Zend Framework TextMate Bundle

Ryan, from Ybits blog, launched last month a Zend Framework TextMate Bundle, just got the time to test it right now. Let me tell you, is a productivity improvement tool.

It comes with a group of handy shortcuts.

  • zfdump|TAB| : Gives you the Zend_Debug::dump(dump); exit();
  • zfc|TAB| : Creates the full class for a brand new Zend Controller Action class for the Controller class
  • zfm|TAB| : Creates the full class for a brand new Zend_Db_Table_Abstract class, used as Model on MVC.

This are only a couple of example of useful shortcuts that the bundle comes with.

How to install the bundle ?

  1. Read the documentation over at Ybits blog
  2. Watch the Screencast
  3. Download the bundle
  4. Uncompress the bundle
  5. Copy the bundle folder into /YOUR_TEXTMATE_FOLDER/Contents/SharedSupport/Bundles/Zend-Framework.tmbundle
  6. Go to TextMate and Bundles > Bundle Editor > Reload Bundles

Enjoy the fun.
