Migrating TM 1 bundles to TM 2

Jon Ippolito-3
Hi all,

I'm a die-hard TextMate 1 user who upgraded to Catalina and am finally migrating to TextMate 2. That being said, I spent a lot of time in TextMate 1 on custom bundle snippets, themes, languages, macros, etc., so I'm hoping not to lose them.

Clicking on my original bundle brings up a TextMate 2 dialog box that asks if I want to install, but if I click "OK" it doesn't appear in the File menu, Bundle editor, or Preferences.

The TextMate wiki (https://github.com/textmate/textmate/wiki/FAQ), and past correspondence on this list, says this could be a problem with fs-events support, and suggests this fix:

rm ~/Library/Caches/com.macromates.TextMate/BundlesIndex.plist

Unfortunately there doesn't appear to be a plist in this directory--just BundlesIndex.binary. I tried deleting that to no effect.

After double clicking on my old personal bundle, a copy appears in ~/Library/Application Support/TextMate/Pristine Copy/Bundles. There is no error dialog box, and I see no errors or faults when I search for "textmate" in the Console after attempting the install.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Hi list,

I didn’t get a reply to this earlier message, so I’ve been manually migrating TM1 snippets and the like by changing their file extension to .txt and then copying the content into empty TM2 snippets (a pain, but do-able). However, I still haven’t found a solution for migrating macros, since they seem to have changed from a plist format in TM 1 to a JSON-style format in TM 2.

I’d love to hear any ideas for migrating macros to TM 2.
