Textmate tips and shortcuts

Wow, 111111 messages in rails-talk. (111112 now)

I've recently purchased my first mac, and of course textmate. I think
I'm about to switch to textmate full time from Netbeans.

I'm finding I'm behind the 8 ball with keyboard shortcuts and general
knowledge of the ide tho. Does anyone know of any good tutorials on
using textmate for rails dev, with rspec and guthub? I have the
rspec bundle installed, and discovered the "des"-tab combo to fill out
the describe block skeleton, that's nice.

Keen to hear about your favourite tips, tut's, or screencasts...

Cheers,

Tim.

I think peepcode has a screencast out on textmate shortcuts.

http://peepcode.com/products/textmate-for-rails-2 is worth looking at
- it's got a lot of general tips as well as the specifics for the
Rails2 bundle (which you can pick up on Github if you don't have it
already).

http://blog.macromates.com/2007/getting-into-textmate/ will point you
at some other general resources.

http://afreshcup.com/?tag=textmate will get you pointers to some other
random TextMate stuff I've thought worth bookmarking along the way.

Thanks Ryan and Mike. It looks like the peepcode screencast might be
my second purchase from Mr Topfunky.

I found the Rails bundle has a built in 'walkthough' to create a blog
app. Seems to be a good way to pick up a few shortcuts quickly, but
most of the view (erb) one's aren't working for me though..

Something else you might do (if you haven't already) is just browse
through the bundles and see what menu options are available. Most (if
not all) have keyboard shortcuts. That's how I discovered a number of
the one's I use.

Peace,
