Gnuplot Bundle for TextMate

Posted on: 18 April 2008 in gnuplot, textmate, bundle

I've recently started developing a Gnuplot bundle for TextMate, and I've decided to host it on GitHub. Like a lot of people, I've recently started using Git instead of SVK, my previous choice of distributed VCS and SVN, so hosting on GitHub seemed a natural choice; plus how could I possibly ignore their cool network graphs?!

Gnuplot is an incredibly versatile and complex piece of graphing software which runs on a lot of different platforms, and can output even more different formats. I use it a lot at work (in publications, for example), and so I decided it was about time my favourite Mac editor had better support for it.

Of particular note are(/will be) autocompletion of terminal types, settings and plot commands; as well as snippets, and the ability to run your commands from TextMate and view the output in aquaterm. I'm looking forward to making it as useful as I can, and collaborating with anyone who fancies giving me a hand.

You can grab the bundle from GitHub using the following commands:

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Bundles
git clone git://github.com/mattfoster/gnuplot-tmbundle.git Gnuplot.tmbundle
osascript -e 'tell app "TextMate" to reload bundles'

Feel free to jump in and help out--- I'm new to writing TextMate bundles.
