BBEdit + CTags

I posted a complaint a while ago about BBEdit complaining about a few things. I moved onto TextMate for a few weeks, but it lacked some of the powerful BBEdit features I’ve gotten used to.

Then I discovered ctags. I set up a cron on my PHP dev site to rescan my dev folder once an hour. BBEdit automatically discovered my ctags file and gave me the definitions right a right click.

Ctags is available through yum (yum install ctags).

ctags –languages=php –recurse=yes
