CriticMarkup Bundle for TextMate 2

Update: Christian Tietze (@DivineDominion) has created a bundle that’s included in the official toolkit, so I contributed my bundle’s commands to that, and will be using and contributing to that one from now on. Get the full toolkit at CriticMarkup-toolkit or just the TextMate bundle at criticmarkup.tmbundle. I’ve already taken my repo down to prevent confusion.

Recently, @macdrifter and @themindfulbit announced CriticMarkup, a way for authors and editors to track changes to documents in plain text. I created a TextMate 2 bundle to add this markup to my favorite text editor for Markdown files.

Currently, the bundle implements the usual Markdown functionality, plus the five CriticMarkup tags:

  • Addition {++ ++} (⇧⌘A)
  • Deletion {-- --} (⇧⌘D)
  • Substitution {~~ ~> ~~}(⇧⌘S)
  • Comment {>> <<} (⇧⌘/)
  • Highlight {== ==}{>> <<} (⇧⌘H) (Bundle updated 2013-02-15, did not update the video)

It also contains the Critic theme used in the demo.

You can download and install the bundle from https://github.com/hiltmon/Critic-Markup.tmbundle. Let me know what you think via GitHub or Twitter.

This is at best beta-level software (my first public bundle) and has been tested and run on one and only one machine, mine with one version of TextMate, TM2! You takes your chances by installing it.
