What I want from a fork from TextMate 2

TextMate 2 was released today as opensource. This is what I want from a fork:

  • A programming language so I can configure the editor (E.g. V8/JavaScript, ECL/Common Lisp).
  • Buffers, (split my window into slices and put tabs in each subwindow).
  • Implement the interface in ObjC and everything else in a high level programming language.
  • A package system with a online companion site.
  • A online command line interface where I can call commands.

Essencially what I want is emacs but well done and integrated with OS X


Found any forks that fit the bill?

Use sublime text 2 :)

Yup. That’s what I’m doing!
