960gs Textmate bundle

I spend quite a chunk of my time writing html and css. Lately I’ve been using 960 grid system as my go-to “framework” for designing grid-based layouts. While that saves me quite a bit of time that I used to spend writing CSS code to float elements around, there’s always ways to shave off a few minutes (or hours) of code writing. If you’re on a Mac and use Textmate to write your code, you may be interested in using the Textmate Bundle I just added to Github.

The video below shows a few examples of the functionality the bundle provides. In short, it lets you write grid-based layouts with just a handful of keystrokes. The video takes about two minutes.

Instructions for installing the bundle as well as a bit of documentation are both available on the project page at GitHub. Feel free to contribute by forking the project and sending me a pull request. If you don’t know how to use git, give me a couple more days to start providing versioned zip files you can download and double click to install. Time to crank a bit more code - have a great weekend!
