I was inspired by Venkat Subramaniam to make this switch in 2014. Dr. Venkant is using Textmate during his conference live coding for years.
Additional argument for switching is the fact that Textmate 2 is open sourced.
Here is the list of articles which I highly recommend for Textmate newcomers:
- TextMate 2 Basics it’s basic tips for using TextMate
- More TextMate 2 Basics additional usage tips
- My TextMate 2 Setup shows how to tweak TextMate properties per user or per project
- Tweaking TextMate Groovy Bundle and Tweaking TextMate Ruby Bundle Run Command it’s famous Dr. Venkat TextMate setting for showing program run results as tooltips (highly recommended settings). Also, you can see how to configure these setting in this screencast Running in TextMate
- TextMate Manual
