Empower Textmate for Ruby

I’ve been programming a bit in in ruby from Textmate and although the editor is pretty sharp, I thought there were two missing features.

  • Start rspec tests
  • Start the debugger from Textmate (not often useful but I still do it from time to time… maybe it’s my old Java mindset…)

Behold! I found two plugins filling the description! (and do more on the sides)

  • Rubyamp allows me to start the debbuger from Textmate and does a lot more.
  • The rspec bundle allows you to start rspec tests from Textmate

As a bonus I also found TmCodeBrowser which allows you to see all your classes/methods and jump to them.

Power up Textmate with plugins!

I’ll try to update this page if I find other useful plugins.
