Polluting the internet since 2004
Ok, sorry, I can’t let all the BBEdit users think that they’ve discovered something new
In case you’ve noticed the amazement lately on blogs and twitter where BBEdit users have discovered a way to open a curl’d url in BBEdit to view its source you may be wondering “how do I do this in TextMate”?
Well, its a little more code, but its also a little more powerful.
So, add this as a command in your bundle and tell it to open a new document when its done. Assign it to a keyboard command (if you haven’t already assigned other items to every other keyboard combination under the sun like I have). From here you can simply highlight a URL in a document, trigger the command, and get the source of the url in a new document.
On top of that, if the url contains credentials a-la “
user:password@http://foo.com” it’ll use the “
user:password” portion to authenticate you against simple Apache 401 authentication.
I’ve been thinking that it would be nice to have this also check the clipboard if there’s nothing selected. But I haven’t gotten around to trying that yet.
This and a few more helpful commands can be found in my General TextMate Bundle on Github (also available through GetBundles).
