Building

Setup

To build TextMate, you need the following:

All this can be installed using either Homebrew or MacPorts:

# Homebrew
brew install boost capnp google-sparsehash multimarkdown ninja ragel

MacPorts

sudo port install boost capnproto multimarkdown ninja ragel sparsehash

After installing dependencies, make sure you have a full checkout (including submodules) and then run

./configure
followed by
ninja
, for example:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/textmate/textmate.git
cd textmate
./configure && ninja TextMate/run

The

./configure
script simply checks that all dependencies can be found, and then calls
bin/rave
to bootstrap a
build.ninja
file with default config set to
release
and default target set to
TextMate
.

Building from within TextMate

You should install the Ninja bundle which can be installed via PreferencesBundles.

After this you can press ⌘B to build from within TextMate. In case you haven't already you also need to set up the

PATH
variable either in PreferencesVariables or
~/.tm_properties
so it can find
ninja
and related tools; an example could be
$PATH:/usr/local/bin
.

The default target (set in

.tm_properties
) is
TextMate/run
. This will relaunch TextMate but when called from within TextMate, a dialog will appear before the current instance is killed. As there is full session restore, it is safe to relaunch even with unsaved changes.

If the current file is a test file then the target to build is changed to build the library to which the test belongs (this is done by setting

TM_NINJA_TARGET
in the
.tm_properties
file found in the root of the source tree).

Similarly, if the current file belongs to an application target (other than

TextMate.app
) then
TM_NINJA_TARGET
is set to build and run this application.

Build Targets

For the

TextMate.app
application there are two symbolic build targets:
ninja TextMate      # Build and sign TextMate
ninja TextMate/run  # Build, sign, and (re)launch TextMate

To clean everything run:

ninja -t clean

Or simply delete

~/build/TextMate
.
