RubyAMP released out into the wild

My company, Lead Media Partners, being as cool as they are, has fostered and encouraged me to improve TextMate to support many of the features I missed when switching from my other favorite IDE, RadRails. Over the last 3 months, I've been adding commands here and there, and have been packaging it up into a seperate bundle. With this bundle, TextMate has now officially been promoted to my favorite editor.

To see what all the hype is about, you can grab the bundle, get more info, and see a 5-minute long screencast I produced introducing the features over at

I've been trying to use the RubyAMP bundle to speed up my coding.
I'm still trying to figure out how to do something similar to the now
deprecated Rails debugger which used to allow a console to be opened up
from the testing environment.

Anytime I try to use any of the RubyAMP bundle commands I receive the
following error:
`require__': No such file to load -- appscript (LoadError) from
/usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:21:in `require'
from /Users/intention/Library/Application
from /Users/intention/Library/Application
`require' from /Users/intention/Library/Application
`const_missing' from /tmp/temp_textmate.2nfNou:3

Both the required gems are installed on the system and I can require
them from a console.

It seems to have something to do with the appscript gem.

Any help is appreciated.

This is awesome.

Any chance I could convince you to port it to Redcar? :)

Seriously, if you made the attempt, it would be useful to know exactly the kind of plugin APIs you need to make it work. Getting the plugin APIs is half of what I'm thinking about with Redcar atm.

Hi. The link now leads to a 404 Not Found. For posterity sake, could you fix it please?
