CFTextMate new home

CFTextMate has a new temp home at

How come?

I am a massive TextMate fan on the Mac and and one of its strengths is in its extensibility and bundles. CFTextMate has always been a great add-on for working with CFML files but fell short when editing the new scripted components. Luckily Russ Johnson had figured out how to edit the main bundle and get some basic highlighting working. From here I wanted to take it a step further and update the bundle which is when I started down this path.

So where am I:

  1. Due to domain rights and some limbo weirdness I don't have access to cftextmate.(org|com) so cannot tell people about these updates there.
  2. I don't think I have been approved yet on the Google Groups so I cannot post there.
  3. I did speak to Rob Rohan who was last pushing out updates and I have forked his code and already made the initial adjustments that I wanted to do at
  4. I have created a site at which I am hoping Google will pick up soon.
  5. I have set up a Twitter account at @cftextmate for updates
  6. I have created a Uservoice account at for suggestions (please go there and start adding bits)

The bundles have been updated so with some changes so you can download and check them out here.

So what now?

Though I am going to do my best to update the bundles this is still my first foray in to this kind of development so if anyone else wants to actively help the grab the code from Github, give it go, and send me a PULL request!. I am also looking at a complete re-rewrite from the ground up so I can split out CFML tags and CFML script for better management. Though at the moment I don't know whether that is the right direction to go? Generally there is still a lot of work to be done and depending on which route the project goes down will depend when the next update is out. For now at least it has a home and a way for the community to follow the project.
