Review: 10 JavaScript editors and IDEs put to the test

Although it isn't documented yet, the Git bundle works well to integrate TextMate with Git and GitHub. TextMate recognized my existing Git repositories without any prompting when I opened them as project directories, and it was able to update them from GitHub using a pull command from the bundle. The SQL bundle lets you work with MySQL and PostgreSQL databases.

TextMate 2.0 is the newly updated code and markup editor for the Mac. TextMate is not an IDE but its snippets, macros, and scoping system can often provide features that even a language-specific IDE lacks. As seen above, TextMate now includes "bundles" for JavaScript and jQuery. (Click the image for the complete view.)
