TextMate plugin to instant filter your project files

Hey all,

Just wanted to announce a TextMate plugin that I altered on github for easier file navigation.

When you open a folder in TextMate, a drawer with a navigator appears. The MissingDrawer plugin (https://github.com/jezdez/textmate-missingdrawer) promotes the drawer into a dedicated view that sits next to the text editor. You can show/hide the sidebar, and switch the sidebar's location also. Other commands are available in View > Project Drawer, and you can go to TextMate's preferences to customize colors and the Terminal button.

I wanted to be able to filter the files in my project based on name, similar to what is available in Xcode, for those of you who do Mac or iOS development. So I forked the project (https://github.com/legion80/textmate-missingdrawer-filter) and added a search widget at the bottom. Type in the search field, and it will immediately filter the list. You can jump to the search widget directly by using the ⌥⌘j shortcut (which is the same shortcut in Xcode 4).

To get the plugin, go to the project URL (https://github.com/legion80/textmate-missingdrawer-filter), and click on Downloads. Look for MissingDrawer-filter-0.4.0-0.1a.tmplugin.zip. Unzip the plugin, and double-click it. That should automatically install it.

You will only see the navigator if you are in a project, or opened a folder in TextMate.

I was only able to test this on OS X Lion, so let me know if you see any issues in Snow Leopard.

Enjoy, and be sure to file bugs in the github issues queue (https://github.com/legion80/textmate-missingdrawer-filter/issues)


New TextMate plugin with Xdebug support!

Hey all,

After adding the filter to the MissingDrawer plugin, I next looked for a way to get rid of Eclipse and integrate MacGDBp into the sidebar. So I took the MissingDrawer-filter code and extended it to make a new plugin called TextMateDBGp.

It allows you to use TextMate bookmarks to specify breakpoints, listen for incoming Xdebug connections, and step through your code. You can look through the call stack and examine variable values.

You can get the latest version of the plugin here: https://github.com/downloads/legion80/TextMateDBGp/TextMateDBGp.tmplugin...

Unzip the plugin, and double-click it to install it.

Hope some of you give it a try, and let me know what you think!
