Well, this morning, i discovered one more reason why I’ll quietly wish that I could do all of my development, not just the stuff i do at home on the side, on my mac. I was catching up on Thomas Furch’s blog, and noticed that he made a post about a bundle for textmate that gave it support for prototype AND scriptaculous. It even does inline wiki searches, so you can pull up docs on the functions you want to use from script.aculo.us, using Ctrl+Shift+H. hot.
I’ve already admitted, at least twice, that one of the primary reasons for switching to mac was textmate for web development. Obvoiusly, I’m a happy camper all the way around with my mac experience but its things like this that make me breathe a sigh of relief. Why arent PC application developers doing anything to make my life easier? Why do I spend all day fighting with Visual Studio 2003? Why do I wait for acrobat to crash my browser? Because I’m used to it. Maybe my mac experience isn’t that great, it’s just better than my crappy pc interactions.
I’m gonna shut myself off before i turn into another mac fanboy. But definately check out the budle, and textmate if you somehow havent yet. Features abound in the screenshot below!
