One last thing..

More software-related posts coming eventually. Also, wtf with the inability to specify a category? :p

TextMate & Markdown

TextMate & Markdown

I've been messing around with TextMate lately, trying it out for several unrelated tasks that seem to always require a little bit more than your basic text editor. I had not tried the blogging bundle before, but figured it was worth a try.

Markdown support has always been pretty crucial for me, as well as the ability to construct new posts with a minimal amount of effort (I hate mouseclicks!). So far so good. The only remaining issue is dealing with the strange default template that TextMate seems to use when constructing the headers with markdown, but that seems to be fixed by using nothing but the following at the top of the entry:

Title: __insert title here_
Format: markdown

Not too bad. Now if I could only figure out how to add keywords, and set comments to be turned off by default, that would be fine. Cheers. --ivan
