Tumblr Themes TextMate Bundle 2.2

What is this?

This is is a tmbundle for the Mac text editor TextMate. It contains snippets for every Block and Variable from the Tumblr custom themes docs as of July 2011. There are a lot of snippets in this bundle, about a megabyte's worth (which is pretty fucking big for a TextMate bundle). They have been organized in a manner that is similar to the theme docs, but some adjustments have been made to make the snippets easy accessible in the contextual menu.
