TextMate-style Commenting in BBEdit
Since July, I’ve been moving from my beloved-but-abandoned TextMate to BBEdit. It’s good. I like BBEdit. I like the feel, I like knowing that bugs will be fixed and new OS X APIs will be implemented…
But I miss the way TextMate comments out the current line when there’s no selection. Seems trivial, but I use it all the time. Kerri wrote a script to do this, but it wouldn’t block comment a selection, so I needed to remember two separate keystrokes: one when there was a selection and one when there wasn’t.
Instead, I changed the original script to act as a Menu Script and attached it to the “Text > Un/Comment Selection” menu item. If there’s a selection, it passes control back to BBEdit. If there’s not, it works its magic.1
