I have created this bundle to make the editing of the next generation GPlates
rotation files (
*.grot) easier in TextMate. The bundle primarily does syntax highlighting using
TextMate grammars and allows for code completion
with snippets such as
mprs expanding to a full Moving Plate rotation sequence header. Currently, the implementation
is fully backwards-compatible so
that all applications relying on the old PLATES rotation file format can still read the files with the new format.
It should be possible to import the TextMate Grammar/bundle into the popular VS Code editor which uses the TextMate Grammar.
Contributions to this bundle are happily acccepted - also, you can add issues using the issue tracker.
For background on the new rotation file standard please see
https://wiki.paleoearthlabs.org/software/gplates/grot/start and the supplementary material to Qin et al. (2012) here where the initial version of the new
*.GROT file syntax is described.
The original Fossil repository is mirrored on SourceHut.
Download a zip file from the repository on my website or on SourceHut. Double-clicking will install it in
~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Pristine Copy/Bundles. Once you open a
.grot File you should see
the syntax coloring, clicking the little cog at the bottom of the TextMate window will show the available functions/snippets.
Any edits you make to the files in the bundle will cause TextMate to create a new local copy of the bundle which
is stored in
Using the Terminal:
mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Pristine\ Copy\Bundles cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/TextMate/Pristine\ Copy\Bundles git clone git://email@example.com/~chhei/GPlates.tmbundle.git "GPlates.tmbundle"
