Possible to implement Textmate key shortcuts in RadRails?


#1

The Rails demo videos is a great showoff on how productive Textmate
editor
is. The 15 minute build-a-blog example should be twice as long if there
had
been no keyboard shortcuts in Textmate.

Unfortunately, I use windows and thus RadRails. Does anyone know how to
implement the same keyboard shortcut into RadRails?

Sebastian F. made an overview of the keyboard shortcuts:

(via blog.inquirylabs.com/2006/03/10/rails-cheat-sheat-for-textmate/ )

If somebody had the time and knows RadRails/Eclipse better than I do,
I’m
sure that all RadRails users would benefit from the productivity gains.

doesn’t radrails do snippets by now? if for some reason it still doesnt,
you could check out rails.el fmr emacs.basically theres a lot of 2 char
shortcuts that you type then they expand and move the insertion point to
the right place. i havent used textmate but it seems similar to what ive
seen in the screencast.

don’t be discouraged to delve into the land of emacs - for the first
5-years the only keystroke i knew was ctrl-x-ctrl-s (save). mainly i use
it beacuse nobody else gets tab-indent right. about 50% of editors even
have some kind of ‘emacs-style’ indent-mode in the prefs, but it isnt!

heres a nice build of emacs if youre on windows:

i really have a sneak suspicion radrails has snippet support though. you
might want to ask in their freenode IRC channel… #radrails
