Oh yeah, one big negative for me is that TextMate doesn’t support
editing remote files (like via s/ftp). I used NetDrive on Windows. I
suspect it’s possible with NFS, but I’ve never used that.
No, and I really missed that to begin with (one of my favourite features
in jEdit, for sure), but its Subversion integration is really good - not
the same thing, but it is possible to set up your projects in such a way
that it almost /feels/ the same… I have it working well here, using
ssh tunnelling with a dedicated user on the repos box - use public key
authentication, and restrict the user on the repos server so it is only
allowed to run the svnserve command, and you’re good to go. Takes a bit
of setting up, but it’s well worth the effort.
It also means you have two copies of your project - never a bad idea,
when disks are prone to badness…
I can see no reason why it shouldn’t work over NFS, if you are using a
reasonably up to date version to avoid file locking wobbliness. Or even
SMB, if that’s your weakness.
Oh yeah, and you have to buy it, coz I had a patch
committed to the code base!. Aw, c’mon, it’s a big thing for
But apart from that, it is simply the best editor I have had the joy to
discover for several years.
