last discussion for the sublime chrome devtools https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=5387428

Are there any tools for integration between vim and chrome dev tools?

I know some are salivating over this but it's still far behind the DevTools built into Chrome. For example, how do you inspect the DOM? How you do you look at generated runtime elements? How do you inspect cascaded styles? Why use two tools when the other is just a proxy to a subset of the functionality built into Chrome's dev tools?

Hmm, we'll certainly keep our eyes out for that and cover it.

"Given up on TextMate."

I've been using the open source TextMate. I have to say, it's one of the best free editors out there.

That was just 7 months ago though http://thechangelog.com/textmate-2-now-on-github/

Folks started to give up on updates to TextMate years ago. I'm certainly glad that it's open now and being pushed forward, but that was only after lying stagnant for too long -- meanwhile Sublime Text propped up and pushed forward.

And it's cross-platform, too.

Very good point.

I tried it for a week, nothing over ST2 as far as I was concerned. What do you like about it?

I've tried both ST and TM. TM is enough editor for me. I can do some pretty advanced things with it (like sending selected text to an external script) and it now has ongoing development and community support.

If you program in a mac, you might want to learn about 'Services', which is a way to do whatever you want with selected text in nearly any osx app.

I always wondered what that was, but hadn't got around to checking it out.

But ST2 isn't free.

Neither is TextMate.

Oops. Thanks.

It's also not Mac only though. (Yeah, yeah, I'm a heretic.)

It's not that you're a heretic (I do my work using ST2 on Ubuntu), it's just that stcredzero said TM was "one of the best free editors out there." So comparing it to a non-free editor is irrelevant to that comment.

If you said Chrysler was one of the best American car companies, and I said "They've got nothing on Toyota", then that would be a silly thing for me to say.

Ah, I understand, I took "free" in the other context when I read it originally.

fwiw I still enjoy using textmate. Also I guess part of the success of ST2 is due to support of textmate bundles

and the cross platform ability. I constantly flip between Mac, Linux, and windows.

It's the python plugins and the multiple carets... mostly.

TextMate has an elegant implementation of multiple carets: http://blog.macromates.com/2011/multiple-carets/

nice; VS too (well, not sure if elegant) using an extension: http://www.hanselman.com/blog/SimultaneousEditingForVisualSt...

Dang... what can't you do with Sublime Text? I've been using it for 9 months now and the plugins keep getting better.

it wont make me faster but i'll feel better doing it
