TextMate 2 requires a slightly different path for bundles to work, made note of that

Using TextMate with Django

TextMate is a popular text editor for OS X. http://macromates.com/

(For those of us not lucky enough to have a mac, check out e http://e-texteditor.com - lets you use TextMate bundles and many of TextMate's features on Windows.)

One of the most interesting features is the ability to define "snippets", abbreviations which can be expanded into larger blocks of text containing placeholders. TextMate organizes most of its features -- including snippets, macros, templates, and drag-and-drop behaviors -- into language-specific "bundles."

There's a Django bundle, though it's not among the ones included with the application; you have to fetch it from the repository. It handles both Django templates and Django Python code. The bundle's Python snippets are built for the magic-removal branch of Django.

Install

% mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
% cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
% git clone https://github.com/textmate/python-django.tmbundle.git
% git clone https://github.com/textmate/python-django-templates.tmbundle.git

Users of TextMate 2, currently in alpha, should use a different path:

~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Managed/Bundles

Alternatively a svn repository is also available here :

% svn co http://svn.textmate.org/trunk/Bundles/Python%20Django.tmbundle/

Relaunch TextMate or choose Bundles -> Bundle Editor -> Reload Bundles to make the new bundles available.

The TextMate blog lists instructions here:

http://manual.macromates.com/en/bundles#installing_a_bundle

The bundle resides at:

http://svn.textmate.org/trunk/Bundles/Python%20Django.tmbundle

The Django-Python syntax in particular is a work in progress, and suggestions and contributions are welcome.
