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 Friedrich made an overview of the keyboard shortcuts: http://feldpost.com/lighthaus/textmate_rails.pdf (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.
