Pygments TextMate Bundle

Following my last post, a few people asked me to create a Pygments TextMate bundle. Ask and ye shall receive (on GitHub).

The Pygments menu


Install Pygments following these instructions.


First method:

sudo mkdir -p /Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
cd /Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
git clone git:// "Pygments.tmbundle"

If TextMate is running while you perform the update, execute the following:

osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

This is equivalent to selecting Bundles -> Bundle Editor -> Reload Bundles from within TextMate.

Second method: Download this file, unzip it, and double click on Pygments.tmbundle.

By the way, add the following to your stylesheet if you’d like to see a scrollbar when displaying very long lines of code. This adds a nice border as well:

.highlight { border: 1px solid silver; padding-left: 5px; margin-bottom: 0.5em; overflow-x:auto; }
