t make an effort to learn their tool set. I am guilty of this as I used to be a hard core emacs user, but when I moved from GNU\Linux to Mac OSX, I migrated to Textmate and stopped programming full time. I never took the time to learn the new editor. Having paired a lot lately with our interns I feel I am doing them a dis-service by not giving them a full arsenal of tricks in their primary weapon “the editor”. Mountain West Ruby Conference inspired me to do something about it, well actually the RV Trip there and back.
So, I am going to try and do a Textmate Tip/Trick of the week (or maybe day). Many of these items will be new to me as well, so if I mess it up or miss something cool, please let me know. If you find them valuable also let me know. Here is the first installation.
