To install via Git:

Optionally set the TM_ANT variable to point to your installation of Ant (ie /usr/local/bin/ant) in TextMate, preferences, advanced tab, shell variables.
As Ant files are XML TextMate won't automatically distinguish them, to achieve this you can suffix your files with
ant.xml or include
<!--ant--> on the first line.
Adding extra scopes to commands (Build and Build Target for example) Scope Selector field will allow access to them from files other than ant.xml.

ant.dtdby running a
<target>with the following contents:
<antstructure output="ant.dtd" />.
TM_ANT_MANUAL_PATHIf you have installed your own version of Ant, you can set this variable to the location of its manual. For example if you installed it via MacPorts then set it to
/opt/local/share/java/apache-ant/docs/manual. The default is to use the manual included with Apple’s developer tools with the online version as a fallback.
