I'm very excited to announce that a book I've written has been published! The book is called TextMate How-to and is published by Packt Publishing.

TextMate How-To Book Cover

At just a little over 70 pages, it's a short read geared toward web developers and designers who want to learn about the best features of TextMate 1.5 without diving too deep into the manual. It covers the following topics:

  • Configuring TextMate, including installing themes
  • Navigating text and files quickly and easily
  • Converting text using the best and most useful methods
  • Searching using various methods whether in one or multiple files
  • Creating and utilizing projects
  • Installing bundles quickly and easily
  • Overview of some of the more useful bundles
  • Utilizing shell commands and variables
  • Recording and using macros to speed up your editing

This book is not meant to be a comprehensive source (see TextMate: Power Editing for the Mac), but I hope it'll be a go-to resource for those who wish to learn the best practices of TextMate quickly.

If you have a chance to read it, let me know what you think in the comments, and feel free to submit a review.
