Enrich your RDoc authoring experience.

branch: master


Enrich your RDoc authoring experience. Installing this TextMate bundle will teach textmate how to properly display RDoc in the preview. For example, if you have a README.rdoc you can press <Control> + <Option> + <CMD> + <p> to preview the html output.


git clone git:// ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles/RDoc.tmbundle

You will want to run the following line to reload the bundles if TextMate was open during the install…

osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

Optional Customization of your Ruby.tmbundle

Take things one step further by launching your app's RDocs from any .rb file: The following will setup TextMate to regenerate the rdocs and open them in Safari when you press Ctrl+Opt+CMD+p from any .rb file.

  • Edit the bundles within TextMate Ctrl+Opt+CMD+b

  • Choose the “Run” command from the “Ruby” bundle and click the copy button (double plus sign)

  • Type “Preview” to rename what is currently called “Run copy”

  • Replace the context with the following in the text area on the right labeled: Command(s)

    #!/bin/bash --posix 
    rake rdoc
    osascript -e "tell application \"Safari\" to open location \"file:///$TM_PROJECT_DIRECTORY/rdoc/index.html\""
  • Click on the Action Key Equivalent setting section and set as Ctrl+Opt+CMD+p

  • Close the bundle editor and choose Bundles > Bundle Editor > Reload Bundles

  • Enjoy faster access to your RDocs



Currently, this RDoc TextMate bundle only provides a method of previewing. Maybe I'll get around to syntax highlighting, or maybe you will… Contact me and I'll be happy to incorporate your changes.
