Developing Ruby in TextMate

I recently made the switch from IntelliJ to TextMate. So far I'm happy despite losing some features such as local history and Subversion integration. I haven't really found anything in TextMate that I couldn't do in IntelliJ, but I find I'm happier in TextMate so far. I think fighting with IntelliJ to work with Ruby wore on me. I also found IntelliJ was slightly annoyingly slow.

If you haven't already, I suggest giving TextMate a chance.


  1. TextMate definitely has integrated subversion. Check out Automation > Command > Subversion.

  2. I'll admit, I haven't looked through the integration at all..

    The type of integration Obie was looking for is similar to the color coding that IntelliJ does in the file tree.
