Semi-on topic -- textmate question

Apologies in advance.

I have been using textmate and am getting to like it more and more.
The feature that is turning my crank and frothing my coffee right now
is “snippets”. Wow! Is this ever cool! And if you aren’t using
Textmate, give it a try.

Anyhow, my snippets are saving me so much time and so utterly
wonderful that like other things in my life that are in that category
(girlfriend, my hands etc) I would not like to lose them.

Does anyone here know how to back up snippets?


Hi Bruce,

Does anyone here know how to back up snippets?

Back up your ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate directory. Though
I personally suggest you back up your whole home directory.

And next time you have a TextMate question: it has it’s own mailing
list. See



Thanks for the answer and your tolerance plus the info about the
textmate mailing list.
