Multicolumn Editing With TextMate

This is my first attempt at creating a screencast, and considering that fact, I think it came out pretty well.

I’ve always had trouble getting multicolumn editing to work correctly using the keyboard shortcut; but I finally figured it out! Since I’m going to be making some screencasts for App Stop soon I figured I’d take a shot at doing a screencast on it. Here is the result.

NSSound+SoundList

It confounds me as to why Apple will provide an easy way to get a reference a standard system sound (via -soundNamed:) but doesn’t provide any easy way to get a list of available system sounds. Well, as you might of guessed, I’ve created a NSSound category that adds this functionality. The code is adapted from this cocoa-dev post. You can download the source files (BSD license) here.

On a side note I’ve updated the source code page. The underlying code is now alot cleaner (and renders correctly on IE!) and it uses some of those fancy AJAX transitions.

ManOpen Universal Binary

ManOpen is an awesome man page viewer that i use quite alot. Unfortunatly the author didn’t have a UB version of it availible. Since I have a MacBook Pro with a little bit of work I was able to convert the project over to using native XCode targets and compile a UB of ManOpen. I emailed the author about it a couple weeks ago and he hasn’t posted anything on the products site so I figured I’d throw the UB application & source code on my site for other people to download until he gets a chance to update his site. Note: I didn’t change any of the source code, just the project structure.

Color Blender 1.2

I’ve finally gotten around to getting Color Blender 1.2 out the door. There’s not alot of changes (hardly any at all), most of the changes are to the codebase and project structure.

  • Changed rgb copy string to be “r,g,b”
  • Compiled & tested as UB
  • Some code cleanup

Enjoy!
