    Exploring Textmate

    Hi,

    Iím currently using Dreamwaver to create my HTML and CSS sites and I like it but I would like to try an editor like Coda or Textmate. I have downloaded both and Iím currently trying to understand the differences between both but I think I will go with Textmate because of the price, one thing I have noticed though is that Textmate doesnít have code hinting and I was wondering if it was possible to install a plug-in (bundle) to add code hinting for languages like HTMl, CSS, Javascript, PHP etc.

    Can someone tell me if itís possible to add code hinting in Textmate? I really need this functionality since Iím not an expert and I need that extra help.

    Can someone explain how bundles work? Are they some sort of plug-ins?

    Thanks a lot!
    Thank you very much!!!

    I always just Google this sort of stuff, since there's little doubt it's been talked about online. This was the first link I found:

    Another option you might want to consider is Netbeans

    It is

    1) open source and free

    2) has code hinting, auto-complete for both core and user defined classes

    and many other features.

    Oops, sorry. Just from reading around and a few tests, there doesn seem to be some kind of code completion in TM. For example, in an HTML doc, if you type hr and then click the Esc key (top left corner) it completes it as href. Likewise, type cl and hit Esc, it autocompletes class.
