tm_helper

Some useful utilities for Ruby development in TextMate.

Features

  • Formats output when running RSpec specs in TextMate using the RSpec TextMate bundle via the method printout

    • Namely, it escapes HTML and converts \n characters to +<br/>+.

    • This is useful when using print statements to debug code while running specs in TextMate.

  • Supports forcing of logs to the Textmate window.

    • Defining TM_SHOW_LOGS in your environment will cause all logs issued using the Logger class be to redirected to the TextMate runner window.

    • This is useful when you want to see your application's logs while running an RSpec spec in TextMate.

Installation

Include tm_helper into your Gemfile.

gem 'tm_helper'

Usage

Use printout as you would normally use puts. Output will be automatically formatted when running in an RSpec window.

If using spork with –drb, define TM_HELPER=true and TM_RSPEC=true in the shell before running spork.

eg.

$ TM_HELPER=true TM_RSPEC=true spork

Optionally, define TM_SHOW_LOGS to cause Logger logs issued by your application be to redirected to the TextMate runner window.

NOTES

This gem is an extension of the original gem I developed while I was working at Capital Thought in 2010: github.com/capitalthought/tm_helper. It is open source, and licensed under the origin gem's license.
