Code Beautifier Textmate Bundle

Warning: I no longer use Textmate and so this is effectively abandonware

Textmate's indent functionality does a reasonable job of formatting your code BUT there is a great deal of room for improvement.

Code Beautifier only supports Ruby at present but does improve upon Textmate's indent functionality, in particular it is better at indenting multiline statements and cleans up white space.


If you have git installed your machine then run this:

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
git clone git:// Code\ Beautifier.tmbundle

Otherwise download the zip or tarball and unpack it in ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles.

Then select 'Bundles > Bundle Editor > Reload Bundles' from Textmate's menus


  • Does recognize strings with custom delimiters
  • Does not handle multiline blocks within implied brackets
  • Does not indent continuing line statements within brackets correctly


This was based on the ruby beautifier script by Paul Lutus and Beautiful Ruby in Textmate by Tim Burks
