This package contains some Gedit improvements to make it more similar to TextMate. The package contain code snippets, plugins, and an automatic registration of rails-related files.

Now Todo-List plugin is a part of GMATE and does not depend of mozilla / gtkmozembed todo plugin now depends of python-webkitgtk package, this package was introduced on Ubuntu 8.10, and may or not disponible in other distros, if not you will need to downlolad and install manually. The Python Webkit Home is located on

To install on a debian/ubuntu based distro just run in a terminal:

I have changed the SnapOpen plugin by a new one called Gedit Open Files, it do the same work with the same shortcut, but have more options. this plugin requires pyinotify.

$ sudo apt-get install python-pyinotify

Code snippets

I need help to create a good snippet base, for now current snippets I got from some place, and most are outdated.

in addition if your syntax not works properly just with install process you can edit your /etc/mime.types file and add following lines next to other “text/x-????” entries:

text/x-ruby-source                              rhtml html.erb erb
text/x-eruby                                    rjs
text/x-yaml                                     yml

... Same for other mime types and extensions
