tm_helper

Some useful utilities for Ruby development in TextMate.

Features

  • Formats puts output when running RSpec specs in TextMate using the RSpec TextMate bundle.

    • Namely, it escapes HTML and converts \n characters to +<br/>+.

    • This is useful when using puts to debug code while running specs in TextMate.

  • Supports forcing of logs to the Textmate window.

    • Defining TM_SHOW_LOGS in your TextMate Preferences->Shell Variables will cause all logs issued using the Logger class be to redirected to the TextMate runner window.

    • This is useful when you want to see your application's logs while running an RSpec spec in TextMate.

Installation

Include tm_helper into your Gemfile.

gem 'tm_helper'

Usage

Simply use puts as you would normally. Output will be automatically formatted when running in an RSpec window.

Define TM_SHOW_LOGS in your TextMate Preferences->Shell Variables to cause Logger logs issued by your application be to redirected to the TextMate runner window.

Advanced Usage

To test whether your code is running in TextMate, use the running_in_textmate? function:

if TmHelper.running_in_textmate? 
  puts "I am running in TextMate."
end

To test whether your spec is being executed using the RSpec TextMate bundle, use the running_rspec_bundle? function:

if TmHelper.running_rspec_bundle? 
  puts "I am running in TextMate with the RSpec TextMate bundle loaded."
end
