Textmate/Rails Question


#1

I just picked up textmate yesterday and have been playing around with
it. I
see all the cool snippets it has, but I’m not sure how to use them
correctly. In the videos I’ve seen that you can type out the snippet
(only a
few characters) and then it appears. I don’t know how to get that to
happen.
Do I have to download something seperate to do it?

Thanks!
-Matt

press tab.

esc auto completes within the file.

There’s a good manual available under the help menu.
