Using TextMate with Django

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

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 (instructions here: http://macromates.com/blog/archives/2006/08/21/getting-more-bundles/). It handles both Django templates and Django Python code. The bundle's Python snippets are built for the magic-removal branch of Django.

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