Text Editor Actions for Espresso

This version of TEA for Espresso is officially deprecated as of Espresso 2.0. If you are interested in leveraging TEA, please email MacRabbit for more information.

Text Editor Actions (TEA) for Espresso is an Espresso plugin that provides numerous bundled actions and an infrastructure for easily creating more, whether you are a Sugar developer or not.

TEA has been bundled with Espresso since version 1.0, so you do not need to download it (unless you want to test bleeding edge improvements).

For more info about TEA (including documentation) see the TEA website:

Building from source

Since you're here, odds are you want to mess around with TEA's source code. To compile TEA first clone it from GitHub (if you don't have Git installed, download it instead):

git clone git://

In order to compile, TEA for Espresso needs to know where your Espresso installation lives. By default it will look in your /Applications folder, but if you have Espresso installed somewhere else, you can create a symbolic link to it that the compiler will follow like this:

ln -s /path/to/ /Applications/

To compile, just open the Xcode project and hit the build button!

To override the bundled version of TEA in Espresso, make sure to increment the CFBundleVersion in Info.plist before compiling TEA.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
