MacRuby TextMate bundle


To install via Git:

cd ~/"Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles/"
git clone git:// "MacRuby.tmbundle"
osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

Source can be viewed or forked via GitHub:

MacRuby & Ruby 1.9 support

The default Ruby.tmbundle's Run and Run Rake Task commands (and all others) are executed through the default Ruby 1.8 interpreter. Instead, we want MacRuby files to be run through macruby instead.

This bundle also attempts to upgrade all of TextMate's Support/lib/*.rb files and many of the Ruby.tmbundle's Commands to work with MacRuby. This means:

  • using macruby instead of ruby as $TM_RUBY
  • cleaning up Support/lib code to be ruby1.9 compliant (TextMate's Support folder has been copied into bundle as SharedSupport folder)
  • fixing plist.bundle for ruby1.9

Currently Cmd+R (Run) and Ctrl+Shift+R (Run Rake Task) have been attempted, but both are failing.
