Latest commit

Normally a selection done via search or double-click will be unanchored, so that the first use of shift-left/right will always extend the selection, as opposed to a selection done with keyboard, where shift-left/right moves the ending of the selection.

Building

Bootstrap

To bootstrap the build you need to run ./configure (in the root of the source tree). You can set a few (environment) variables read by this script that change the generated build file:

  • builddir — location of built files. Defaults to ~/build/TextMate.
  • identity — for Apple’s codesign. Defaults to ad-hoc signing, which does not use an identity at all.
  • boostdir — location of boost includes. By default it will search various locations including MacPorts and Homebrew.
  • sparsedir — location of sparsehash includes. By default it will search various locations including MacPorts and Homebrew.

In the simplest case (assuming Homebrew is installed) you would run:

brew install ragel boost multimarkdown hg ninja capnp google-sparsehash libressl
git clone --recursive https://github.com/textmate/textmate.git
cd textmate
./configure && ninja

If you're using MacPorts then instead run this line to install dependencies:

sudo port install ninja ragel boost multimarkdown mercurial sparsehash libressl

Unless you’re using Homebrew then Cap’n Proto must be manually installed. Feel free to submit a PR to update configure.

If port fails with a build error then likely you need to agree (system-wide) to Apple’s Xcode license:

sudo xcodebuild -license

Prerequisites

Building TextMate has the following dependencies:

In practice hg (mercurial) is only required for the SCM library’s tests so you can skip this dependency if you don’t mind a failing test.

If you want to avoid the libressl linker warnings about being built for different deployment target then run brew edit libressl and make the following change:

-    system "./configure", *args
+    system "env", "LDFLAGS=-mmacosx-version-min=10.8", "CFLAGS=-mmacosx-version-min=10.8", "./configure", *args

Afterward you must rebuild using: brew reinstall --build-from-source libressl

Building from within TextMate

You should install the Ninja bundle which can be installed via PreferencesBundles.

After this you can press ⌘B to build from within TextMate. In case you haven't already you also need to set up the PATH variable either in PreferencesVariables or ~/.tm_properties so it can find ninja and related tools; an example could be $PATH:/opt/local/bin.

The default target is TextMate/run. This will relaunch TextMate but when called from within TextMate, a dialog will appear before the current instance is killed. As there is full session restore, it is safe to relaunch even with unsaved changes.

If the current file is a test file then the target to build is changed to build the library to which the test belongs (this is done by setting TM_NINJA_TARGET in the .tm_properties file found in the root of the source tree).

Similarly, if the current file belongs to an application target (other than TextMate.app) then TM_NINJA_TARGET is set to build and run this application.

Build Targets

For the TextMate.app application there are two symbolic build targets:

ninja TextMate      # Build and sign TextMate
ninja TextMate/run  # Build, sign, and (re)launch TextMate

To clean everything run:

ninja -t clean
