TextMate: syntax highlighting for Erlang

06 Oct 2011

I've been learning a little Erlang in the last few weeks and sometimes I use my Macbook to write some small functions, libs and so on. But it seems that TextMate hasn't build-in support for Erlang, so all my pretty code was just black :-(

But that isn't that big a problem: I found a bundle for Erlang on github (man I love this site, makes finding those nice pieces of code even simpler) and added it. So you just have to do:

mkdir -p /Library/Application Support/TextMate/Bundles

then cd to this directory and clone the repo in there:

git clone https://github.com/textmate/erlang.tmbundle.git

Now when you restart TextMate and open a .erl file everything will be fine!
