Ack.tmbundle: a faster "Find in Project" for TextMate
Posted by trevor Tue, 03 Jun 2008 19:19:39 GMT
Recently one of my ENTP colleagues switched me on to ack as an excellent replacement for find+grep. Being a dyed in the wool TextMate user, the first thing that popped into my head was “I need an ‘Ack in Project’ TextMate plugin”.
Unfortunately the only advertised plugin I could find was 404’ing on me. Did I do the simple thing and notify the author about the dead link? Nope. I wrote my own plugin instead.
In hindsight I have to ask… what on earth was I thinking?
Whatever. I wrote the plugin and (if I do say so myself) it’s pretty damn good.
Here’s some installation instructions for getting it from my github repository:
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles git clone git://github.com/protocool/ack-tmbundle.git Ack.tmbundle
I’ve also thrown together a little (silent and slightly crappy) screencast showing it in action.
