Redcar supports Snippets and Syntax definitions from Textmate bundles, and Textmate Themes.

Installing a new Bundle

  1. Copy the tmbundle directory to the directory: ~/.redcar/Bundles. (You may have to create it.) So you will have a directory like: ~/.redcar/Bundles/coffee-script.tmbundle

  2. Delete the file ~/.redcar/cache/textmate_bundles.cache.[1]

  3. Restart Redcar and it will rebuild the textmate cache file, which will take a few seconds.
  4. Your bundle should now be available.

Installing a new Theme

  1. Copy the .tmtheme file to the directory: ~/.redcar/Themes. (You may have to create it.)
  2. Delete the file ~/.redcar/cache/textmate_bundles.cache.[1]
  3. Restart Redcar and it will rebuild the textmate cache file, which will take a few seconds.
  4. Your theme should now be available.
