Ack Textmate Bundle.
Version 0.1

Type command-shift-a to ack your project in TextMate… ’nuff said.

You can learn more about ack at http://petdance.com/ack/.

This fork adds file-type filtering, allowing you to (say) search only within .js files.


  • Run this:
cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
git clone git://github.com/kemayo/ack-tmbundle.git Ack.tmbundle


You can file tickets for any bugs using LightHouse.


The ack-standalone.sh script from http://petdance.com/ack/ is included in this bundle. You can use a different version of ack by setting the TM_ACK environment variable to point to your version.

This bundle has only been tested against this particular version of ack-standalone.

Per-project .ackrc

Ack normally honors the settings in your $HOME/.ackrc file. Additionally, any .ackrc file in your project directory (TM_PROJECT_DIRECTORY) will also be read.

You can switch-off loading of any .ackrc files in the ‘Advanced options’ drawer.


The code is based on GrepInProject++ which was itself based on other’s code as below:
