I’m loving coding in TextMate - it makes ruby much more fun. And python, too.
It integrates really well with heaps of other tools, including my diffing app of choice (Changes.app), and my preferred DVCS (Mercurial).
It even has its own Commit pane that appears when you choose to commit. There is one problem with it, however. Invariably I have made a change to a file and can’t remember exactly what it was. You can’t view the changes using the Mercurial bundle and Changes, and leave that window open while you commit. So, I end up having a terminal window open that I type
hg chdiff into.
Instead, we should be able to quickly see the changes made to the working copy. Perhaps using a button like below:
Of course, that’s just a mockup (although it is done in IB) - the button is not connected up to anything. I have no idea how to reverse engineer the Commit.app to do this. But it would be cool.
Update: It appears all you have to do is tell the CommitWindow.app tool that you want to use
--diff-cmd "hg,diff", and it is all done.
