TextMate Bundles

Version 1.4.5

These bundles will help reduce time spent in building revIgniter web sites considerably. Even if you don't use revIgniter and build your sites from scratch, the bundles serve you too. The revIgniter bundles are compatible with Sublime Text and Atom, though the bundles' commands and file drop actions are not available. There is an Atom package provided by Dr. Peter Brett, so there is no need to convert the bundles by yourself. You can even use the bundles on iOS in Textastic in case you like to code on an iPad. Of course, the specific commands and file drop actions don't work with Textastic either, furthermore there is no code completion in Textastic.

Note: This version works with TextMate 2 and is not meant to be used with previous versions of TextMate.


  • Collapsing Text Blocks (Foldings)
  • Handler Pop-up
  • Code Completion
  • Snippets with Tab Stops and Placeholders (revIgniter and iRev)
