Comment on "TextMate for Projects with Both HTML and Code"

Is that the default code-coloring or your personal preference

It's called Blackboard. Not the default, but one of a number of built-in themes. I bounce between a few depending on my mood, but this is one of my favorites.

If you drag a .h file to IB, does it treat it like a .h file from XCode?


Can you reference resources (NIBs, graphics) from TextMate and launch/view them in the editor?

If you double-click a NIB package it opens in IB. If you unfold the package, you can look at the actual contained files as text versions of key-value pairs. If you double-click a graphics file, it opens it via Launch Services.

When you run code, do you get a console/output window?

I use the Console app. I believe this is the only way but I could be wrong.

What about the debugger? Not that I use it much.

As far as I can tell, you need to use Xcode for that. I'm actually not sure how such a thing would work in TextMate since it's a text editor.

Can you terminate hung executables from within TextMate?

Not that I know of. Just force quit.

TextMate is not intended to be a complete replacement for Xcode. That would be a huge mess. It's a replacement (or complement) for the Xcode editor. It has a few missing features relative to Xcode, but also some tremendous benefits.
