Making Textmate play nice with RVM
I finally sat down for a while this morning to get RVM working well with Textmate ruby running commands. Whilst pairing with the team at GoFreeRange we tend to stay in Textmate, write tests and then run them from there. But recently using RVM and .rvmrc config files within 1.9.2 projects we haven't been able to get the tests to run.
To make it easier than creating a textmate rvm wrapper, I run rvm so that it sets up the right ruby and paths. Then check if there is a
.rvmrc and take that into account.
I add these two lines to any Textmate commands (Bundles -> Bundle Editor -> Edit Commands...) for example the
Ruby -> Run command.
[[-f "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm"]] && . "$HOME/.rvm/scripts/rvm" [[-f "$TM_PROJECT_DIRECTORY/.rvmrc"]] && . "$TM_PROJECT_DIRECTORY/.rvmrc"
Have thoughts on what I've shared? Please tweet me @kalv publicly or privately, would love to chat.
