If you’re like me, you launch TextMate from terminal using the following:
…except I typically open the file/folder I want opened at the end of the command:
mate [folder/file here]
I’m just starting to use TextMate 2 more frequently and wanted to do the same for that. All you need to do is link to your binary. Do the following to accomplish that:
- To find where your binary for TextMate 2 is, I just opened up your TextMate 2 preferences, click the terminal icon at the top and find the location (screenshot).
- Create your symlink:
sudo ln -s ~/bin/mate /usr/bin/mate2
(replace ~/bin/mate with whatever the location was from Step 1.
Now you can type the following and open up whatever folder or file you want with the new hotness!
mate2 [folder/file here]
